Ginobili is Mr Clutch according to NBA.Com

"Is Kobe Bryant really that more clutch than LeBron James or Dwyane Wade?"



Once again, we defined "clutch situations" as the last five minutes of a game with a scoring margin of five points or less. To measure how clutch a player is we used True Shooting Percentage (TS%), which accounts for trips to the free-throw line. And we looked at the last five seasons (not including the first week of the current season), 2004-05 through 2008-09, eliminating players who didn't attempt at least 180 field goals in clutch situations over that time. Here's the top 10...
Highest True Shooting Percentage in Clutch Situations, Last Five Seasons
Player FGM FGA FG% 3PM 3PA 3PT% FTM FTA FT% PTS TS%
Manu Ginobili 96 219 0.438 29 83 0.349 202 235 0.860 423 0.656
Mehmet Okur 113 240 0.471 47 115 0.409 113 133 0.850 386 0.647
Steve Nash 146 318 0.459 54 127 0.425 171 192 0.891 517 0.642
Amar'e Stoudemire 102 187 0.545 0 6 0.000 128 171 0.749 332 0.633
Chauncey Billups 133 318 0.418 52 142 0.366 219 245 0.894 537 0.631
Carlos Boozer 109 190 0.574 0 0 -- 75 99 0.758 293 0.627
Shawn Marion 126 230 0.548 11 37 0.297 68 88 0.773 331 0.616
Corey Maggette 84 204 0.412 10 42 0.238 189 215 0.879 367 0.615
Kyle Korver 68 180 0.378 35 112 0.313 124 141 0.879 295 0.609
Ming Yao 111 217 0.512 1 4 0.250 129 164 0.787 352 0.609
TS% = True Shooting Percentage = PTS/ (2*(FGA + (0.44*FTA)))
Not only is Ginobili the new Batman, he's also Mr. Clutch. His shooting percentage isn't that great, but he's at the top of the list because he gets to the line often and makes his free throws when he does. The same goes for Maggette.
You might notice that every player in the top 10 is in the Western Conference. You also might notice that there's no Bryant, James, Wade or Carmelo Anthony in the top 10. They're a little further down the list. James ranks 12th, Anthony ranks 22nd, Wade ranks 28th and Bryant ranks 38th.


NBA.com: Kobe, LeBron or D-Wade: Which one is most clutch?


So... what do you think? :drummer

No surprise here. same old same old. The Spurs are well under the radar again, but those who pay close attention will have already known this about Manu. Some of the others, Kobe et al, probably did not fare so well because they almost always end up with the ball. Another reason they seem to be more clutch, they have the ball all the time, so it seems they are making a lot of shots, which they are, but without takinng into account how many they are also missing in crunch time one is only considering half the equation.

Another time where the stats don't tell the whole story.

The Chinese surname is placed first in their language.
