Has lebron been not clutch in any of the close down to the wire games so far?
against denver the first time, he made the right decision in passing to ray allen and also made a layup and 2 FT's with 2 minuten to go.
against atlanta he made tje jumper that put the game away for the Hawks.
against houston he made 38 points, 32 of them came after halftime, 8 of them in the final 2 minutes
the second game against denver he made 2 important free throws and a very nice assist voor a great 3 pointer from norris cole
then against milwaukee, again he made some very nice assists to wade and allen and also made the rebound layup that tied the game in the last 20 secs of the game. in the overtime he scored 4 more points and had another assist.
finally against cleveland, james started the 8-0 run that the heat needed in the final 2 minutes and once again made the game winner assist to ray allen.
it seems like lebron has realy stepped up his late game decisions and play.

He's always been clutch, he's just not that good in late game isolation attempts.

How quick will this get shut down.... And D-Wade is clutch Lebron is Lebron when it comes to situations when it matters.

lebron has always been clutch. taking a contested shot rather than making the right play is not clutch, it is selfish and the times is works are greatly outnumbered by the times it doesnt.

to me, clutch is making the highest percentage play when it matters.

lebron is and always has been clutch haters can't find a weakness in his near perfect game so they jump on the not being clutch thing.

to me clutch isnt just a last second shot, its sealing a win in the final quarter/couple minutes. Against Boston last year in game 6 and 7 he was extremely clutch. He took the game over and made sure they wouldnt lose, now thats clutch. (this coming from a Boston fan)

Cool, you just realized he was clutch. Better late than never.

Do we have to have this thread every year? and sometimes 3 times a year..... Form your own opinion and be happy with it. The whole clutch discussion is so played out.

He is not a last shot taker and he does tense up. Apart from Dallas in 11 he does have a good record of showing up in key moments.
