Luckily for us, Basketball-Reference.com recently launched their “Shot Finder” which claims to track every shot from the 2000-01 season through to this season — up to the February 28 games, as of this writing. The table below shows the results of my Shot Finder query with the following criteria: regular season or playoffs, fourth quarter or overtime, 0:05 or less remaining, shot to tie or to take the lead. The Shot Finder doesn’t let you query across multiple seasons, so I did it for this season and the previous two seasons and added up the numbers for 35 of the most prominent players in terms of overall fame/ability or their tendency to take these shots. If you think I excluded a worthy player, feel free to look him up yourself.

As you can see, I sorted the results by field goals made. Part of me wants to dismiss the meaning behind these numbers because of the sample size — would you be comfortable making an absolute judgement on a player’s shooting skill based on 23 or fewer field goal attempts? But when it comes right down to it, these numbers do absolutely nothing to change Kobe’s and LeBron’s reputations.


Some surprising numbers.

Since 00-01
Kobe: 36-133 - 27%
LeBron: 19-86 - 22%

Sorry, it was past 3 seasons, I got confused because it say 00-01 at one point in the article. Still, it proves that Kobe Bryant is still clutch.

Still 0-11 is horrible.

I really wish writers like these would be on ESPN, because Hollinger pretty much convinced everyone Kobe Bryant is not clutch, and that could be further from the truth.

Oh that makes sense then. Kobe is pretty good when it comes to last 5 seconds. Last 2 minutes would be a totally different list though.

RUdy Gay is one of the clutchest players in the NBA. SO unnoticed. Same with Monta.

Kobe Bryant was better in:
03-04
07-08
08-09
09-10
11-12

Lebron James was better in:
04-05
05-06
06-07
10-11

This is going with 2 minutes to go or less in 4rth quarter or Over time

Kobe Bryant is the surprising leader.

Player Makes Attempts FG% Carmelo Anthony 21 44 47.7 Chris Paul 14 31 45.2 Shawn Marion 12 30 40 Brandon Roy 12 30 40 Hedo Turkoglu 12 30 40 Rashard Lewis 18 46 39.1 Glenn Robinson 14 36 38.9 Deron Williams 14 36 38.9 Mike Bibby 15 39 38.5 Dirk Nowitzki 25 65 38.5 Jalen Rose 12 32 37.5 Tim Duncan 23 62 37.1 Eddie Jones 13 36 36.1 Karl Malone 11 31 35.5 Ben Gordon 17 49 34.7 Chris Webber 18 52 34.6 Raymond Felton 12 36 33.3 LeBron James 23 69 33.3 Ray Allen 23 70 32.9 Gilbert Arenas 13 40 32.5 Vince Carter 31 96 32.3 Steve Francis 14 44 31.8 Damon Stoudamire 12 38 31.6 Nick Van Exel 16 51 31.4 Kobe Bryant 36 115 31.3 Jason Terry 14 45 31.1 Allen Iverson 21 68 30.9 Kevin Garnett 22 72 30.6 Ron Artest 9 30 30 Allan Houston 12 41 29.3 Entire league 2038 6861 29.7


I don't know what your point is, since since they have been both in the league, Kobe Bryant is better at scoring in the last 2 minutes (As it shows) and he is better at game winning shots with 5 seconds or less left. Even with 24 seconds, Lebron is 1 percent better. With 2 minutes left, Kobe has not only scored more, but also done it more efficently.

I'm just saying "clutch" can be viewed differently upon different standards of measurement... Your list makes Kobe look better in the clutch whereas mine makes LeBron and MANY other looks better in the clutch. That's all that my point is.

I think both are clutch.
IMO, Kobe Bryant is the better clutch scorer and Lebron James is the better Clutch Play Maker.
