Larry Hughes sure as hell wasn't doing that shit.
Who give a crap about Larry Hughes again?
Jordan had to bail his team out more often than Magic/Bird/Isiah, no one wants to touch this argument because they know they got nothing on it.
Kobe tries to mimic this but has it blow up in his face half the time. It's the reason he's obsessed with "hero ball" because he idolized Jordan growing up, but he's missing a few of the marbles upstairs.
LeBron will just mentally check out if things aren't going his way or defeat looks imminent.
