Default Italy earned a Wikipedia entry: CHOKE

According to FIBA.com they missed five straight freethrows with one second left , losing 68-71 to Lithuania.

Italy will be cursed forever for stealing the 2006 World Cup with diving and insults.

Argentina is also through with a comfortable 79-62 win, despite shooting 1-18 from 3pt land.

Shoot enough and u will sink some.


PS it was a joke but i forgot Kobe fans have 0 personality when it comes to him.

But seriously he isn't clutch. Sleeps with ugly white chicks, acts like he is hard. Could he be any more Italian.

6/19 from the FT line... aweful. For a team so good from the 3 point line.. they sure don't practise their FTs enough.

He is not clutch. He shoots every game deciding shot and misses more then he hits.

Tiger Woods looses 75% of competitions but he's arguably the best golfer ever. Kobe misses a lot because he gets doubled all the time when the game is on the line and I rather trust him shooting with 2 defenders on him than Odom who got the chance to be clutch at least 5 times and missed or either did a stupid turnover or when Kobe passes the ball to Luke who decides not to shoot a wide open shot but to pass back to Kobe who is defended by 3 guys and can't get a shot up. Does any other superstar get doubled with the game on the line? Not Lebron,Not Wade nor T-mac.

You can't judge clutchness by statistics when it comes to Kobe. If you could,coaches would select Terry as the guy they want with the ball in their hands with 4 secs left but they chose Kobe because he can create his own shot and no matter how much times he misses,defenders fear him in the last mins of a game and so do coaches.

LeBron and other get doubled all the time and pass out of it all the time.
If they are not doubled it cause they pass from time to time and teams are afraid to give a player a wide open shot. No one fears Kobe in the last minute cause u know he is goin to shoot and you can double team him. Coaches fear player like Nash who has the ability to do so many thing you don't know how to play against them.

Never compare golf to basketball

Lebron has the shooters. Kobe has who? Name one shooter on the Lakers? That's why the Lakers signed Vladmir. He can shoot the three when Kobe passes it to him. There was a survey with NBA coaches and over 70% of them chose Kobe to have the last second shot. I'll try to find it.

Here I found one that was done in the 2002-2003 season by general managers

Oct. 22: Who is the player most likely to make a last-second shot if a game depended on it?
Kobe Bryant - 42.3%
Reggie Miller - 38.5%
Michael Jordan - 15.4%
Allen Iverson - 3.8%

97% of NBA coaches arenīt his coach, they want the Lakers to lose and 70% want him to take the last shot. Think.
