Last Night with the game on the line against the Bulls in Chicago, The “KING Without a Ring” LeBron James threw up an “AIRBALL” which ended in a Miami Heat defeat. James has ONLY hit One BIG Shot in his entire playoff career. It was Game 2 of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals against the Magic. James hit a Game winning 3 Point shot at the buzzer over Hedo Turkoglu to tie the series at a game apiece. That singular moment was the lone Exception to the rule for LeBron.
If I was Mike Kryzewski in the 2012 Olympics with the Gold Medal on the line under 8 seconds left down by 3, there would be absolutely NO way I would even consider giving the ball to LebBron in that situation.
Make no mistake about it, LeBron is Arguably the BEST basketball Player in the World and maybe even this year’s M.V.P. (I pick Derrick Rose). However with THE GAME ON THE LINE, there are at the very least 20 players I would take in a New York minute over the “KING”. Here they are: Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Durant, Joe Johnson, Montae Ellis, Manu Ginoboli, Danilo Gallinari, Hedo Turkoglu, Rashard Lewis, Jason Kidd, Chauncey Billups, Michael Redd, Arron Afflalo, Brandon Rush, & Stephen Curry.
Bottom Line: If the Miami heat ever have any hopes of winning an NBA Championship or more, you better let D. Wade, Mike Miller, or Mario Chalmers take the shot with it all on the line because LeBron WON’T make it!
