Not many players can say they’ve stopped LeBron James when he’s decided to put his head down and drive to the basket. Kyle Lowry can now say he’s one of those people…sort of. James drives around his man and gets ready to meet Toronto Raptors big man, Jonas Valanciunas, at the rim. On his way there though his shot attempt gets swatted out of his hands by a helping Lowry.

Do not let the ease of this dunk fool you. Lowry has to get way up there to block James shot mid shooting motion, and he has to add a lot of strength to stop one of the strongest players in the league. Usually when LeBron drives players get out of the way, but Lowry chose to get right in the fray of things and get a highlight out of it. Props to him.
