The reputation is well deserved at least based on the 2012 playoffs. Kobe has a reputation for being clutch because for every 100 attempts he jacks up in game-winning situations, he makes like 12 of them. Therefore the 12% of the time he succeeds in clutch situations is magnified by the media and overshadows the rest of his crunch time bricks/airballs.

Not sure if serious. LeBron's Game 6 @ Boston >>>> Kobe's career.

Lebron's not a choker, but he doesn't have the skillset to be a "clutch god." Durant does, Lebron doesn't. In the first three quarters, Lebron usually scores when he's open, when he's hot, or when there's a hole in the defense. For the most part, that's the only time you want to be scoring. But sometimes, you have to force it anyway. In those moments I don't fear Lebron as much as I fear Paul, Durant, Pierce, Kobe. Lebron's shot simply isn't good or dependable enough. Because he's so damn good and so conscientious about making the right play, it doesn't show up in percentages, but in the last 3 minutes of close games, there's a clear difference in approach between Lebron and Durant. Lebron's a lot more handicapped.

win or lose, Lebron's stat line is always the same. I just for a few games, especially in playoffs, where Lebron can just say, f*** assist, f*** passing when teammates aint hitting shots, I'm gonna go out and just bombs away because i'm a 4-time MVP and it's time to just put on a show and carry them.

I want Lebron to go for 45+ pts where he just dominates offensively the whole game. Not just in a 3-4 minutes stretch, but the whole game. I want him to tell Wade, "take a back seat son, and just enjoy the show"

But no, it's always the 26-27pts, 8-9 reb, 8-9 assist. I mean, it is a GREAT stat line for just about any other players in the league, but not Lebron. It's average for Lebron. I would like him to be better than average.

well i dont think anyone calls him a "Clutch God" but to be fair he still did very well in the 4th quarter scoring points and making his free throws it was just that last shot probably wasnt a good idea on his part.

Some players get their airballs cleaned up for them.
