Andre Iguodala has some surprising feelings about "The Block" from LeBron James

LeBron James is known for many things in the world of basketball, and his repertoire seems to grow every single year.

Not only does he have the most assists for any forward in the history of the NBA - and at only 31 - amongst other things, but his herculean efforts in last season's NBA Finals spawned another moment to remember.

In game seven of the NBA Finals, the Warriors had a two-on-one fast break with Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala bearing down on J.R. Smith.

Out of nowhere, LeBron appeared to deliver a chase down block just as Iggy was going for the layup.

King James is one of the best chase down artists in the game today, and considering he led all players for points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocks, it's no surprise with efforts like this which has come to be known as "The Block".

It played a big part in swinging game seven in the Cavs' favour and bringing the first championship to Cleveland in 52 years, but is Iggy bitter? Hell no, quite the opposite.

"If J.R. is not there, I'm dunking it. Well, I don't know if I'm dunking, though, because I was about to die out there," Iguodala said while busting out in laughter. "But I give him all respect. When he blocked it, I thought somebody got shot. I laugh about it all the time. People try to joke on me. I still get mentions all day from fans always talking about the block.

"I'm like, 'Man, that s--- was so dope to me, too.' I was a fan. That s--- was amazing. When he blocked it, I was like, 'Damn, somebody got shot.' I thought it was funny. Somebody just made a good play. What you want me to do? If you enjoy the game of basketball, you should just be like, 'Dude made a great play. F--- it.'"
