VIDEO: LeBron James' Layup Was Tough, Clutch

The book on LeBron James in crunch time is far more complicated than one would think. Sometimes, he seizes the moment. Sometimes, he doesn't. Sometimes, he makes clutch plays that don't get recognized. Sometimes, he makes easy plays difficult.

But no matter how you feel about him, you have to admit this was a clutch layup. The degree of difficulty on this one was unbelievable. How many players in the league can drive from the top of the key, take two hits from Kendrick Perkins and flip a layup attempt over his head? How many can do it in the fourth quarter of a huge NBA Finals game?


Respect, LeBron. That was a grown-man move.
