When LeBron James is running full speed, you can’t stop him but can hope to contain him. The Charlotte Hornets did neither in this highlight.
On this play, James received a mid-court pass from a Cleveland Cavaliers teammate with a head full of steam. It appeared the King would barrel his way at Marco Belinelli but LeBron sidestepped him with a quick crossover. Looking to prevent the bucket, Marco wrapped up James by hugging him and pulling down both arms. Somehow, LeBron was able to get his right wrist free and flipped up a rainbow above the rim. The ball magically dropped straight through the net for the potential and-1. The King reacted in kind, signaling “count it” with his finger before flexing for the crowd.
James rocked the Nike Zoom Soldier 10 for this impossible shot. The sneaker featured three straps on the midfoot and ankle area, providing lockdown despite the lack of laces. Large Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot allowed for bouncy steps and landings. A TPU shank is lodged between these units for added stability.
