Make sure to take every precaution when attempting to emulate LeBron James while stuck at home.

The NBA's Twitter account shared a replay of Mike Miller's halftime buzzer-beater from Game 2 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals. James drew the defense inside before firing a pass to Miller in the corner.


What a 👀 from @KingJames to @MikeMiller_13 for 👌 at the buzzer! #NBATogetherLive https://t.co/wDIyTzjXuW

LeBron cautioned that some things are better left to the professionals:

I see you Killa 👀 @MikeMiller_13! 👌🏾. P.S. don’t try that pass at home! Ha! Don’t want your parents putting u on punishment during this quarantine. That wouldn’t be cool. https://t.co/gsygf1XJTs

Consider this a warning. Any pleas that you were just pretending to be your favorite player will probably fall on deaf ears, and good luck trying to have the four-time MVP foot the bill for any broken furniture that results from your recklessness.
