In an interview with ESPN radio new Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown said if given the choice he would choose Kobe Bryant over Lebron James to take the last second shot.

Totally agree. I might even take Ray Allen and Derrick Rose over LeBron. You?

Was that a serious question? On one hand you have a proven winner and clutch performer while on the other you have one of the most overrated players and worst closers in the history of the game. On top of that Brown is his coach. This had to be a joke. There are probably 50 players I'd rather have taking the last second shot for me before Lebron.

Well no shit

And if they would have asked him a few years ago he would have picked lebron and if next year he goes to coach the heat and they ask him he will say lebron

And if the following year he goes to OKC and they give him a choice he will say Durant

Truth be told, I'd probably rather have Lebron taking the last shot, granted he was actually aggressive. Too bad he never wants it or ends up taking a terrible jump shot.

At least with Kobe's terrible jump shots, I feel like they have a chance of going in.

Do you really think he'd say he preferred someone other than Kobe?

This is pointless

Statistically Kobe has been pretty terrible himself on last shots. I'd take Melo :pimp:

I thought it was a hair below league average, which is not "pretty terrible". The last shot is a brutal possession for anybody. There is a reason that the last shot is made somewhere in the ballpark of 33%.

Why the hell would he pick someone off his own team? Man would pick Steve Blake before LBJ.

Kobe is nowhere near as clutch as most believe he is

What else is he supposed to say?

Kobe
Dirk
Durant

LEbron = not clutch

Because not only is Kobe not better than Lebron, Kobe is below average in that exact situation?
