Lol, he still is clutch. Pretty ure he's hit some big shots last season for Dallas, remember OKC first game of the season?

The other night, hit a 3 vs the Bobcats, though they still lost.

As usual the retards that never watch any games expose themselves
Vince is clutch as fu*k.. Still an underachiever in most people's eyes though.,

No that title would go to the pair that had a 4th quarter double digit lead on these two and lost the game.

I don't know how Harden choked. He had Lebron James on him contesting his shot. I've seen plenty of players miss contested shots. It happens. The Lin airball......he's going to grow from that i think. He wasn't ready for that big moment. He did it against Toronto, but that's Toronto lol. I'm just happy we kept it close and had the lead. This really should've been a laugher.

Vince Carter is goddamn clutch. He has many game winners and still doing it well. Get real.

Harden & Lin choked but it's just one game. We know Lin hit some daggers in NY. Also who cares? He isn't the guy suppose to carry the team in clutch. He is paid for playmaking.

I @ the Lin air ball.

Didn't like the last play where you call a timeout, let the defense set and then pull up for a tough 3 over Lebron. If you're going to run a simple ISO play, forget the timeout and just push the ball before the defense can set.

...as far as Vince Carter goes, i sure dont remember him being a "choker", counting here since 1996 he has accumulated more gamewinners than anybody except Kobe:



and thru 2003-2009 he has hit more gamewinners than anybody except Lebron:

In games his team needs him to step up for wins he is not clutch. Clutch players have key moments and shots for wins against rivals or in the playoffs. Vince is know for shrinking in those games.

Anyways clutch isn't always about the last shot It's about doing what it takes to win....being that guy when the team needs it.. By the numbers he might be #2 or 3 but cmon now he's not nearly on the level of Bron or Bryant.
