The Most Clutch Basketball Player in NYC

Hammon_919Who is the most clutch ballplayer in NYC right now?

Stephon Marbury? Nope.

Allan Houston? Nope.

Jason Kidd even though he’s in NJ? Nope.

Right now, its not a guy. It’s a girl. Becky Hammon is the clutchest ballplayer in NYC right now.

Three games in a row, she’s won the game for the hometown team.

Yesterday, we went to see the final game of the year between The Liberty and The Washington Mystics. It was close the entire game. No team went up by more than 5 or 6 the entire game. With about a minute left, she nailed a three from the top of the key and then finished with a bunch of free throws to put the game away.

And what’s even better is that she’s a great role model for my kids. No tatoos. No drug arrests. No bad attitude. And she’s always smiling out there.

If you live in the NY area and you’ve got kids and want to show them how ball should be played, particularly if you’ve got girls, you have to go see the Liberty.
