On his way to another triple double (31 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists) in Friday's Game 4 NBA Finals win over the Golden State Warriors, LeBron James threw an alley-oop to himself in the third quarter, a play normally reserved for All-Star Games or dunk contests.
"He's a Gatorade baby," J.R. Smith said of the play. "He was made in a lab somewhere."
Even if the Cavaliers go on to lose this series, it will be remembered as one of the coolest individual plays in Finals history.
Where it will rank remains to be seen, but here are some other iconic moments it may compete against.
2001: Allen Iverson's stepback
The 2001 NBA Finals was a David vs. Goliath situation: Iverson's Sixers against the Shaq-Kobe Lakers. Nobody gave the Sixers a chance to even win a single game, especially since the Lakers had gone undefeated through the West. But Iverson, the Most Valuable Player that season, put his team on his back, and scored 48 points in an overtime Game 1 win. The most signature moment came when Iverson hit a jumper over current Cavs coach Tyronn Lue and then stepped over him on the way back down the floor. It remains the coolest moment in NBA Finals history.
2013: Ray Allen's three-pointer
Allen's three-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals was arguably the most memorable moment in modern-day Finals history. Years of practice and focus on his footwork led to this one moment for the veteran, who had just enough space in the corner to hit a game-tying three in Game 6 to save Miami's season. They would win the game in OT, and then clinch the championship two nights later in Game 7.
2016: "The Block" and "The Shot"
Cleveland sports fans know all about doom and gloom. Bring up "The Fumble" or "The Drive," and you can see the misery that comes over their faces. But thanks to the 2016 NBA Finals, they now have "The Block" and "The Shot" to celebrate. LeBron's chase-down block of Andre Iguodala in a tie-game with under two minutes left in Game 7 will go down as the signature moment of his Finals career, while Irving's three-pointer sealed the deal.
1998: Michael Jordan dekes Russell
Technically not Jordan's actual last shot, but let's just ignore those last few seasons as a Washington Wizard. In 1998, MJ's Bulls were on the verge of completing a second three-peat, leading the Utah Jazz 3-2 in the Finals, but trailed by one in the closing seconds of Game 6. A loss would have meant a Game 7 on the road for the Bulls. Instead, Jordan hit an iconic shot over Bryon Russell to clinch his sixth championship.
1992: The Jordan shrug
In the 2011 song "Otis" from the Watch The Throne album with Kanye West, Jay Z proclaimed that he invented swag. Truthfully, the moment swag was invented might have been during the 1992 Finals, when Jordan hit six three-pointers in the first half, on his way to 35 first-half points (he somehow only finished with 39 points in that game). After his sixth three-pointer, even Jordan was amazed by his own basketball ability, as he could only muster a grin and a shrug that has become a signature moment in NBA Finals history.
1994: Hakeem Olajuwon blocks John Starks
A moment that will haunt Knicks fans came in Game 6 of the 1994 Finals. With New York up 3-2 in the series against Houston, the Knicks trailed by two in the closing seconds, but had the ball with a chance to win. Starks appeared to have a clean look at a potential championship-clinching three, but Olajuwon made one of the most important defensive plays in Finals history, blocking Starks at the buzzer and sending the series to a deciding seventh game, where Starks shot 2-for-18 as the Rockets prevailed with a 90-84 victory.
1995: Nick Anderson's four missed free throws
The 1995 Orlando Magic had beaten Jordan and the Bulls, and led by Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway, appeared on their way to becoming the next dynasty in the NBA. Facing off against the Rockets in the Finals, the younger and more athletic Magic team was favored by many to win, and proved that by going ahead by double digits at home in Game 1. The Rockets chipped away at the lead, but in the closing seconds, leading by three, Magic guard Nick Anderson went to the free throw line to clinch the game, but missed two free throws. After an offensive rebound, he got two more shots at the line, and missed those too.
Kenny Smith hit a game-tying three to send the game into overtime, the Rockets stole Game 1, and changed the entire momentum of the series, and Houston went on to sweep Orlando, who never returned to the Finals as a group.
2010: Ron Artest's Game 7 three-pointer
Many will remember Game 7 of the 2010 Finals as the game when the Lakers overcame a 6-for-24 shooting night from Kobe Bryant to win the title, but those who remember the nail-biting deciding game at Staples Center will remember the Lakers leading by three in the final minute, the ball swung to Artest from beyond the arc, the entire arena gasping in unison knowing that he was going to shoot a three, and then exploding in jubilation when he made the trey to help clinch the championship for the Lakers.
It also led to one of the greatest post-Game 7 Finals press conferences ever:
2000: Kobe Bryant's game-winning putback
Kobe's signature moment in the 2000 playoffs came in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals when he tossed a signature alley-oop to Shaquille O'Neal in the final minute to complete a historic fourth quarter comeback.
But a forgotten moment came in Game 4 of the 2000 NBA Finals. When O'Neal fouled out in overtime with 36 points and 21 rebounds and the game in balance, Bryant told his Big Fella: "I got you," pouring in 28 points and hitting a game-winner on a put-back of a Brian Shaw miss to put the Lakers ahead 3-1 in the series. The Lakers would go on to win their first championship with Shaq and Kobe in six games.
2005: Robert Horry's Game 5 overtime performance
In a testament to Big Shot Bob's career, his Game 5 performance in the 2005 Finals as a member of the San Antonio Spurs against the Detroit Pistons often doesn't make the very top of his list of clutch plays. But with the series tied 2-2, Horry went from role player to go-to guy for one night, scoring 21 points in 32 minutes. With the Spurs trailing by two late in overtime, Manu Ginobili found Horry for a game-winning three.
