LeBron gets a tough reverse layup to go for the and-1 finish against Knicks (VIDEO)

Feb 1, 2014, 11:00 PM EST

LeBron James pretty much showcases it all on this first half highlight from Saturday night’s game in New York.

Tim Hardaway Jr. is guarding James behind the three-point line, and his up-close approach is essentially forcing James to a drive. Challenge accepted, and the quickness with which James shakes his man before using his strength and athleticism to finish with a shot at the other side of the rim was truly impressive — even to James himself.

    I’d Still take LBJ over Durant. The Heat are going to pick up the intensity rrrreeeaaalll quick.

      Well, yeah… KD has only been playing like LBJ for a month. LBJ has been playing like LBJ for a decade.

    In the history of the game, there is no single player better at making acrobatic baskets to get the and-1 flop call.

      If he farts on the way up they might be aromatic baskets too.

    Fantastic play by lebron! Its amazing how many nba players dont understand how to get in a good defensive stance. Hardaway takes himself out of this play with awful positioning and balace. Did he think a hip thrust was going to work really? The nba “where acting like your playing aggressive defense happens.”

    please excuse my little rant….
