Chris Bosh Says He'd Take Dwyane Wade Over LeBron James In The Clutch

Friday January 13th, 2012

Chris Bosh said that he’d choose Dwyane Wade over Lebron James if the game was on the line, according to an exclusive interview with GQ.

GQ: Quick hypothetical, toes aside: Let’s say the game was tied. 10 seconds left. You had 30 points, LeBron’s got 30, and Wade’s got 30. You got the same amount of rebounds, same amount of assists—having the same great game. Who takes the shot at the end to either win or lose the game.

Chris Bosh: [immediately] Dwyane.

GQ: Why?

Chris Bosh: Because of his success in the past, given what he’s done. He’s a champ. He’s an MVP, and he’s hit a bunch of last-second shots. That’s the time you have to put pride aside a little bit, and do what’s best for the team. He’s quickest, and he’s gonna get a shot off. He relishes those moments.

James currently leads the 8-3 Heat in scoring with 29 points per contest. Despite his tremendous regular season totals throughout his career, however, James has earned a stigma for being a poor clutch player. Wade on the other hand played a major role in helping the Miami Heat win the 2006 NBA championship.
