LeBron James’ impressive drive, reverse slam (VIDEO)

May 27, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

Is there any other player in the game who could make that play?

LeBron James was dominant on Memorial Day, lifting the Heat to a 3-1 series lead over the Pacers. No doubt Chris Bosh’s arrival helped and Dwyane Wade‘s continued strong play is key, but LeBron was a force of nature in Game 4.

It showed on this one, which might be the signature play of this series. He drove right past George Hill, split the help and threw down the reverse.

Note to Paul George and David West: The reason the Heat got to the free throw line so many more times is they attacked the paint like this all night long, while you guys settled. The aggressors get the calls in the NBA and that was Miami Monday night.

    I believe there was an article on this already?

      Different writer, but yeah same article. They don’t spell or proof much here.. so communicating stories to avoid duplicates probably doesn’t happen either.

    Nice play, but to answer the author’s question, there has to be at least 30 players in the league who could make this play no? Wasn’t even a true reverse dunk, more of a side throw down. Again, nice play, don’t want to detract from it, but didn’t make my jaw drop or anything.

      I think the writer was referring to LeBron’s strength: there was a reverse (side) dunk AND a foul – where George Hill grabbed LeBron’s shoulder. Most players aren’t strong enough to take that grab and finish the reverse dunk.

        That’s fair. Lebron is a beast no doubt.
        Still think Blake Griffin and some others could do it, it wasn’t that hard of a foul after all, but certainly not many guys that make that play with that ferocity.

        I agree with you – there are other players that can dunk through a foul.
