Why does LeBron struggle from the line during clutch moments?

- those crucial missed fts against the Clippers
- the 2 misses against chicago earlier

Thoughts?

  • Honestly,

    I think a sports pyschologist is most qualified to answer this question. :)

    I do think there's a huge mental roadblock in his brain but I have absolutely no idea how that roadblack was formed and what triggered its formation.

    Hence the sports pychologist reference.

    Tanungin mo rin chief yung topic about Jordan saying Kobe is the only one deserving of the comparison bat nila siningit si Lebron. :lol:



    @topic

    I think the pressure gets to him whenever big situation like that happens. :lol:

    Pressure and fatigue plus the crowd kung sa homecourt ng kalaban ang laro. It happens to the best of them.
  • to be fair si idol d.rose din kanina, kung nashoot yung 2 freethrows niya may chance sana silang manalo.. parang yung game 5 lang nung eastern finals..
  • mental pressure during clutch situations, nauuna ang utak (kaba) bago sa gagawin. walang killer instinct kumbaga. mahirap na gawan ng paraan yan kasi every clutch situation na haharapin ni lebron, mawawala yung focus niya na "kailangan ipanalo ko to". that's why sports psychologist talaga kailangan niya.
  • Just a clarification: I'm neither a Kobe nor a LeBron fanboy. Is there really a need to mention Kobe in every LeBron topics and vice-versa? Is that how shallow these fanboys could be?

    The irony here is that I'm actually a fanboy of a former Tar Heel who unfortunately missed 2 fts in the ecf 2 years ago. :naughty:

    LeBron's ft % in the clutch for the last 4 seasons are 86, 84 80 and 85. Not bad numbers right? But I swear I've been a witness to all those missed fts during clutch situations. I even remember him missing some crucial fts during that memorable "We are all Witnesses" performance against Detroit 5 years ago.

    Setting aside all the statistics, I still can't believe that a player of his caliber seems to have a hard time in this aspect.
  • ^so for the last 4 seasons LeBron averaged 84% from the line, I dont know how we can consider that as struggling.

    Baka naman we only remember the 16% that he missed.
  • Lebron's clutch stats are padded anyway. How many times has he asked for the ball and take it hard to the basket for easy layups when his team is down by five with 5 seconds to go? He hasn't done it too much nowadays, but during his Cleveland days, he almost always does it.

    a career 75% free throw shooter averaging 84% in the clutch. those numbers actually run counter to what you're saying.

    though to answer your question i think it's either your perception on lebron. you remembered his struggles against lob city and chi but you didn't mention (on purpose?) his 8/8 4th qtr against detroit.

    just like last season, when people said that lebron choked. but think about it, choking and everything included, he was still better in crunch time than those players who are supposedly more clutch than him, well except for dirk of course.
