WHO DO YOU WANT ON THE LINE AT THE END OF A GAME?

Steve Nash, Suns G 33.9%

Kobe Bryant, Lakers G 23.4%

Chauncey Billups, Nuggets G 15.2%

Ray Allen, Celtics G 10.5%

José Calderon, Raptors G 7.0%

FAST FACTS

Bryant's reputation as a cold-blooded buzzer beater—he has three so far this year—may have influenced voters; his 84.8% free throw shooting in '09 ranks just 14th in the NBA.... Conversely, Manu Ginobili, who ranks fourth in free throw percentage this year (89.6) received zero votes.... Only two non-guards, the Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki and the Hornets' Peja Stojakovic, received more than one vote.
