08:24 AM ET 02.27 | When yet another moment of truth arrived, LeBron James passed. Twice. James passed on two chances to take the potential game-winning shot in Sunday night's All-Star Game, conjuring memories of last year's NBA Finals when he played brilliantly -- except in crunch time. ... With the East trailing by two, James passed to the Nets' Deron Williams, who came off a double screen and missed an open 3-pointer. The East controlled the rebound and the ball eventually found James again. But with Bryant in his defensive stance and anticipating James would challenge him, the Heat superstar made a foolish decision to throw a crosscourt pass through traffic that was intercepted by Blake Griffin.

Not only does he suck at the end of a game that matters, he sucks at the end of a game that doesn't matter.

At least he's consistent. And sucks.

Did I mention that he sucks? Just in case I forgot to, he sucks.

The collective suckitude of the working girls in Brazil, Mexico, NYC and LA can't compete with this guy.

Yeah? We're seriously going to start slamming the guy for ASG performances?

It isn't as much as for the ASG game per se, it's kinda piling on at this point.

Its not fair to LBJ, he missed a 3, so did D.Williams. He had a TO, Kobe and Griffin missed key free throws too.

Guess LBJ "forgot" to take his talents to the ASG.

Or maybe he brought his talent. I'm not sure anymore.

He may not be "clutch" but he's still the best ball player in the NBA.

If "clutch" dictated supreme skills, we'd all be sucking Robert Horry's wang.

Perhaps he should play in college, those games are only 40 minutes, those last 8 seem to give him a problem.
