For a brief moment, it looked as though the Golden State Warriors were about to take the lead at a crucial point in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

With just over two minutes left in the fourth quarter, Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala rebounded a wild shot by Cavs guard Kyrie Irving. He then passed to teammate Steph Curry to begin a two-man fast break against a lone Cavalier player defending in the back court.


Then, just as Iguodala was about to make a sure layup, LeBron James came swooping in like Superman to knock the ball off the backboard into a teammate’s hand.

It’s is easily the most important block of LeBron’s career and may well be one of the greatest blocks in NBA Finals history. Take a look and judge for yourself.
