LeBron James' crossover tricks Thabo Sefolosha, hilarity ensues

LeBron James is one of the best players in the NBA. Some call him the best player in basketball, regardless of the fact that Kevin Durant dethroned him as NBA's MVP last season.

But LeBron still has the skills and on Wednesday night he showed the whole of the NBA that just being LeBron James is sometimes enough to put somebody off and make them fall over.

As is quite often the case, one of LeBron's crossovers last night caused an opponent to fall over and almost break his ankles. It's not the first time that LeBron has caused one of his opponents to fall over, but it's the first time they've fallen over when James' skills on the play haven't really merited his opponent to be fooled so badly.

Epic fail 

In the video below, LeBron builds up to the crossover by looking like he's lost his bearings. He almost loses the ball and almost falls over himself at one point. Maybe it was a trick, and by luring his victim, Thabo Sefolosha, into a false sense of security, he shifted to the left with the ball before Sefolosha dropped to the floor. Rather than appreciating LeBron's skill in the video below it's pretty funny to see how easy it was for Sefolosha to fall over.

Hawks had the last laugh 

Meanwhile, Sefolosha and the Atlanta Hawks had the last laugh as they went on to dismantle the Cavs 127-98 on the road in Cleveland last night. The defeat was the Cavaliers biggest of the season so far, with LeBron contributing 21 points, while Kyrie Irving only managed a pitiful nine points in 32 minutes.

Next up for the Cavs it's Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.
