Really, again, I am no Kobe Bryant lover, but that game (for the few of us who watched it, it was quite possibly the most beautiful game of offensive basketball EVER played or that ever will be played) just said so, so, so, so much.

When it came down to it in the biggest possible moment, playing for their country with their legacies all on the line, who took over the game?

LeBron was the best player in that game, hands down. Wade was unconscious.
But in the clutch, Kobe took that team on his shoulders.

Thus, regardless of stats or other outside analysis, Kobe IS the most clutch player in the game today.

i didnt realize the game was that close. i coulda sworn we won in a blowout.

Prince + filler for Kobe Bryant
To be honest the way Prince has played and with Kobes injury/age/mileage Im not sure I would do that deal either. Still Prince is more important and he wins the head to head battles with Kobe.

You have got to be kidding me. How long have you been watching basketball?

How about you guys take a look at some recent NBA title games and tell me how Clutch Kobe's been?

On the topic of the Olympic Gold Medal game - it depends on what your definition of "clutch" is.

If it is playing the best on the biggest stage then Wade was the most clutch player in that game.

If it is playing the best situational basketball (ie, 4th quarter) then Kobe was the most clutch.

on the topic of the olympic gold medal game it was the usa guards fault (kobe/wade/paul/deron) why the game was so close. Anyone who watched the game saw they were trying to go for steals especially kobe instead of keeping their man in front of them. coach mike talked about this
u mad?

Kobe Bryant is the most clutch player in the game. Brandon Roy proved he is clutch after what he did against us earlier in the season.

Wade clearly was in 2006. Now Pierce is.

This hasn't been a great era for clutch basketball though. Jordan hit 3 game-winners (@NY @CLE @PHO) in his 60-game comeback season for Washington to remind us how much more frequent they were when he was around.

Kobe showed the world how clutch he was in that gold medal game in the BIGGEST STAGE in the WORLD. Throughout the whole olympic run he kind of laid back, did his thing on defense and scored here and there. But when it looked like the gold was in jeopardy, he did what he does best and took over. Lebron can give all the speeches and tell the media he's the "leader" and what not. Wade can come off the bench and give that spark against the other teams scrubs. But when the game mattered most in crunch time, they all differed to Kobe to bring home the victory. There's no doubt about it that, that game was the highest exhibition of clutchness in the biggest stage possible. Four years before, a team that featured Lebron Wade and Melo came home with the Bronze. Two years after that in 2006 FIBA WBC under Coach K, Lebron, Wade, Melo and squad got eliminated by Greece in the semi finals not even placing. Kobe joins the team for the Olympiccs and he delivers the Gold. 8-)

How about Wade in the Olympics (in EVERY game) and most importantly the NBA Finals (and Conf. Finals), now thats what I call clutch! Only Jordan, Bird and Miller are more clutch than Wade.

Right now the Title of Mr Clutch rests on the head of Mr Playoff MVP Paul Pierce...until someone removes it. Mr Kobe Bryant has the chance to remove it but for now it is his. 8-)
