LBJ = GOAT.

What can’t LeBron James do?

Score 30 points? Check.

Triple-double? No problem.

Game winner at the buzzer? Sure.

LeBron is the first player in NBA postseason history with a triple-double and a buzzer-beater game winner in the same game.

Magic never did it. Jordan never did it. Bird never did it. Not even Oscar or Wilt. Only LeBron.

Not too long ago, the discussion was about how LeBron wasn’t clutch. That no longer seems to be a discussion.

>>2003-04: LeBron's first NBA season

Since LeBron came into the league in 2003-04, nobody in the NBA has made more game-tying and go-ahead shots in the final 24 seconds of playoff games than LeBron, who is 7-of-16 on those shots. His 43.8 field goal percentage on those clutch shots ranks the best in the NBA since his rookie season among players with at least 10 attempts. The league average is 28.3 percent on those shots.

Along with his buzzer-beater layup to defeat the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron also made a go-ahead layup with just under 11 seconds remaining in overtime.


The buzzer-beater was LeBron’s first game winner in the final 10 seconds of a playoff game since his buzzer-beater against the Magic in Game 2 of the 2009 Eastern Conference finals.

Coincidentally, that shot came exactly four years ago to the day -– May 22, 2009.

The last time any NBA player made a buzzer-beater to win a playoff game was Paul Pierce for the Celtics in 2010 against the Heat.

LeBron and Ralph Sampson are the only players in NBA history with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks in a playoff game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Sampson did it in 1986 for the Rockets against the Nuggets. Blocks became an official statistic in 1973-74.

Best FG Pct on Game-Tying/Go-Ahead FG

LeBron James 43.8 7-16
Kevin Durant 41.7 5-12
Dirk Nowitzki 41.7 5-12
Manu Ginobili 30.0 3-10
>>Minimum 10 FGA

Since the 2006 postseason, a player has had a playoff triple-double with at least 30 points four times. All four of those players are named LeBron James.

The last player other than LeBron to accomplish that feat was Steve Nash, for the Suns in 2005 against the Mavericks.

LeBron and Oscar Robertson are the only players in NBA history with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a playoff game four times, according to Elias. LeBron has done it four times, while Robertson has done it eight times.

LeBron now has nine career postseason triple-doubles, which ties him with Wilt Chamberlain for fifth on the all-time list, according to Elias. Only Magic Johnson (30), Jason Kidd (11), Rajon Rondo (10) and Larry Bird (10) have more.

I hereby petition to have the MSB board renamed to the Lebron James Board.

Only reason Lebron was able to drive the lane that easy was b/c of the dumb arse decision to have have Hibbert on the bench during a crucial point in the game. That game winner was basically given to him.

Greatest flopper of all time.


Within the 5 minutes I turned it on, I saw Hansborough get wrestled to the ground and punched in the jaw.......Foul called on him. Battier to the line.

I saw 6'1 DJ Augustine absolutely pummel LeBron James and completely run him over like Augustine is a Union Pacific engineer. LBJ goes FLYING across the court.

I turned it for I rememebered why I don't watch that garbage.

As if Hibbert was somehow gonna stop that. The game was lost when LeBron was allowed to go to his left.

Incorrect. The defender was the reason he drove that easy. Hibbert would have only come into play at the basket and more than likely would have been called for a foul or still scored upon.

LeBron has the potential to be the GOAT, but he has to earn it over time. If he has at least 4 rings 5 years from now then he might have sustained this level of performance long enough to earn it, but this is a pointless conversation to have now.

This can't be true.

FoxMulder told me just this morning that LBJ was never clutch before last year.

Not mad. Just don't care about the NBA anymore. It's really hard to watch.

With the flopping and nick pick garbage fouls and obvious home team slant, it's not worth watching.

Impossible. ESPN says Kobe is clutch and Lebron isn't. Therefore, I will come on tigerdroppings and repeat what ESPN says all while saying I hate ESPN and don't watch it.

I don't know how anyone can say the refs are taking control for the Heat after George gets that call.
