LeBron James flexes muscles after Tim Hardaway Jr attempts to stop him (GIF)

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James could probably wear New York Knicks rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. as a backpack and he almost did during their Sunday afternoon tilt.

With the Knicks nursing an eight point lead in the first quarter, James had a near breakaway with only Hardaway Jr. in his way to prevent a basket. Hardaway knew he had no choice to block James’ shot as he’d become a poster, so he opted to wrap his arms around him in effort to prevent a shot.

Only problem? The overly powerful James didn’t seem bothered at all, putting up the shot off the glass as Hardaway hung on for dear life.

Amazingly, the shot actually went in and Lebron, unable to contain himself, started flexing his muscles as he walked around the court with a rye smile.

Hardaway Jr. on the other hand was completely perplexed that James was able to get the shot up, let alone convert the attempt.

Impressive stuff.

Maybe next time Hardaway Jr. will throw down banana peels or something like he’s in a real-life version of Mario Kart.
