LeBron goes in between Tristan Thompson's legs and finishes

It's one of the most incredible plays in James' career because it's the most unlikely, and yet it also because it somehow makes sense that he would be the one to do it.

A night after Houston Rockets star James Harden had one of the great disrespectful moves in NBA history, LeBron James found a way to do something miraculous. 

Because, of course he would.

James split an ensuing double team, with behind-the-back dribble - that went between teammate Tristan Thompson's leg - before scoring an 'and-1.' James didn't grasp the details of the play until halftime, per ESPN's recap.

One of my guys from the NBA showed me and I was like, `OK, yeah, that's probably one of the best plays I've had in my career

The Cavs would lose against the Sixers, 108-97, however. James finished with 30 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists.

It was a lucky play, but it wasn't the sort of luck that normal people experience. This isn't finding a ten dollar bill in your dirty laundry or finding a close parking spot at Whole Foods during rush hour.

That's the weird luck that happens to exceptional people, or like wealthy people who win the lottery.

You just shake your head.
