Yet, you want to point out that he had some kind of an all-world clutch performance, in the finals no less.
He had one of the greatest postseason performances the sport has ever seen. This is shown in just about every statistic and measuring stick there is. But other than that, yeah, he did nothing at all for his team.

I say "fact" because I presented clear game-to-game statistics. He did not make any game-winning shots. He had several opportunities, yet missed. He didn't take a whole lot of shots. And in the last minutes of those games, he often punted to a teammate.
You didn't present any such thing. Ignoring all of the evidence provided of LeBron playing well in close and late situations over his entire career in the regular season which quite clearly disproves your bullshit theory to begin with (http://www.82games.com/CSORT11.HTM, http://www.82games.com/1011/CSORT11.HTM, http://www.82games.com/0910/CSORT11.HTM, http://www.82games.com/0809/CSORT11.HTM), you selectively picked out a few playoff games last season where he missed a few shots late. That doesn't prove he's a choker or lacks a killer instinct, nor does it supersede the dominant basketball that he played for his entire playoff run.

Last year's playoffs were won by LeBron being absolutely nails for 3.5 quarters. In most of those games, the Heat were so dominant that they didn't need the last half quarter. But the facts are right there below that in the last half of the 4th quarter, he was mostly unremarkable, and in some cases, downright bad. But go ahead and dodge that point and tell me again how he did in the first 3.5 quarters of a game, which I've already pointed out as being very impressive.
They were won by LeBron being LeBron for the full four quarters of every game that the Heat played. He came through repeatedly when the Heat were on the verge of elimination on the road. Without him and his ridiculous play, Miami doesn't come close to a championship or even the NBA Finals. But he's a choker because he didn't take or make enough shots late in games to your liking? Because he was willing to pass the ball at times to his Hall of Fame teammates to allow them to use their skills as well to win a championship? It's absurd. Do you have any idea how butthurt all of this makes you look?
