Video: LeBron James pulls off absurd no-look, over-the-head pass to Danny Green for a 3-pointer
The Los Angeles Lakers put on a show at Staples Center on Wednesday, convincingly defeating the Golden State Warriors with a final scoreline of 126-93. At the center of the show was none other than Lakers superstar LeBron James, who dazzled the home crowd with another outstanding display.
However, there is no doubt that the highlight of the evening was LeBron’s amazing off-balanced, no-look pass to teammate Danny Green:

It almost seems impossible how James managed to make what turned out to be a pinpoint pass to a wide-open Danny Green. The sharpshooting wingman gladly obliged, and made sure he would sink the corner trey to complete one of the best highlight plays of the preseason thus far.
This was just one of LeBron’s 11 assists on the evening, as he served as the team’s primary facilitator in his 24 minutes of play. The three-time NBA champ also managed a team-high 18 points (on 6-of-9 shooting), four rebounds, and a steal to lead L.A. to victory.
Much has been made of how the Lakers failed to surround LeBron James with shooters in his first year with the club last season, so the addition of the likes of Danny Green this summer should more than make up for the lack of outside shooting the team had last term. Notably, the Lakers also added Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook, and Jared Dudley over the summer, while also retaining the services of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope — all of whom are pretty potent scorers from the outside.
