Cleveland Cavaliers fans had the pleasure yesterday of watching the first of what they hope will be many Irving-to-LeBron highlight reel plays. James and Irving pulled off the sweet play during the Cavaliers scrimmage, which, by the way, 16,000 Cavs faithful came out to see.
On the play, Irving caught the ball around midcourt and drove into the paint. As defenders closed in around him, he threaded the ball backwards between his legs where a running LeBron scooped the pass and threw down a jam.
The crowd and announcers all went nuts on the play, and rightfully so. This was a sneak peak of what we could see for years to come in Cleveland.
One of the Cavs announcers had the best response to the play.
“Two words for that,” he said giddily, “Umm, yes please.”
