Most would say the best assist from the season is Dwyane Wade's full-court alley oop to LeBron James. Yes, that was terrific (even if he traveled). But Sunday, LeBron dished to Erick Dampier with a pass that I honestly think is one of the top 10 I've seen... ever. I'm serious.
Watch this thing over and over again. At one point do you ever see LeBron look for Dampier. I can't find a moment. It's just as if LeBron knew . He just felt Dampier. It was all instinct. To make the steal and remember Dampier should be right under the goal -- crazy.
The thing is, it was right on the money too. Like right in Dampier's chest. I'm telling you, this pass is just insane.
I'd encourage you to spend the rest of your afternoon watching it over and over again. You'll appreciate it more each time. Is it better than Larry Bird's over-the-shoulder look? Bird's was in the playoffs, LeBron's was in a loss to the Knicks. Whatever, it's still darn impressive.
