Always known as a physical force, LeBron James used his skill and touch for this game-winning highlight.
On this play, James had the ball near the mid-court line with 14 seconds left in the game. The scoreboard read 88-88, as LeBron raised his hand for the play call. Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson set a solid screen with just over 4 seconds remaining. With Nets big man Brook Lopez switched on him, the King dribbled right before floating a sweeping shot. The ball hit back iron and in with 1 second remaining. Jarrett Jack’s last second heave with no timeouts didn’t fall. After that clank, you can see LeBron kick his leg back in joy after adding another clutch moment to his highlight reel.
The sneakers that James rocked for this game-winner was the Nike LeBron 13. This thirteenth LeBron sneaker features a Hyperposite upper. This material is a variation of Foamposite, providing a durable wrap that molds to your feet. Outside of the zoned Hyperposite on the collar, the rest of the upper consists of a breathable mesh. Running and landing is cushioned by Hex Zoom units carried over from the LeBron 12. These units provide a bounce to the wearer’s step.
