We're used to seeing LeBron James pull off some pretty athletic plays, but one drive to the basket Thursday night made him look even more superhuman than he normally does.
While double-teamed by two Philadelphia defenders, James attempted to dribble behind the back and split the pick set by Tristan Thompson.
He actually wrapped the ball around his back and bounced it between Thompson's legs, only to recover and drive for a floating layup bucket and foul call.

James said he didn't even know he went through Thompson's legs until halftime.
"One of my guys from the NBA showed me and I was like OK, yeah, it's probably one of the best plays I've had in my career," James said.
15 years into his career and LeBron is still doing things on a nightly basis that you’ve never seen before— Jordan Zirm (@clevezirm) March 2, 2018
Convinced LeBron traveled back in time to end up here and bless us.— Osman Noor (@OzzyForMayor) March 2, 2018
Cause he is really about two periods of human evolution in front of us.
The Cavs lost to the Philadelphia 76ers Thursday night at the Q 108-97.
