NBA Players Pick MJ And Kobe To Take Last Shot Over LeBron

Kobe_Bryant_Lebron_James_2012Current NBA players respect LeBron James—just not enough to give him the last shot over Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan.

ESPN The Magazine polled 26 anonymous active NBA players, none of whom would want LeBron taking the last shot if Kobe and Jordan were on the floor. Twenty-three of the players polled said they would want His Airness to bomb away, while three rolled with the Black Mamba.

“That’s like ranking the shortest giant,” an Eastern Conference guard said, per “I’d want the ball in LeBron’s hands at the end of the game, but I’d want him to pass to Kobe or Jordan for the last shot. And don’t forget, LeBron is not a great free-throw shooter, either.”
