LeBron James blocks George Hill after hiding near sideline

May 28, 2013, 10:49 PM EDT

No fastbreak is safe with LeBron James on the court.

George Hill surely thought he had a sure-fire two point as he rose to the rim without LeBron directly behind him. In theory, that scenario would eliminate the possibility of LeBron making one of his signature chase-down blocks.

But LeBron hid near the sideline, essentially baiting Hill into attempting the layup, and actually raced in front of Hill to get this block. In fairness to Hill, most players can’t cover that much ground between the sideline and the hoop so quickly – let alone elevate to block the shot.

LeBron, as we well know, is not most players.

    Awesome block. Best help/off ball defender in the league, by far I think.

      Nice block. But he fouled Hill afterwards by hitting him on the face.

    That “block” was *very* close to goaltending. In fact, when he hit it I don’t think the ball was still on its way up.

    An amazing block by the best player in the world. The petty people who continually criticize LeBron James need to get a life.
