LeBron James completes behind-the-back, between-the-legs pass

By Alex Butler

Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James completed one of the most ridiculous passes that you will see in a win against the Orlando Magic.

The Cavaliers departed from Quieken Loans Arena with a narrow 104-103 triumph, ending a four-game losing skid.


James' most brilliant act came in the first quarter. Cavaliers sharpshooter Kyle Korver had the ball at the top of the 3-point arc with about 2:11 remaining in the opening frame. Korver fired in a pass to James, which bounced off of his hands. The ball bounced off of several defenders' hands before James got it back.

He snatched up the loose ball and fired it behind his back while facing away from the hoop. The pass bounced between Aaron Gordon's legs and right into Dwyane Wade's hands for an easy lay in. Cleveland took a 30-16 lead on the made basket.

Wade was smiling at the ridiculousness of the pass, before he made the shot. He pointed at his longtime friend after making the hoop.

LeBron also did this.

James scored 16 points and had six assists and five rebounds in the win. Isaiah Thomas scored a game-high 21 points for the Cavaliers, while Wade splashed in 11 points. James is now 25 points shy of 30,000 points for his career.


"Man was I garbage tonight!!!! Thank God for teammates. Appreciate it fellas," James tweeted after the game.
