LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the favorites in just about every category this season.
GMs around the NBA picked the Heat to three-peat (75.9%) and LeBron to win MVP (69%), while also voting him for a bunch of other superlatives, including player you'd build your team around (89.7%).
But when it came down to the player you want taking the last shot, they took Kevin Durant (39.9%) and Kobe Bryant (32.1%) over James (7.1%), who tied with Carmelo Anthony -- yeah the same guy who's won zero big playoff games.
Apparently, LeBron hasn't shaken his rep for not being clutch. Despite this:
We'll see if LeBron is so eager to pass at the end of games now.

Do I think of myself as some sort of an NBA aficionado? Most of the time I do.
Not only have I grown up on the NBA but I once had dreams to be a player in the National Basketball Association. Those dreams failed with four knee injuries. But my love for the game never stopped and it’s a love I hope to some day pass on...
