Leading the league in assists wasn’t enough for LeBron James. The King had to go showtime on the Pacers on this play.
Internet legend Alex Caruso saw James cut to the hoop and lasered a pass his way. James took one power dribble before taking liftoff close to the rim. Indiana Center Myles Turner drifted off his man to challenge James, leading LeBron to go no-look on a behind-the-head pass to Dwight Howard for the easy two-handed flush.
The sneaker James wore for this rejection were the Nike LeBron 17. This sneaker features a heel Air unit; the largest bag ever seen on a basketball shoe, providing maximum impact protection. The two large volume Zoom units in the forefoot for extra responsiveness. Knitposite graces the upper, with heat-molding creating the scaly look. As a result of the heat, the upper features more structure and durability.
LeBron rocked a purple and gold player edition for this moment, which is not currently available for sale.
