Stephen A.: LeBron didn't choke in overtime against Spurs | First Take

  • Ajoutée 23 oct. 2018
  • Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman disagree whether LeBron James choked in overtime against the San Antonio Spurs Monday when he missed key free throws and a potential game-winning shot in overtime for the Los Angeles Lakers. Stephen A. agrees that LeBron isn't a great clutch free throw shooter and Max argues that LeBron should be better.

    Steven A made a strong point. If a 73% free throw shooter misses. Well DUH he's a 73% FT shooter. If he's 88-90% this may be a chock situation. Lebron scores 3 point baskets to win games all the time. Max is getting more like Skip Bayless everyday.

    Ill just say I told everyone so. he’s in a tougher conference this isn’t the east and he doesn’t any all stars on his team. he’s a great player but he can’t do this on his own. He lost to Golden state they made it look pretty damn easy what do you think the western conference is going to do you young inexperienced team. Look at the bright side he can start working on his retirement he’s where he wanted to be Hollywood

    Max Kellerman talking trash. LBJ didn't choke. He missed. You don't choke if you take the shot you would take normally with the game on the line. Learn the right vernacular.

  • Jeff Zaun

    The math is easy. If he's a 75% free-throw shooter the chances of him missing 2 in a row are (1-.75)*(1-.75) = 0.0625, Happens about once out of every 16 times. 4 times in a row (1-.75)^4 = .004, which is about once every 250 times. He choked, or he was having an off night. Is my math incorrect?

    thank you stephen a max kellerman talking out of his ass again i s2g. one thing they didn't even mention is that lebron missed those ft's while they were a point up, meaning if they had got a stop they would have won the damn game. you guys are acting as if its inevitable for the spurs to make a bucket after his missed ft's. if they hadn't made a shot, we would just be talking about how lebron needs to work on his free throws and how he isn't reliable at the line at the end of the game, which is a damn fact.

    Lebron is the only person i know in sports that has a losing record in the finals and some of his fans still has the audacity to call him the "GOAT". Name another player in any other sport thats considered the "GOAT" that has a losing record . Ill wait and dont bring up "mj 1-9 without pippen" jordan was playing the championship celtics and pistons with a sorry ass team. But again name a "GOAT" with a losing record in any other sport 😂

    (((Mediums/Witches are an abomination to God. The reality is that people are not talking to their dead relatives but to DEMONS!!! Which is an abomination in God's sight to consult with witches and to contact the DEAD!!!))) ……..
    When we go against God’s will and we think we are talking to our dead relatives that have passed on and this is not the case. This is called Necromancy.
    (Necromancy): The suppose practice of communicating with the dead, which states in Deuteronomy 18:12 it is an abomination unto the Lord. He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. (Mark 12:27).
    As it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Demonic spirits love to disguise themselves as our loved ones. The demons love to appear as little children. People are either taken to the pit by Demons or taken by Gods Holy angels right after we pass on. Its either we love Jesus and repent of our sins and follow his commandments, (John 14:21), or we don't and find ourselves in Hell one day, because of our free will our father has given us.
    Definition of: {Familiar Spirit}: A Demon supposedly attending and obeying a witch, often said to assume the form of an animal. (The Lord said to Moses): Do not turn to Mediums that have familiar spirits or Wizards to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 19:31).
    I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums/Spiritualists who have familiar spirits and wizards. To go whoring after them by following them. (Leviticus 20:6). A man or women who is a medium and has a Familiar spirit and is among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads. (Leviticus 20:27).
    Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritualist/Wizard or who consults the dead/ Familiar Spirits. Anyone who does these things is an Abomination to the Lord. And because of these Abomination practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the Lord your God. (Deuteronomy 18:10-13).
    Furthermore, Josiah got rid of the mediums who consult familiar spirits, and households Gods, the idols and all the other Abomination things seen in Judah and Jerusalem. (2 Kings 23:24).
    He sacrificed his sons in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced sorcery, divination and witchcraft, and consulted mediums with familiar spirits. He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, provoking him to anger. (2 Chronicles 33:6).
    When men tell you to consult mediums with familiar spirits, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? (Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?) (Isaiah 8:19).
    You shall be brought down, you shall speak out of the ground; you speech shall be low, out of the dust; your voice shall be like the medium’s, out of the ground; and your speech shall whisper out of the dust. (Isaiah 29:4).
    (Voice…like a medium’s refers to the forbidden, deceptive “voices” for which the medium supposedly served as a channel). Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. (Divination).
    This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, "In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to come out of her!" At that moment the spirit left her.
    When the owners of the slave girl realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the market place to face authorities. (Acts 16:16-19).
    He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced sorcery and divination and consulted familiar spirits and Wizards/mediums. He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, provoking him to anger. (2 Kings 21:6).
    The spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come though hypocritical liars, who conscience have been seared as with a hot iron. (1 Timothy 4:1-2).
    I used to watch television shows on mediums, but now I know what the bible says about people like these. We need to pray for them that they stop being a mouth piece for Satan and his demons. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the father is not in him (1 John 2:15).
    We need to get this information out and stop defiling ourselves and pray for people who consult with familiar spirits and come back to the Lord Almighty and seek the truth from him.
    Praise Jesus (Yeshua) Who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and the Alpha and the Omega. Amen!

    Only because it was a regular season game is why. If this would have happened during a playoff game, ai gaurantee you he would have said he choked lol. The only reason he said he didn't is because it's a regular season game. During the regular season, Stephen A gives LeBron a pass on everything. But during the post season, one tiny slip up on the team, and it's All LeBron's fault. Lol.
