The 11 Worst Individual NBA Playoff Performances in the Last 20 Seasons

The greatest individual outings get the glory, but the worst of the worst deserve some recognition, too. Which players turned in a clunker on the game's biggest stage?

LeBron James. Michael Jordan. Magic Johnson. Larry Bird. These are the names that come up in watering holes around the world. They're talked about as legends of the playoffs, because of their abilities to come up with big moments and big games on basketball's biggest stage.

Others have shined brightest on a one-game basis. Charles Barkley, Dirk Nowitzki and Allen Iverson make up that list, among many others.

On the flip side of that discussion, which players do we associate with the opposite of playoff greatness? Who has put up the biggest stinkers in recent history?

We would expect to get names most of us have probably never seen. But, with the help of Basketball Reference's Game Score metric, (for the most part) we'd be wrong to form that assumption.

In case you're unfamiliar Game Score is quite simple. It's a single number which acts as a rough measure of a player's productivity for a single game. The scale is similar to points, where 40 is outstanding, 10 is average and so on.

Get it? Got it? Good. Now let's get to the 11 most shameful playoff performances of the last 20 years.
