Every NBA team has a list of the best of times. But which particular play stands as the pinnacle for the respective organizations?
Every NBA team has an unofficial list of their best plays on a year-to-year basis. Comb through them all and make some tough decisions and you get an ultimate list of the greatest plays in a franchise’s history.
Given the nature of the league, where some teams have more championships than others playoff appearances, these plays vary in style and significance. Some can claim a championship-clinching jumper, others an improbable regular season game-winner.
Every franchise, by default, still has a signature play that stands about the rest. It’s the shot, dunk, block, or whatever else representing the pinnacle of joy in the history of their existence.
In a battle between two equally worthy plays, however, people of different ages with varied opinions will attribute varying levels of gravity. So prepare for such cases in a look back at some of the best the NBA’s extensive vault of plays has to offer.
