Video: LeBron James’ Big Block on Kevin Garnett

I don’t think this Celtics team has ever appeared on the wrong end of so many highlight plays as they have over the last two games against Miami:

    Boston is lunch. It’s time for those senior citizens 2 pack it up.

  • Sparker

    garnett turns, sees him and adjusts… but bron just stays with him. in slo-mo, it’s downright crazy.

  • fruizm

    lebron was up in the air for like 12 minutes!!

  • robb

    I enjoyed that

  • mj23

    a highlight revenge for chris bosh(SOFT) :P

  • http://7h02.eu frednetick

    Should have switchted to the left hand

  • mj23

    lebron would just hanged in the air longer :)

    weird how they just hung in the air together for that long. i actually switched off before this happened because game was over. of course a major highlight happens right after…

  • Drew

    In slow motion it looks like Bron was starting to drop when Garnett made his adjustment, but then all of a sudden Bron goes up and extends another inch to make that block…that’s pretty incredible.

  • Joe

    This is KG’s official “Old moment”.
    Im a KG fan and it was hard for me to see this happen….It happens to all the greats, they have that moment where they are no longer able to do what they used to and get embarrassed by it…….Here was Shaq’s official “Old moment”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5svfUckueM

    That’s ridiculous. Too bad Kevin Harlan had packed it in already; that should have been a great call…

  • Fat Lever

    Haha, in slo-mo, it looks like Bron-Bron is waving good-bye to the Celtics title hopes.

    Only young Vince couldve done that

    Lebron is hanging in the air because he’s pushing off KG with his off arm! That is clearly a foul. If someone did that to LBJ, the refs would probably call a flagrant foul and the player would be banned from the NBA for life.

    KG should have either pump faked, or just went straight up and tried to dunk it. Hurts to see that KG is my main man!

  • The Beetle

    That is clearly a foul. FOrget Lebron KG is my main man

  • http://www.nba.com/celtics Byebye

    Beetle that was no foul gtfoh

  • http://www.slamonline.com house

    clean block

  • Waggle

    It clearly is a foul. Blocking hand is clean, gets great lift and meets him at the top, but his off forearm is right in KG’s chest. It’s obvious. Nice lift though.

  • 1982

    @Beetle KG was everyone’s main man 10 years ago, now he’s that guy who just got blocked.

  • http://www.twitter.com/jtrain73 Jono

    Wow first in 08 over KG in the conference semis and now this. Did KG do a delonte on his Mom or wot????

  • kudos

    That is a crazy foul. Who the heck can hold someone down while hitting them in the hand? Lebron that’s who. David stern should be sick.

  • Niio

    This still wasn’t as bad as when Manu blocked his dunk! Anyone remember that?

    Nice block, but it’s a foul. Check the off arm of LeBron. You can’t do that.
    Although, they’re incredibly inconsistent with this off-hand stuff, be it the blocker or the dunker. Whatever, it had little bearing on the outcome of the game.

  • flipnoyce

    Another charity by the refs. the last 7 minutes of the fourth quarter was basically put the heat players on the foul line. Watch the last 7 minutes everything before that its anyones game. I can’t wait fo C’s to play at home. Nice Block by LBJ though, just like when KG put Bosh on in his ASS on game 1 which was not put on here by SLAM!

  • giogolo

    sad to say that wasn’t a foul. It was a clean block, Lerbon’s L arm did not extend what so eevr.

  • giogolo

    Bosh sucks anyway.

  • Angel of Stern

    Haters really need to stop. I bet KG would admit that’s not a foul.

  • Galagu

    Just like Ben Wallace’s block on Shaq was a foul right? That was clean.

  • brahsef

    Some people think every good play in the nba is either a travel or foul. And then looove to point it out

  • http://slamonline.com everything

    @flipnoyce did you see the foul called on james jones over rondo?? How about the call where rondo jumped back into dwade in the fastbreak and wade got whistled??

  • nooneelse

    Lebron Traveled!

  • Scott Filgream

    ^nooneelse what a troll! you just hate the fact that it is a good block!

  • Mike From Spain

    Garnett should have shot the ball before, high arch / floater kind of thing, or switch to his left hand and lay it up. I would not bet highly on my ability to hang in the air longer than one of the top NBA athletic monsters.
