LeBron James chased down an offensive rebound and then immediately dribbled into the corner. He was practically pulling up for the shot while dribbling out with his back to the basket. With Boris Diaw closing, LeBron even backpedaled into the crowd after fading away to gain a little extra space.
Of course, he swished the shot.
Few can make that play – from the rebound to the shot – and I’m not sure anyone else can make it look so easy.
