Kobe is a legend. Lebron is a legend. MJ is a legend. All 3 of them have made clutch shots and game winners
Kobe is probably the most clutch player in sports history. Its not hard to stick to the subject of this thread
And yet no-one is taking him over Kobe for a last shot. No one.
Ain’t no one picking Bron over Kobe you can post all the charts you wantBut that wasn't the post I was responding to. The comment claimed that LeBron just defers to role players in the clutch. Pretty incredible that Kobe is known for taking far more late-game shots than anyone else in NBA history, while LeBron is know for "deferring" when his teammates are open, yet Bron somehow ends up making more late game clutch shots than Kobe does.
You can still believe Kobe is the best at late game shots. He certainly tries to take the most difficult shots more regularly, and they look more spectaular when they go in, and that drives a lot of narrative. But jumping off that narrative to try to claim LeBron doesn't take and make an enormous # of clutch shots is ridicuous.
He literally has more playoff game-winners than any other player in history. He literally has more game-winning buzzer beaters than any other player in history. He has approximately ONE HUNDRED game-tying or go-ahead field goals in the final minute. How is that even possible if he is always deferring?
