LBJ threaded the needle with one of the most jaw-droppingly sweet passes I’ve ever seen executed. Even if you care nothing for basketball, you have to see this pass, simply because you won’t believe he actually got it past the defender and through to his man.
Go to this page and press “Highlights”. The awesomeness happens at 54 seconds.
While you’re at it, check out a sweet cross-over, spin-move with which Caron Butler destroys LeBron James, making him look like a cross-eyed matador who’s just walked off of a merry-go-round. Mess occurs at 25 seconds.
Hell, while you’re still at it, check out the game winning shot by James at 1:40. It’s an awesome shot and all, but I would’ve sworn he moved his pivot foot before taking it. In fact, it seems so obvious that I’m mildly shocked it wasn’ t called. Does anyone else share in my lukewarm shock?
