“I accepted a bet while I was still shooting.”
Eighteen years into his NBA career, LeBron James continues to find new ways to impress.
The Lakers won an easy win over the Rockets in Houston on Tuesday, in fact, it was easy that LeBron and his teammates were showing their boats in the middle of the second quarter. With just under eight minutes left before halftime, LeBron found himself open to the bench in Los Angeles for three corner kicks. He took his feet behind the arch, pumped a fake, and threw it up. As soon as he released his hand, he turned around and stared at his teammates on the bench.
When shot falls, the bench goes crazy.
What LeBron revealed after the game about the shot makes it even cooler. If you take a closer look at the close-up at the end of the video, you can see Dennis Schröder say something to LeBron as he prepares to film it, LeBron told reporters that Schröder spoke to him. That “bet you won̵7;t do it”
“I took a bet while I was still shooting the ball,” says James. “To make a formal bet you have to have a handshake or you have to look at a man in the eye. I turned around, looked in his eyes and said, ‘Bet.’
Being convinced and having the mind to be aware of what Schröder has to say and to immediately acknowledge, while having the belief that you will not miss and look stupid is absurd. There was a risk LeBron might be ashamed of himself as ex-Laker Nick Young, but he was too smart to let that happen.
LeBron’s cool shot caught the attention of Stephen Curry, who didn’t watch the celebration all the time.
“When you shoot the ball as beautifully and easily and accurately as Stef, he has the best extra green light to do so because ten of the nine balls go into Steph,” said James.

Another great angle of LeBron photography.

He’s got the attention of the broadcaster as well.
