Lebron used to play them right. Now he's a huge ballhog on game winners actually.

Just like Kobe. They are both really poor at them given their talents. They take way too many shots and both convert them at a poor rate.

Thats why you are much better off with Dirk or Melo having the ball. They convert them at a higher rate and make better decisions.

The fact that MJ only took 16 (or 15) game winning shots in the playoffs is the most amazing stat of all to me. To put that in perspective that's an average of only 1.23 (or 1.15 if you count just 15) clutch shots ATTEMPTED per year during his entire Bull's career. If anything that simply strengthens my position that the concept of being "clutch" as it simply refers to game winning shots is an overrated concept. Even the consensus GOAT hit said shot only 9 times out of his total 179 playoff games. I've always said that game winning shots are excellent highlights but just don't happen frequently enough IMO to warrant all of the attention they receive in player comparisons.

they have played the same amount of games almaost and kobes has 2X more, somethings weird about that

The thing is, Jordan was so good that his teams were hardly ever losing, unlike Kobe's teams.
