LeBron James Chokes Again [NoeBrainer]
Can you actually choke in an NBA All-Star Game? Absolutely. LeBron James has to do a better job of not shrinking when the game is on the line.
I know a choke job when I see one. LeBron James absolutely choked when he threw an errant pass at the end of the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. For anybody who is disputing this, LeBron even said so himself. When LeBron was interviewed by TNT's Craig Sager after the game, he acklowedged that he can't turn the ball over in a situation like this. LeBron also mentioned that he felt like he let his team down. Those were LeBron's words exactly.
Look, King James is immensely talented, but the guy has to do a better job in clutch situations. He was consistently a no show in the 4th quarter against the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals. Making a bad play in the NBA All-Star Game isn't the end of the world, but it's another example of LeBron failing to get it done when the game is on the line. There is no denying that James has to improve in that area.
