LeBron James did it again.
With the flick of his wrist, The King not only sunk a game-winning shot but also any hopes the Raptors may have had in coming back in their NBA Eastern Conference second-round playoff series.
James’ fifth career playoff buzzer-beater — and his second of this postseason — helped Cleveland earn a 3-0 series lead over Toronto and gave his team a chance at a sweep on Monday.
This play, unsurprisingly, caught the attention of NBA stars — even some of James’ past rivals.
Ay LeBron LeBron… 🤦🏻♂️

None of these players should expect any response from King James anytime soon due to the Cavs forward’s self-imposed social media exile, but James surely knew he would set Twitter ablaze once he hit that shot.
