Mario Chalmers steal, backwards pass leads to LeBron James windmill (VIDEO)

Dec 28, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

LeBron James was cherry picking. Mario Chalmers was hustling.

Chalmers chased down Rudy Gay from behind, made the steal then the fast over-the-head pass back to the cherry picking LeBron James.

Which led to one heck of a windmill dunk.

LeBron had 33 points but the Kings got the win 108-103.

    Don’t want to sound like a hater, but he traveled when he caught the ball and started walking towards the hoop. In a normal game that get whistled, but not in the NBA.

      dunno why so many thumbs down. He clearly takes 2 steps before he puts the ball on the floor. He can’t then dribble, and take 2 more steps.

      With that logic, you could feed a big man at the top of the key, he takes 2 steps towards the rim, dribbles once, and takes 2 more, how on earth do you stop that guy from a free dunk every time? Same with any decent wing on the baseline.

      Even in a little league game that would of been called

        Yeah man, whatever. Its the NBA, clear travels don’t get called for whatever reason. I know that in Middle School games they call that stuff all the time…

    What I want to know is, why was he that far down court in a close game? I mean, I’m glad he was… that was awesome.. but that wasn’t cherry picking. That was apple picking at the farms down south, since he was already out of state by the time the play started.

    Why was Lebron so slow getting back on defense? It’s almost as if he knew Chalmers would get the steal and give him a pass for an easy dunk.

    So sick.

    It’s pretty cool that this is how he surpassed Bird on the all-time scoring list.
