LeBron James has circus layup against Lakers (GIF)

LeBron James is going to be the deterring factor in whether or not the Miami Heat win a majority of their games. Not only is he the best player in the NBA, he’s the best player in the NBA at getting his team momentum in big games. The Lakers aren’t as powerful as they used to be, but they’re still a tough matchup and any help LeBron can supply is much appreciated.

He’s supplying that help on Thursday night, as he was responsible for a circus layup that saw him torch a slew of Lakers in the paint.



That’s the LeBron James we’ve come to love and it will always be amazing to watch him do the things he does like this.
