PLAYERS: LeBron James
TEAMS: Miami Heat
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. James response to the poll: “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.

LeBron James Talks Allen Iverson’s Influence on Him

This isn’t surprising to me. A lot of NBA player could relate a lot more to Allen Iverson than say Michael Jordan. Most players looked up to Jordan, but their real lives were probably more like Iverson and The King was no different. “I watch Jordan more than anybody, for sure,” James told ESPN’s Chris Broussard for a story in the upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine. “But...

NBA Players say Jordan & Kobe over LeBron for a Last Second Shot

Perception, is an extremely powerful thing. There are some people who say it comes very close to reality in terms of importance, but one thing I will say is what people think is true is generally what they choose to believe. Even if it may not necessarily be the case. That’s kind of how I feel about the anonymous player poll done by ESPN The Magazine, in which they asked current...
