Mario Lemieux was clutch, and was called by some the ultimate comeback king. The career-long Penguin, and no. 1 overall draft pick in 1984, has an insane list of achievements in the NHL: he was only the third rookie ever to score 100 points and won the Calder Trophy, won the Lester B. Pearson Award in 1986, won the Hart Trophy and Art Ross Trophy in 1988, repeated with the Art Trophy in 1989, while setting a single-season record for shorthanded goals, and we could go on and on. Throughout his career Lemieux underwent several surgeries and setbacks, but he always bounced right back (hence the nickname of comeback king). He finished his career with two Stanley Cup rings and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997.
The goal for any basketball franchise is to build a dynasty that fans and experts will be talking about for
