5. Block Party in the West
It’s often regarded as the block heard around the world! Why didn’t Iggy just throw this one down? It was during game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals that King James asserted his dominance. The Warrior’s Andre Iguodala looked to take the lead with 1:51 left in the fourth quarter and an open lane to the basket. JR. Smith cleanly contested Iguodala’s shot, setting the stage for one of the most glorious defensive plays in NBA history! Swooping in from the opposite elbow, LeBron pinned the ball against the glass, ensuring the game remained tied! Kyrie would seal the game and the King James would earn his crown as a 2016 NBA Finals Champion and MVP!
