Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has received criticism during his career for disappearing in crucial moments of the game. Some analysts, like Skip Bayless, point at Game 6 of 2013 NBA Finals and Ray Allen’s corner three-pointer as an example. Lakers’ sharpshooter Danny Green disagrees.

“He’s a clutch guy. He shows up when the lights are the brightest,” Green, who was part of the San Antonio Spurs teams that faced LeBron’s Heat in 2012 and 2013 NBA Finals, said, per Ryan Ward.

LeBron is expected to have another opportunity to display his clutch game this season, as the Lakers are widely expected to go all the way to the NBA Finals.
