LeBron Does All Kinds Of Things Humans Aren't Supposed To Be Able To Do

This photo is of the last point of the final 25 LeBron James scored last night to give the Cavaliers a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. (Yes, for once, the Eastern Conference playoffs were not just watchable, but thrilling.) We find it amazing that in this shot, there are five Detroit Pistons and only LeBron. We know that LeBron's sort of a one-man team, but this drives it home in a literal sense.

So much to marvel about from LeBron last night, but our favorite has to be the two times, late in the fourth quarter, when he simply drove through all Pistons defenders for an easy dunk. It was a video game move, something that doesn't seem fair or governable by the laws we usually subscribe ourselves to. And it happened twice, in the most important game of his career, under the most possible pressure. We're officially a little scared now.
