Even if you’re a Raptors fan, you had to respect what LeBron James did to the Raptors on Saturday night to put themselves in the driver’s seat with a 3-0 series lead.
It was a heartbreaker of a loss and one of the toughest ways to ever lose a basketball game, especially after OG Anunoby’s game-tying three just seconds before. With just under three seconds to play in the fourth, LeBron reminded everyone why he’s the king, as he drove to the corner right in front of the Raptors bench next to the baseline where he floated one up in the air, and saw it bank off the glass and in just as time expired.
The shot was so magnificent and noteworthy that ESPN’s SportCenter decided to make an entire Top-10 based around the shot, using all the different camera angles as they counted down.
We’re not sure which one we like the most, but the one where he drains the shot in the final second seems to stick out for some reason. It still stings, doesn’t it, Raptors fans.
You have to tip your hat to the King, because he made one of the bigger shots we’ve seen in these playoffs look so easy.
