LeBron Almost Took Out Bill Belichick Last Night

If you see LeBron James and a freight train flying toward each other at top speed, pray for the train. Even at the unenviable age—in professional sports, at least—of 32, James remains one of the most ridiculous athletes in the NBA. With the possible exceptions of Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin and Giannis Antetokounmpo, it’s not even close. Even considering the aforementioned players, Bron’s combination of size and speed can’t be found elsewhere.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who knows a thing or two about freak athletes—Gronk?—was in attendance at the Celtics vs. Cavs game last night, supporting one of Boston’s other championship-caliber teams. Isaiah Thomas and the Celts were able to walk away with the win, but when LeBron flew out of bounds following a failed put-back attempt, Coach Belichick wouldn’t have been walking anywhere—if not for some nifty momentum control on Bron’s part.


“That’s why I slowed up,” James said afterwards when asked about the near-tragic run-in with Belichick. “I definitely slowed up because I knew it was him. I’m not taking no legend out. I’m not doing that. I need to keep seeing him win. That’s pretty cool for me.”

Nice gesture, Bron, but let’s be serious. Seeing a Bostonian win isn’t anywhere on your list of personal goals.
