VIDEO: Remembering When Marcus Morris Horse-Collared LeBron James & He Still Made an And-One Layup
While the timeless debate over LeBron James vs Michael Jordan as the GOAT will continue for quite some time, proponents of both sides of that coin can appreciate LeBron's sheer strength.
And for anyone that needed a reminder on who has been the greatest basketball player on the planet for the better part of the last decade, I give you LeBron.
Wow, there's a lot to unpack here just to highlight how incredible it is that the ball still went through the hoop.
Well-known defender Marcus Morris makes a full, two-handed commitment to horse-collaring LeBron while he's still on the court to try and prevent him from elevating the ball to the rim. Only to watch as his teammate, Jaylen Brown, smack the ball right off the glass and through the hoop for what would have been goaltending even if it hadn't gone through moments later.
As if that wasn't impressive enough, LeBron, of course, got the and-one call to add on an extra shot from the charity stripe for good measure. If there was a moment in this Game 7 that decided the Eastern Conference Finals as firmly in Cleveland's control, it'd have to be this one.
