LeBron James decided he had had enough of whatever the Spurs were doing to stay within striking distance during Game 2 of the 2013 NBA Finals.
In a matter of moments, he turned a game that Miami was winning into an absolute blowout. First he told Tiago Splitter to never enter the paint again with the block of the series thus far. Only moments later, he threw down a thunderous dunk and the game was basically over.
The block absolutely blew up American Airlines Arena, and it blew up the Twitterverse as well.
That LeBron James block on Tiago Splitter… There should be a 7-foot chalk outline underneath the basket. Murderous.
