Chris Broussard: “It was the strangest master piece by LeBron James... There were a lot of stretches where he just wasn’t active. He was on the boards throughout the game with 20 rebounds but he went long stretches where he didn’t score. He didn’t score his first bucket until 33 seconds left in the first quarter. Honestly, I thought he was gassed because he was letting his teammates do most of the work. When they needed it he came through, the narrative of him not being clutch needs to be put to bed. There was pressure for LeBron and he is 7 for 12 from the field in the last second of playoff games in his career.”
Rob Parker: “Chris Broussard is the biggest prisoner of the moment. You’re up 2-1 in the series, there was no pressure there, you can’t put the narrative to rest yet, it’s just one game! If you look at the facts, during the Lakers tenure, he is 3 for 29 at end of games to tie or take the lead. That right there should not put the narrative away.”

Tonight on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker the guys get in a heated debate regarding the narrative of LeBron James not being clutch after his game winning performance last night against the Grizzlies. Chris believes that the narrative of LeBron not being clutch needs to get put to bed but Rob fires back not buying the hype of LeBron’s performance. The two go back and forth comparing current and past NBA players.
