Media pundits argue all of the time about which athletes contain the “clutch gene.”

Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Ray Allen, Tom Brady, John Elway rank among the greats in the respective sports. Even players like Tim Tebow have garnered acclaim for playing big in the clutch moments.

Kentucky Wildcats guard Aaron Harrison has proven himself to be a major “clutch” player with ice in his veins.

For three games in-a-row heading into the NCAA National Championship game, he has hit the go-ahead three-point shot to win. Three straight game winners. THREE. How clutch is that?

After having hit last-second shots to advance from the Sweet 16 to the Elite 8 and again to the Final Four, Wildcats’ fans (and college basketball fans in general) were on the edge of their seats as the final seconds ticked off the clock as the game was the Wisconsin Badgers to lose—up 73-71. The ball made its way into Aaron Harrison’s hands, and the rest is history.

Tweet of the Day: Atlanta Hawks Fall Victim to Snowpocalypse 2014

I285-snow

Atlanta motorists deadlocked on I-285 during Snowpocalypse 2014.

The city of Atlanta has fallen prey to Snowpocalypse 2014—also known as Snowmageddon.

Tuesday afternoon, the clouds opened up and—combined with temperatures in the teens—spewed forth a few inches worth of snow. Not much, but enough to cause chaos among Atlanta natives. Though the city has snow plows and salt trucks, none were put to use prior to the snow storm, yielding slick, icy roads incapable of supporting normal traffic, much less a mass exodus.

With snow and ice abound, schools, jobs and the government all shut down, filling streets and interstates with countless motorists trying to find their way to home. Many travelers were left stranded overnight in their cars, unable to drive on the ice or stuck behind auto accidents caused by it.

The impact of Snowpocalypse has now impacted the NBA, causing the Atlanta Hawks to postpone their matchup against their former small forward Josh Smith and the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night.

In an unrelated announcement, the NBA took to Twitter to hype the marquee matchup among Wednesday night’s games. This announcement led to a hilarious response from the Atlanta Hawks.

The chaos that Tuesday’s snow brought on the city of Atlanta and its motorists was felt by many, including some of the Hawks’ players.

The weather conditions are expected to continue through Thursday afternoon. Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll expressed his relief that he has enough food to last through the inclement weather.

For the last three seasons, that was the most important question for the other 29 NBA teams — and it remains the case this season, too.

But the Knicks and Nets did it on successive nights, which shows it is not impossible.

Brain-twister for you today, folks.

Go back to the start of the 2005-06 regular season, and try to name a superstar player who has represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. Your answer cannot include LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo or Ray Allen.

It’s OK. Keep thinking …
