NBA Players Defend LeBron James' Decision To Pass The Ball To Danny Green During Last Seconds

The last seconds of Game 5 of the NBA Finals was incredible. The Los Angeles Lakers missed a big chance to win the game when LeBron James decided to pass the ball to Danny Green, who was open, but Danny missed the shot, leaving the door open for the Heat to win the game. After the match finished, everybody had something to say about those last plays, where LeBron could have done a little more.

The NBA community reacted to those seconds, with some saying he did the right thing by passing the ball to Green and others believe he should have taken care of things and try to win the game all by himself.

Some players explained that it's normal to miss shots and that LeBron made the right decision as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

Former NBA player Jay Williams claimed LeBron had to take that shot instead of passing the ball and Kendrick Perkins replied as only he knows.

Of course, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe had a couple of things to say about this, too, expressing different opinions on what LeBron should have done.

This is the NBA Finals, people will always try to impose their opinion on what should have happened on the court. That play was very controversial and you see that not everybody was convinced the right decisions were made. In the end, the Heat won the game, 111-108 and we'll have Game 6 on Sunday.
