Ten Reasons LeBron James Is the Most Clutch Player in the NBA and Why the Narrative That He Isn't Is the Dumbest Thing in Sports

8. Then there's this one against the Celtics
Because, screw the Celtics.

7. LeBron is the first player in NBA playoff history with a triple-double and a buzzer-beater game winner in the same game.
That game came against... WAIT FOR IT, GREGGGGGGG... the Pacers. MJ never did that. Kobe never did that. Wilt never did that. Larry Bird never did that.

6. He leads the world in this clutch, last-shot stuff
Since he came into the league in 2003, nobody (NO. BOD. EEE.) in the NBA has made more game-tying and/or go-ahead shots in the final 24 seconds of playoff games than LEBRON THE COBRADICK JAMES.

5. Oh. Do you need to see that in STATS form? OK. Cool.

I haven't read Doyle's column yet, yours is more fun.  But he's been a LeBron hater for YEARS.  Last year he was writing about how LeBron looked anxious and nervous in PRACTICE between games.  Anything to find a reason to predict failure. 

Sometimes I think he writes the things he does for "clicks."  He knows better but his ego won't let him tell the truth.  Too many people would afgree with that and he would not generate the response he needs to keep his column afloat.  I think that is the case for his years long hard on re: Lebron.
