Lakers’ LeBron James rates his ridiculous pass to Danny Green vs. Warriors
With just over four minutes remaining and his team leading by 32 points, James brought the ball down the court in transition. As he often does, James drove straight into the paint. However, he was met by two defenders along his path. Somehow, the three-time champion managed to pull off a no-look, over-the-shoulder pass to Danny Green, who stood wide open in the corner for an open look at a 3.
James fell toward the stanchion, but his pass found its target. Green rose up and proceeded to knock down the trifecta, and the crowd inside Staples Center immediately erupted in cheer:

LeBron rated his pass after the game:
“It’s one of my … yeah it’s up there,” LeBron James said, via Joe Vardon The Athletic.
James logged 25 minutes in Wednesday’s victory, scoring 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the field (1-of-2 from beyond the arc), 11 assists, four rebounds and one steal. The former No. 1 overall pick also racked up a plus/minus tally of plus-30.
Though he’s entering his 17th season of NBA service, James says he’s ready to put in the work:
“I’m born to have workload,” James told ESPN following Wednesday night’s preseason game. “It is who I am, both on and off the floor.”
The Lakers will be back in action on Friday night, as they’re scheduled for another matchup against the Warriors. Tip-off inside the Chase Center is set for 10:30 p.m. ET.
