2011 NBA Playoffs Video: LeBron James Football Pass

It's NFL Draft weekend, so it's naturally that the basketball player most suited for being a tight end in the league would show off something that was worthy of the football highlight reel, right? NFL fans looking for a sure-thing quarterback might have been looking at the wrong sport, as the video below exhibits.

LeBron James had a relatively quiet game (22 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks, oh man, what a disappointment!) to complement the scorching Dwyane Wade, but he was very good at shutting down Paul Pierce for most of the first half and helping the Miami Heat build up their lead.

I was a little surprised that Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson kept on talking. I'm pretty sure the only way you can teach a basketball player to throw a 75 foot chest pass on instinct is if you were born to be an athletic freak like LeBron James, and had someone who can catch and finish like Dwyane Wade. That's just me though.
