Watch LeBron James' crazy full-court shot
The Cleveland Cavaliers star swished a practice shot from over 90 feet away.
If we've learned anything over the last 12 years, it's that LeBron James can do basically anything he sets his mind to do on a basketball court. Apparently, that includes hurling a basketball the length of the court and not only hitting the basket at the other end, but getting nothing but net.
That's what James did during practice at Boston's TD Garden before the fourth game of the playoff series between James' Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. Up three games to none, James was in a loose mood, and according to Ohio.com, he was trying to get the ball in the net using a two-handed chest throw. Since that proved to be awkward even for LeBron, he told his teammates that he'd heave it with one hand from the back corner of the court. They made it interesting with a bet, which is why James said "Pay me my money" before the ball even went into the basket:
James' coach, former Maccabi Tel Aviv coach David Blatt, said of the phenomenon, "I guess for most people that’d be unbelievable. Seems to be par for the course (for James). Kind of amazing." King James' looseness was justified, by the way: The Cavs swept the series from the Celts, winning 101-93.
Blatt's right; James can pretty much do this at will, as seen in the below videos:
