Is there anything LeBron James can’t do? His alley-oop to himself off the backboard should go down in the pantheon of greatest Finals plays.
LeBron James is on a mission to get his Cleveland Cavaliers back into this series, even if it means throwing the greatest self alley-oop the basketball world has ever seen.
This isn’t an exaggeration if that’s what you’re wondering. It’ s real to all those who witnessed it. This was one of those plays where you become instantly jealous at the folks who ponied up hundreds and hundreds of dollarts to get into Quicken Loans Arena for Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals.
It was powerful, it was vicious, and it was a play that no one, from the pros covering the game to the regular joe in the nosebleed section, will ever forget as long as they live.
Again, this isn’t an exaggeration, this is the truth of the matter. That LeBron self-alley-oop only confirms that we are all witnesses to one of the best players we have ever seen and will, more than likely, never see again.
The proof is in the Twitter responses after the play. Only King James can spur this type of explosive response on one of the greatest platforms ever created.
And that’s just the start.
This reminds us of the Tracy McGrady self-ally-oop he did during the NBA All-Star Game many moons ago. While that one was spectacular in its own right, it doesn’t nearly compare to the one we just witnessed.
As the tweet stated above, LeBron James decided to grab some popcorn and kick it on the couch of his Akron home, and he let King James come to the arena instead. So far, that’s the player the Golden State Warriors are seeing tonight, which includes a rare appearance from a non-Henny J.R. Smith.
So, to all the haters, stop the hate and appreciate the greatness.
