Same guy who led the NBA in 4th quarter scoring from 2007-2010. LBJ shots higher percentage than Kobe in clutch situations in the playoffs.

Kobe is 7/27 while LeBron is 5/12. In more than 100 fewer playoff games and 15 less attempts. LeBron has made nearly as many game-winners as the 16th years NBA Veteran Kobe.

You can't just "take into account the shorter line" because MJ's skill as a shooter from distance got better year after year. It merely happened to coincide with a shorter line from 3 in '95, '96, and '97.

By the way, the actual reason for the slight shortening of the line was an attempt to try to eliminate lane congestion. Not for people to have an easier time making 3 point baskets. Then they re-increased it back to original distance to keep defenders from having an easier time doubling players on the block.

He started shooting 38% from 3 point land in 1990, the same season I believe he was in the three point contest (although performed badly)

Shot 35% from 3 point land in 1993, the season before his retirement.

So this myth that MJ was a terrible 3 point shooter, is just that. A myth. That's wasn't his game to hoist low percentage shots, but if given to him, he could still hurt you from deep.

I think it speaks more to the intelligence of a player anyway, to not give the defense an easy time by shooting low percentage shots.

Since you guys are going with playoff gamewinners, you also need to find regular season game winners also.
