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 ESPN.com. “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.”
