It was surely a false myth. Just watch the last three sets and tell me if McEnroe looked like he was chocking.
The chocking-thing is just a way to insult your opponent's results. Every victory is a deserved one. Especially if it was an epic victory with some fantastic tennis, such as the 1984 RG final, my favourite match of the 1981-1990 decade.
