LeBron James Jumped the Gun Celebrating This Kyrie Irving Three-Pointer (Video)


Emotions run high in the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean that they should trump reason.

While outside the arc on a Kyrie Irving three attempt, LeBron James thought it’d be best to put a hand up in the air and run back to the other end of the court before the ball actually went in. Which, of course, it never did.

Here’s the awesome video of LeBron making a bad call on this thing. He must have really wanted that assist:

At least he’s demonstrating some faith in his teammates, I suppose. That’s gotta count for something!

Fortunately, the Cavs were able to ride out the close contest and get the W, which means LeBron’s bad judgement here didn’t have lasting effects in the win column.
