LeBron James has basically patented the chase-down block during his highlight-filled career. His most memorable denial came in Game 7 against the Warriors, rejecting Andre Iguodala late in the fourth quarter to help secure the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first championship.
King James did something very similar Tuesday night during the Cavs' preseason game against the Wizards. Kelly Oubre attacked the rim against Kyrie Irving but did not see James lurking behind him and as Oubre maneuvered around Irving for what appeared to be an easy layup, James pinned the ball against the glass.
Yep, James is ready for the real season to tip off next Tuesday against the Knicks.
