Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James hit a three-pointer from his court side seat at the Summer League in Las Vegas.
Everyone knows that LeBron James is the greatest basketball player on the planet, he reminds us repeatedly. In the NBA Finals just a month ago he led both teams in points, rebounds and assists and collected a large share of NBA Final MVP votes despite being on the losing team.
Even picked up an ESPY for that losing championship performance.
But that doesn’t mean that James isn’t finding new ways to impress us on a regular basis. James went to the Las Vegas Summer League to watch his Cavaliers team play the Minnesota Timberwolves.
During a break in play James got his hands on a basketball, dribbled it a bit and then launched a shot while sitting down.
And he made it….. hitting nothing but net.
An interesting note to think about, when James was a rookie the Las Vegas Summer League didn’t exist. Summer leagues were spread all over and now they’ve organized everything in the desert and created some must watch action for basketball fans in the summer.
I don’t know if you noticed in that video either, but LeBron James was also rocking a custom Cleveland Indians jersey that had “King James” on the back.
James of course has been known to be somewhat of a fair weather fan, and in his younger years caught some heat for wearing a New York Yankees hat to a Indians game in Cleveland.
