LeBron James is one of the most charismatic personalities in the NBA, and he maintained that same image when a reporter called him clutch once in a press conference.
Critics have said that the Lakers star has lacked the ‘clutch gene’ for the longest time during his NBA career. The narrative was born from LeBron’s early days in Cleveland.
There were instances when the Cavs star would pass out of a last-second shot or avoid taking a go-ahead bucket, and because of that many people believed that LeBron was afraid of stepping up when it mattered.
Things became worse when he went to the Miami Heat, especially after the loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011 NBA Finals as LeBron’s failures on the biggest stage had people questioning whether he could take control of the biggest moments like other NBA legends. However, this narrative is very false.
LeBron is the MOST CLUTCH player of All Time
