So much for the post-deadline drama creating friction between LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates. Late in the second quarter of their team’s nationally-televised game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday, James and Brandon Ingram combined for a transition alley-oop that would make both basketball purists and YouTube highlight heads blush.

What a perfectly executed 2-on-1 fast break. This is the type of play youth coaches should tell their kids to emulate. Well, except for the scoop lob and cocked-back one-handed dunk, of course.

The Lakers are considered by most as one of deadline day’s biggest losers, failing to reach an agreement with the New Orleans Pelicans on a trade for Anthony Davis despite days of negotiating between both sides. Ingram was the most prized asset offered to the Pelicans, who reportedly rebuffed a package including him, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, and multiple first-round picks.

As such, it would make sense if Los Angeles came out flat against its long-time rival, especially after a wholly dispiriting effort on Tuesday night in a 42-point drubbing by the short-handed Indiana Pacers. Not so. Though the Lakers trail the Celtics at T.D. Garden, they’ve nevertheless played with a clear edge and flair, which James and Ingram put on highlight-reel display above.
