ESPN Magazine did a poll of 30 anonymous NBA players asking them who they would want to take the last shot out of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Lebron James. Players, not surprisingly, picked Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant over James.
“I really don’t care what 30 guys in our league say about me taking the last shot. I’ve got a few game winners in my career. I don’t let teams hang around too much for the last shot. I don’t think the definition of clutch is who takes the last shot. There are guys who come through for their teams in different circumstances.”
Well…there you have it. Great answer by the reigning NBA MVP and Champ.
