and I find it funny that LeBron has more playoff clutch moments than Kobe and LeBron is a guy who doesn't even try and be the closer most of the time

(yes, he also has a lot of well documented blatant chokes which I will say Kobe doesn't really have any where you're like 'oh shit what a choke job')

but my point is...I cringe when I hear guys like Stuart Scott refer to Kobe as the "best closer in the NBA"

holy shit couldn't be further from the truth
He has one ring, and he has more clutch playoff performances?

How is that possible when the other guy has 5 rings?

Kobe's 01-02 performances were insane.

As for closing, who's better? Kobe's volume of game-winning shots is probably about 10x that of the next person, so those stats are skewed, but if he's not, who is?
