Watch LeBron James’ ridiculous wrap-around baseline pass

Damn.

Everyone wants to compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan, and regarding legacy that has some logic as Jordan is the legacy benchmark. But on the court, LeBron and Jordan are different styles of players — LeBron is far more Magic Johnson, or maybe Oscar Robertson (before my time, but a guy who could do everything on the court).

This pass is a reminder LeBron has a ridiculous court vision and is one of the best passers in the game today. It’s not just the pass it’s the anticipation — look at where Mike Dunleavy is when LeBron starts that pass, he’s 12 feet from the spot but he’s started his move. LeBron knew what was coming and it’s brilliant.

When the Cavs are moving the ball they are savage.
