LeBron gets way up for the alley-oop finish against Pistons (VIDEO)

Feb 3, 2014, 9:31 PM EST

This play essentially exemplifies the defensive goal of the Miami Heat, which is to create live-ball turnovers that result in easy points in transition for the team’s biggest stars, who usually finish in spectacular fashion.

LeBron James delivered on this play from the first half of Monday night’s game against the Pistons, where he got way up to handle the alley-oop pass from Mario Chalmers before throwing it down with some force.

    Lebron is such a beast. Still would take him over Durant.
