Why was the hottest shooter on the OKC team NOT attempting shots in last 3 mins.

Reggie Miller will fall down literally SHOOTING THE BALL in this situation.
The guy FELL DOWN DOE.

No pressure, he pivots and pivots, no dribble, Tony just steps out of the way... He falls down and loses the ball.

not I'm worried about.

11/21 shooter FAILED to come to get the ball at the top of the key when MEM is playing terrific D.

Durant knows he's gotta take 3 out of 4 OKC FGA in final 3 especially with Martin completely off.

Durant mentioned he is worried about FG% dropping by shot attempts.

When ball is denied by terrific defense, you come up & get the ball on top.

plain & simple.

Making mistakes isn't choking, being too afraid to put yourself in the position to make those mistakes when you're being relied upon is choking.

Making mistakes during crunch time is part of choking.

Precisely.

Bron and KD are both chokers ok, no ones arguing that.

Kobe represents the last of the ultra clutch, cold blooded superstars. It's sad but it's just how the league is now. No use getting upset about it.

Not even that.

NOT getting to the Top of the key to get the ball after being 11/21 the whole game is CHOKING.

NOT even attempting to take over last 3 mins of the game AT HOME is CHOKING.

Waiting for officials to bail you out & win you games is CHOKING.

Did you even see PLAYOFF KOBE?

Kobe literally CHOKED AWAY rings & PO series all by himself.

2011 Mavs series.

2012 OKC series was the greatst CHOKE JOB I've seen in a while.

Kobe might have won multiple rings. When it comes to clutchness, he aint eve close to MILLER.

When you talk ULTRA clutch, Its only MJ, BIRD, MAGIC, MILLER.

LeBron scores 15 points in the fourth quarter in Game 1, but didn't do much under 2 minutes left - 2398529359 threads on ISH.

Durant scores 10 points in the fourth quarter, under 3 minutes left he went 0-3, and had a CRUCIAL turnover - 1 thread made on it and people are saying he didn't choke.

ISH

Do you deny these truths?

3 rings to Shaq and 1 to Gasol and LeBron is the best since Jordan.

So yes I disagree.

I deny the bold part.

Shaq's DOMINANCE from 1999-2004 says. He is THE BEST since 1998 MJ.

LBJ's 4 MVP's & DOMINANCE says, he is clearly the THE BEST since Shaq.

Kobe = Duncan.

Both products of WINNING FRANCHISES & all-time greats.

BEST since MJ?

Clearly NO!
