LeBron James Pulls Magic Trick Move on Washington Wizards

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 25, 2012

And just like that, he was gone. 

The Washington Wizards are already a befuddled bunch, so it doesn't take much to bamboozle them on the court. 

However, this move (h/t SportsGrid) dropped by LeBron James would have had any team collectively suffering from a bad case of broken ankle-itis. 

I'm just sad this was in a preseason game, because the King may forego the theatrics and never bring this move out when it counts. 

That's horrible news. 

The move was brought out of the magic bag in the waning moments of the second quarter, with the Miami Heat beating the Wizards 53-43 in preseason action. 

As you can see, everything is as it should be, until James decides to fake out the left side of the building with a sick dribble. 

With the handles of Sidney Deane and the confidence of Billy Hoyle, James goes behind his back and through his legs. 

In unison, the Wizards defense proclaims, "we believe you."

The only thing missing was a King James throwdown to polish it all off. With that being said, nothing is perfect, which we learn quite quickly watching Wizards games.
