Arrow Interesting graphic which puts LeBron James' 2011 Choke into perspective





2011 DAL Dirk Nowitzki's Teammate rating +0.4
2011 MIA Lebron James' Teammate rating +5.1

Look how good of a supporting cast LeBron had in 2011 while he choked away a win to a team who's second best player was Jason Terry

Puts into perspective how much LeBron had to do in 2015.

The graphic doesn't account for the fact that LeBron was a designated 3rd option in that series (a role which he performed at a GOAT level) so he couldn't utilize his supporting cast to the full extent (if any really).

If you retooled this graphic to the strenght of D-Wade's supporting cast (which would include LeBron) the rating would climb up over 10 easily.

And yet Wade still failed to win, proving he was not capable of performing 1st option duties anymore.

2015 GSW Steph Curry's Teammate rating +4.5
2015 CLE Lebron James's Teammate rating -0.1

LeBron's teammate's had a greater advantage(4.7) than Dirk's in 2011 than Curry's(4.6) compared to LeBron's in 2015...And LeBron still lost in 2011!

Dirk was able to overcome

LeBron was not

How nervous are you that when this list is updated, Curry's name will be right at the top without a checkmark next to it?

Dirk was able to overcome

Lebron was not the first option in 2011 we know this from 2 facts: Lebron was 3rd in usage in the finals, aswell as the coaching staff admitting that lebron was the third option.

In the summer of 2010, the Heat's higher-ups made the mistake of thinking they had acquired the best player at his position, instead of realizing they had acquired the best player in the world. "He was just the small forward and that was it," says one of their coaches. Miami fell in the 2011 Finals to the Mavericks, with James marooned on the wing, clanking midrange jumpers. Regardless of what the box score still indicates, that was his last experience at small forward. "We went from plugging him into a system," the coach says, "to molding a system around him." The Heat wised up and handed LeBron the ball. Location wasn't all that important.

Also while Michael Jordan had a high teammate rating in 1996, his opponent in Payton also had a high teammate rating, for a difference of only +0.3.

The chart should have Wade's name by 2011. Miami was still considered his team/captain until the following season.

This concludes Steph Curry choked 12% more than Lebron James did

But we already knew that

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?

Well, Curry would brick it with Kevin Love guarding him 1 on 1
and turn it over...
and air ball it...
Damn
