LeBron James might have the greatest photographic memory in sports.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star was explaining to the media a series of plays during his blowout loss to the Boston Celtics, and he was able to remember each – step by step – in an unbelievable way.
What happened? The first possession, we ran them down all the way to two on the shot clock, Marcus Morris missed the jump shot, followed it up, they got a dunk. We came back down, we ran a set for Jordan Crawford, I mean Jordan Clarkson, and he came off and missed it. They rebounded it. We came back on the defensive end and we got a stop. They took it out on the sideline. Jayson Tatum took the ball out, threw it to Marcus Smart in the short corner, he made a three. We come back down, miss another shot, and then Tatum came down, went 94 feet, did a Eurostep and made a right-hand layup. Timeout.

Say whatever you want about LeBron, but thats nothing short of unbelievable. Think about how fast the pace of play is in the NBA and how rapidly things change. (RELATED: THESE ARE THE ODDS FOR WHERE LEBRON JAMES WILL PLAY NEXT SEASON)
I could watch tape of a couple possessions for an hour and probably still not get it correct. Meanwhile, James comes off the court and recounts the whole thing without probably having seen a second of game tape. It just goes to show why LeBron is so good and just on a different level. Hes capable of pulling off any athletic play necessary, and has the brain of a genius. He sees things on a different planet from most people. Thats probably why hes won three NBA championships and multiple MVP awards.
You can hate him or love him, but youre a moron if you dont understand the talent and intelligence of the man.
