So excited about the Lakers matchup against the Heat tonight on TNT. I mean who wouldn’t be excited to see what Ernie, Kenny, Charles and Shaq have to say..Seriously everyone is ready for the Kobe versus Lebron matchup tonight. Which brings me to my next question, ” who is better in the 4th Lebron or Kobe?” Who would you take in the 4th quarter?
Just from watching the different games and watching Kobe and Lebron in the 4th quarter of games there is really not that huge of a difference in who closes better. In watching old game tapes and sportscasters dissect both their games in the 4th you see they both take bad shots at key moments.The majority of the time they miss the shots and complain of phantom fouls.
Kobe probably gets the vote of best closer by many because he has taken more critical shots in the 4th then Lebron. It is a fact Lebron tends to disappear into oblivion in the 4th quarter more than once or twice in a game. Kobe will never shy away in the 4th quarter even if it means shooting one or two air balls. This is one reason why many view Kobe as the best closer because he will never ever fade away into oblivion in the 4th. He lives to take the last basket or critical shot and more than Lebron has made them. So who would I go to in the 4th. I wouldn’t go with Kobe or Lebron.
I would have to go with three people and one I would have to bring out of retirement. First Big Shot Bill Chauncey Billups, second Big Shot Fish Derrick Fisher, third and coming out of retirement Big Shot Rob or Big Shot Bob Robert Horry.These guys have sent me to bed upset a many of nights. Their shots killing my hopes of my team winning that night. Personally these three guys have crushed my hopes more than Lebron or Kobe in the 4th quarter. So yes I’m just saying that’s who I would take in the 4th. How about you?
