Video: Lakers’ LeBron James dishes no-look pass to JaVale McGee for the easy slam
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James showed off his vision via a no-look pass to JaVale McGee who went up for the easy slam dunk.
In the clip posted by NBA TV, James led fastbreak opportunity against the Sacramento Kings. Like he’s done many times, the 34-year-old outran and outmuscled his foes. Instead of finished it off himself, he dropped it off to McGee who was camping in the paint.

The Lakers are officially out of the playoff race. Despite this, Luke Walton and crew are still looking to gain more experience on the basketball court.
This season revealed that the new purple and gold squad still have tons to work on if they want to compete for the championship. Having James on the team is a great thing. After all, he’s tagged as the best basketball player in the world today.
But as the season showed, having a four-time MVP and three-time champion is not enough. Analysts believe that a massive roster restructuring is underway. Possible signings and blockbuster deals might ensue in the offseason.
And given the Lakers’ antics last February, it seems that the only untouchable piece is James. Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka showed that they’re willing to give up half of their roster to win — even their young guns.
