NBA Power Rankings: Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Other Playoff Teams’ Closers

In spring training, many baseball teams are looking for closers to ice games. At the same time, NBA playoff teams are looking for a star to close the game for them. Some are obvious, others are debatable.

Either way, teams need to figure out who is taking their last shot.

To qualify playoff teams, I counted the top 10 teams in each conference. From there, I chose a player from each team that I think should be taking the last shot for each team. Then, I ranked them based on whom I would want having the ball in his hands at the end of a game.

Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think.

**Note: These players are from the top 10 teams in each conference as of March 27, 2011.
