Dwyane Wade and Lebron James do something absurd

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade connect on a 90-foot baseline to baseline alley-oop against the Pacers
Posted by Matt Moore

See, this is what we expected when LeBron James joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami this summer.  An unparalleled combination fo athleticism and ability on one floor. But instead of stressing over how this Heat team has underperformed relative to expectations, let's just take a look at this, because it's more than a little bit absurd. 




Baseline. To. Baseline. 

Thing is, Wade and James had have been planning that. Wade doesn't hesitate for a second. He secures the board, pivots, and launches. It's a three-step move. Catch, pivot, throw.  James no doubt alerted Wade when he turned for the break and saw that he had daylight. Still, that's a remarkable combination of outlet pass, catch, and finish. 

More of that, please, sirs.

My God, are you haters really that spiteful to downplay what is, in fact, an awesome play? If LeBron had dunked it (and he probably could have), it would have been the play of the year. Hate on LeBron and the Heat all you want, that doesn't change the fact that this is indeed an "absurd play".

This really wasn't that awesome.  He threw a long PASS, so please don't say he alley ooped it, because it wasn't a dunk, it was a very good PASS.

The pass is completely overrated. My point guard in high school made a pass similar as well as our power forward who made an even better pass while taking the ball out of bounds - after the other team made a basket he took the ball out of bounds and passed it the full length of the court to a player who was no where near the athlete Lebron is.  And of course Lebron tweeted that it was the best pass ever in the NBA. Typical ignorant comment from someone who's ego has completely warped his view of reality. The heat will lose in the first round of the playoffs ................

I wouldn't call it a three-step move "catch, pivot throw" more like catch, land travel throw.  There was not pivot, he shuffled his feet.

Impressive?  Sure, no doubt about it.  Could it have been better?  Absolutely.  If it had been an alley-oop dunk.  Now that would have been something.
