Jeremy Lin rocked the Internet over the weekend with a sweet crossover that sent LeBron James, the best player on the planet, sliding, when the Charlotte Hornets hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers at Time Warner Cable Arena (watch video above).
Lin’s crossover was followed by a step back jumper. And though the three-point shot didn’t fall, Lin’s crossover was enough to get Buzz City and its fans brimming with excitement. When you bamboozle the best player in the game with a move like this, that’s something to be proud of.
The Hornets bench exploded, with all the players on their feet. Ever since his entry into the league, Lin’s ball-handling skills have been on notice. Though Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving are widely acknowledged as the two best ball-handlers in the league, Lin is right up there with them.
Lin finished the game with 7 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds from 20 minutes of playing time.
The Cavaliers eventually won that game 95-90 courtesy of James’ 25 points.
