    I find this really interesting. It seems LeBron was viewed as a poor clutch performer earlier on in his career when in fact, according to his clutch stats, he was pretty effective.

    Once he went to Miami, the narrative really changes after 2011, but judging from what we see, things seem to be less favorable. It might be (though it would probably require a much deeper analysis), that LeBron hasn't really been a consistent clutch player since his Cleveland days.
