This year's playoffs featured a long list of choke artists.
Here are the All NBA Choke 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team.
All NBA Choke 1st team:
PG Jason Kidd-arguably the most overrated point guard in the NBA. He gets all this hype, but when it's time to put up or shut up, he shoots a woeful 30% from the field. I'm sure Mark Cuban wishes he would have kept Devin Harris.
SG Vince Carter aka V-insanity-First, he choked in the 2000 NBA playoffs. He got his ass handed to him by an injury prone, much less hyped Larry Johnson, near the end of his career. Then, he chokes against the 76ers, missing a potential series winning jump shot, in the 2001 playoffs. Then, he choked in the 2005 playoffs, shooting 36% for an entire series against the Heat. Then, he choked in the 2007 series against the Cavs, completely folding after an impressive win over his former team. Then, he choked in the 2010 playoffs, against the Bobcats, and missed two free throws in game 2 of the Magic-Celtics series.
SF Lechoke James- People are on his dick like he birthed them. He's not even all that. Deshawn Stevenson was right, when he said Brick James was overrated. People hype him up 20X more than Dwyane Wade, 10x more than Kobe Bryant, and he isn't even on the level of either of those guys. Lechoke could be argued to not even be as good as Carmelo Anthony. It is very questionable if James could have made the 2009 conference finals, in the West, like Anthony did.
PF Amare Stoudemire- Stoudemire is always talking s#!t. First, he says "Are you serious. Ask Bosh that question. No doubt about it, I'm better than Bosh."
Then, he talks about how he used to dominate Gasol in Memphis, but can't even get more than 4 rebounds a game, and is about to get swept.
C Jermaine O'Neal- Wow, did he choke. He had all that hype in Indiana, and he even had hype in Miami, but he proved to be a total bust. 4 points, 20% fg, 5.5 rebounds, lots of bricks and airballs, and zero heart.
