Video: Wade steals the game away from Kobe, LeBron seals it

This was the play of the game in the Heat/Lakers showdown.

Tied 88-88 with a minute and a half to go, Kobe Bryant tries to drive left on Dwyane Wade from the top of the key (triangle offense be damned the Lakers go isolation) and Wade strips the ball. Then after chasing it down he passes ahead to LeBron, who dunks home what would be a lead the Heat would not surrender.

It’s a play that pretty much sums up how this game went in crunch time.

    WOAH, the camera man at the 30 second mark, when you see LeBron tying his shoes, is that the same guy that Rodman kicked 14 or so years ago?

      Maybe not. You see a clear shot of the guys face if you pause it at 31 secs.

      Here’s a pic of the dude Rodman kicked:
