LeBron James Throws Sick Behind-the-Back Pass to Ray Allen (VIDEO)

His talents on full display in South Beach.

The play of the game last night wasn’t some monster dunk from LeBron James or Dwyane Wade; instead, LBJ was adding to his personal highlight reel by finding his teammates with crazy passes.

    Outside of point guards, Lebron is the best passer I have seen.

    I’d say he’s better that most PGs too, he just doesn’t play point full time

    I was thinking about him. While I confess I didn’t watch Bird play during the 80s (too young), from the highlights I have seen I’d give Lebron the edge. But still, others are better placed to make that comparison.

    On the basis of this pass? No.

    Even outside PGs, I’d say West, Bird, Kobe and Jordan have similar passing skills.

    Hell, I remember Kobe doing the exact same thing TWICE to Pau in one game this season……

    He’s an elite passer. The best is stretching it though. Most willing? Possible. Bird might be the only competition outside of PGs.

    I WILL be killed for this but I’d say Luke Walton can do something like this easily as well………..

    I’m gonna throw up a bit after making that statement. It feels wrong but from all my time of watching Walton, he excels at that one part of the game : Reading others’ movement and passing the heck outta the ball.

    I’m pretty sure there are other smart elite passers who are just role players though. I’d be happy if someone adds to that list. Sabonis and Bill Walton come to mind quickly.

    I respect your opinion, but I think Lebron has a better combination of court vision, creativity and, last but not least, physical strength than the guys you mentioned. That allows him to make passes sometimes that I’ve only seen the best PGs attempt.

    But, I acknowledge that it’s pretty close, and I agree: Walton is a great passer, though he’s pretty terrible at everything else. There was a good piece recently on Grantland about his role as a playmaker on the Cavs this past year.

    In all seriousness, Luke Walton is a great passer!
