Default Is Lebron always terrible in the 4th?

We know he can't make free throws in the clutch or make jumpers in the clutch, but is he just in general not a good crunch time player?

Are you kidding me? What criteria are you using to make this statement? If I'm not mistaken he lead the league in 4th quarter scoring last year. He hasn't had to play a lot of 4th quarters this season due to blow out victories, so his 4th quarter numbers this year wouldn't be anything special. He nearly assisted on game tying shots twice in the final seconds of tonight's loss at Atlanta.

Yes, you're exactly right, he's the worst player on the Cavs. No scratch that, he's the worst player in NBA history. He should be shot.

Well judging from tonight's game he is scared to shoot because he kept passing it back out... Joe Johnson was the man and hit the big turn around fadeaway! We gotta see Lebron doing it more

I'm not saying that. I mean, if he showed up more than 1 game against Boston they could have won. I must never see the games when he's clutch though.

crunch isnt 4th quarter, its when the game is close with a couple minutes left.and hes isnt clutch in that time. check your stats again because when hes in those sitiations he shys away from the ball, shots jumpers,misses free throws and isnt the best player but not the worst. he wouldnt make my top guys i want down the stretch

Scared to shoot? Not exactly, he has teammates that he trusts to hit open shots, which just were not dropping tonight. Probably due to the fact they are minus two key contributors and were on the road for the second game of a back to back. Don't compare Joe Johnson chucking up bad shots to LeBron being a team player. LeBron drove to the basket and drew the defense and kicked it out for a 3 which they needed to tie the game. Then gets the offensive board and found Delonte wide open out top. Unlucky both shots failed to go in.

Also I am pretty sure the Cavs record is inflated due to their easy schedule. And the few good teams they have played have all been hurt (similar to their Finals run).

Except by this description not only was LBJ the most clutch in the entire NBA last year, he was also one of the clutchest of all time. He had some crazy amount of points in the clutch last year.

So is the Celtics record then. Their schedule has been even easier than the Cavs.

And i am also pretty sure that you are the biggest moron on this site. Cavaliers are a top 3 team in the NBA, and the Hawks just got lucky that Z was on the Cavaliers injured lists.
