It seems preposterous that LeBron James was considered someone who couldn't come through in the clutch, and yet that perception dogged him for much of the early stages of his career. It's funny how winning a ring changes the way people view past performances. If you look at the breadth of LeBron's career, though, you'll see a guy who has repeatedly delivered in huge playoff games. His legendary performance in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals—in which he scored 29 of the Cavaliers' final 30 points—and last season's Games 6 and 7 against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals proved once and for all he can be trusted on the big stage.
