The article is fundamentally wrong imo. From strictly talent point of view there are several vastly more talented players. Otoh, he is probably the most athletically gifted player (along with Griffin and few other guys).
Who are the several vastly more talented players than Lebron?

But when Kobe had the foot speed, yes, he was the clutchest player.
Kobe is no better or no worse than anyother player in the clutch. He has just becuase of his selfishness been in more situations. And has probably failed more in the clutch as well.

This year playoff it's Durant who was making key plays down the stretch, and Durant defense is underrrated.

Commentators from ESPN and TNT have criticize for Lebron's inability to close the game. I rather have Wade takes the last shot.
What about 07 Lebron when he destroyed the pistons? Scored 29 of the last 30 points for the Cavs.
