Now how many of those were (partly) down to the individuals in question just playing poorly?

You can't really blame LeBron in 09 (39-8-8) or Hakeem in 87 (31-13-4). Just two examples.

What about the others?

That a great discussion. Have at it.

Can't blame Duncan for 2006 as well.

lebron went away from what was working all year. forced his stat padding and took everyone out of the game.. standing around looking for kick out assists

when kobe trys to do too much and has great stats but loses. its his fault for hogging

when lebron does it. its not his fault.


go figure

Not a completely unfair assessment (close though).

Lebron shooting a lot definitely didn't work for that team.

IDK about Bird but Duncan never take flack for losses, they get the oh hes such a great teammate! praise when they lose, and OMG 2003! when they win.


Its no surprise the greatest winners, and players with the strongest will MJ and Russel top this list.. if the ball was in their court, they got it done.

the reason nobody hates on tim duncan is because nobody cares about tim duncan



nobody cares.


hes a nobody. never was important to basketball. flew under the radar his whole career. had no fans. no pressure. no impact

not legendary.

good team mate. great player... but not on the level of a shaq, hakeem, kobe, or even lebron

Fcuk are you talking about. How can a team possibly lose if their best player plays well?

It is kind of shocking.

But Bird played in a super competitive eastern conference and was in the mix his entire career. The very early years and the later injuries should be part of the jugement.
