Nothing to see here, just LeBron James with the no-look nutmeg assist

Dwyane Wade could hardly believe his eyes.

FOR THOSE WHO didn’t stay up last night to watch the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic — which, we’re guessing, is pretty much everybody — you might want to take a look at this.

Towards the end of the first quarter, LeBron James snaffled a loose ball and turned it into a delicious no-look nutmeg assist for Dwyane Wade.

Depending on how you look at it, this is even further evidence of LeBron’s incredible speed of thought, spatial and situational awareness, and inch-perfect execution… or it’s a complete fluke.

We know which side of history we want to be on.

The Cavs won by a point, 104-103.
