I'm at my parents' for the holiday weekend. They went to bed, which is a problem because they have the only TV. It was too late to hit up a bar before the end, and I couldn't find any links, so i hit up the gamecast. I had to keep track of the biggest shot in Cavs history on a freakin GAMECAST.
Are you comparing a shot in which a player was going full speed in one direction, stops on a dime and shakes the **** out of a defender to win a game to a regular contested jumper? Really?
No, this shot will not go down to be as big as Jordan's. Jordan is Jordan.
I like Jordan's shot better by a hair, but don't just tell me that was a "regular contested jumper", because doing so you make it seem like it was Lebron taking a mid-range jumper against some dude in the middle of the 2nd quarter, instead of a fade-away three pointer buzzer beater (at least TWENTY FIVE FEET from the basket) with 1 second to square up and release the shot. The shot was amazing, you can't deny it.
Lebron ISN'T clutch though. He made one shot. He has horrible in the fourth, going 1-5 and 3 turnovers. There's a reason the Magic took the lead near the end. He was quiet in the fourth last game too, just let the Magic take over and steal a game.
Great shot, but nothing like Jordan's which was a series winner in a do or die game. If Cavs don't win this series (very likely), no one is remembering that shot (just like Kobe's against the Suns).
If one shot defines clutchness (after a horrible fourth quarter), then I guess Glen Davis is the second clutchest player in the league?
Over the past 6 years who has hit the most gamewinners in the league in the regular season ?
Who has hit the most gamewinner in the playoffs over that period ?
Who has had the best clutch stats the past two years ?
The answer to all three is the same man, and he wears the number 23.
omg, ok i know its just a game and i know im just a fan (not actually playing) but i think i really hate this LeBron guy.... like i want him to lose at everything for the rest of his life... everything
Clutch would be kobe last night in the last minute of the game, hitting 2 big threes & a big pull up jumper... Phil didnt give him the ball in the last possession, shame BUT nice shot tho ill give props but still def not the biggest clutch player in the league
