LeBron James gave us yet another magnificent playoff performance last night in a pivotal game 5 against the Pacers. After seemingly choking by turning the ball over, he goes down the court and blocks Victor Oladipo’s potential game winning lay-up with 3 seconds remaining. LeBron then has the ball inbounded to him and just like a storybook ending, he nails the game winning three-pointer.
While a lot of people will say that they never lost faith in LeBron, one kid seems to take that faith in the King a little farther by seemingly calling game as soon as the ball is released from LeBron’s hand. Now, either this kid is David Copperfield’s spawn, or this video is horribly faked. The camera then pans to the rest of the “awe struck” family members that you can tell aren’t as surprised or excited as a real fan would be after seeing this moment.

In the slight chance that this video is completely, 100% genuine, I give the kid credit for having that much faith in his favorite player and team. Can someone please teach this kid to get out of the way of the TV? If I’m up at 10 o’clock at night watching this, I want to get the whole effect. I don’t want the frame of a scrawny little child blocking one of the greatest defensive to offensive sequences in NBA playoff history.
