Recently, he's passed it off and more often than not it was the correct pass and won the game for the team (ignoring the shots he made against Charlotte and Houston). So since he's been doing it recently, you say "he always passes up the shot", just like when he failed in the clutch in those three games in a row, people say "he's not clutch". Carmelo is more clutch than them both-- It's nice that you grouped them together but Wade and Melo aren't even in the same clutch class. That being said, Carmelo is not a better player than either of them. Player: Bron Wade Melo Clutch: Melo Wade Bron It's not the only thing that defines a player, even if it is key.
