Now, this is a blocked shot.
LeBron James tallied a rejection rarely seen outside of video games Tuesday night, swatting a fast break layup attempt by the Pacers’ George Hill right out of the air as Hill tried to dump the ball into the hoop. James did more than just control the shot — he had volleyball-like spiking action going on.
Alas, Hill and the Pacers would get the last laugh, as James fouled out in the final minute and Indiana went on to win 99-92.
James has this one for this scrapbook forever, though.
