Video: Lakers star LeBron James throws no-look alley-oop from halfcourt to JaVale McGee

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James makes no-look passes appear like the easiest thing in the world. Within the last two minutes of the second quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers, James made another one of those jaw-dropping no-look passes. This time, JaVale McGee was the lucky recipient.

The Lakers have gone off to a slow start to the season but they have been rolling since the addition of ex-Phoenix Suns big man Tyson Chandler.

JaVale McGee has also been one of the more underrated stories in the NBA this year so far. He has played very well alongside James — above everybody’s expectations. Coming off two title runs with the Golden State Warriors, McGee has a new challenge with his decision to sign with the Lakers.

Entering Wednesday night’s matchup, he is averaging 13.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 3.0 blocks, and 1.1 assists per game. He is also shooting 61.9 percent from the floor. This is what the Lakers envisioned when they signed McGee. He is a huge part of their schemes on both ends of the floor.

LeBron James is sure to have plenty more of these plays with JaVale McGee. His playmaking and elite court vision is a perfect complement to the latter’s length and athleticism.
