LeBron James drove to the basket in the first quarter of Game 3 against the Brooklyn Nets, and Paul Pierce could do nothing to stop it. Helpless, Pierce grabbed James' shoulders from behind. Kevin Garnett, also in the vicinity, did his best to get in the way. Yep, James scored anyway.

After a video review, the officials determined Pierce's foul was a flagrant. It's not every day you see a player take a flagrant foul and finish.

James made his first four field goals and already has 10 points in the game.

Here's the superhuman strength in GIF form:
