Just when fans think they've seen it all from Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, he finds a new way to surprise the basketball world. 

With under eight minutes to play in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Quicken Loans Arena, James utilized a pick from teammate Tristan Thompson and a behind-the-back dribble to create space between a pair of defenders. 

In the process, the three-time NBA champion nutmegged Thompson before reclaiming the ball and driving to the rim for the hoop and the harm. 

Philadelphia could pursue the 33-year-old after the season, but King James still holds court in downtown Cleveland for now.
