LeBron James has done it again. The most polarizing figure in the NBA, and possibly sports in general, is dominating headlines Thursday night after what he did during tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Trailing 18-11 in the first quarter, James had the ball just outside the three-point line. What he did next will be the talk of the sports world for at least 24 hours.
LeBron used a behind-the-back dribble to get through two 76ers defenders. However, that wasn’t difficult enough for LeBron, who also went through his own teammates legs in order to break free for a layup.

Now, we’re accustomed to seeing LeBron do some pretty incredible things, but if he actually meant to put this ball between Tristan Thompson’s legs, he’s on a whole other level. Many will be focused on the ridiculous dribble, but he used an equally impressive finish at the rim for a bucket.
Philadelphia and Cleveland are tired at 34 early in the second quarter.
