LeBron James has an innumerable amount of iconic plays across his legendary 20-year career, yet few resonate quite like “The Block.” The Golden State Warriors won a record 73 games during the regular season and held a 3-1 series lead over James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, but the league’s all-time leading scorer brought his hometown squad back from the brink. With the deciding Game 7 tied at 89 with under two minutes to play, the King kept it deadlocked as he thwarted a Warriors transition attack by chasing down Andre Iguodala and swatting his driving layup attempt with flawless anticipation. Kyrie Irving’s 3-pointer less than a minute later gave the Cavs the lead for good and James iced the game at the foul line with 10 seconds left to deliver the city its first basketball title in franchise history. Cleveland became the first NBA team to rally from a 3-1 series deficit in the Finals, and James’ third championship ended a 52-year pro sports title drought for the city. The 19-time All-Star posted 27 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and three blocks in the dramatic 93-89 victory on June 19, 2016 to win his third of four Finals MVP awards.
