Here is what we think about LeBron James’ Game 1 buzzer-beating game-winning hyphen-inducing layup:

Whoa. What a shot. What. A. Shot. This guy is a monster. Why didn’t Frank Vogel have Roy Hibbert in after LeBron had just made a layup at the rim on the Heat’s previous possession because he could easily get to the rim due to a lack of a Pacers rim-protector? That’s weird, I definitely would have left him in. Remember when the biggest debate in basketball was whether or not LeBron is clutch? That was crazy. I like Fun Dip, particularly the red cherry pouch.

Here is what LeBron James thinks of his Game 1 buzzer-beating game-winning hyphen-inducing layup, courtesy of Fox Sports Florida:

“I mean, I made a layup,’’ James said. “It’s not like I made something halfcourt. I made a layup. I’ve been doing that since I was 8 years old.’’

Yeah, well I made a layup before I was eight years old, so who’s a four-time MVP who is guaranteed to be a first ballot Hall of Famer now? Oh, still LeBron James. Seems about right. Never mind.

  1. Hello guys,
    can you help me and explain something? I didn’t feel good about the Lebrons buzzer beater because to me it was a travel. What I mean is that he first took a WHOLE STEP, and then started dribbling, Wasn’t it a travel? Maybe cause Im from Europe I feel like this cause in FIBA rules your’e not allowed to do this. So is this sort of thing legal in the NBA?
    Anyway, keep up with the podcast and with the blog, great job!

  2. that was a travel. picked up pivot foot way before dribbling. after that it was ok.

  3. But why can’t you just answer?

  4. Thanks, flegman.

  5. Section XIII—Traveling “In starting a dribble after (1) receiving the ball while standing still, or (2) coming to a legal stop, the ball must be out of the player’s hand before the pivot foot is raised off the floor.” Obviously lebron came to legal stop and raised pivot before the dribble
