Whole commercial’s named “Out of Nowhere”, so it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the “playing 40 minutes, and making up 40 feet to make the defining moment of your career” is a clear ode to Lebron’s chase down block on Iggy in Game 7.
But is it Lebron’s career-defining moment? Rattle your mind, and it’s hard to say that it’s not, as of now, the moment of Lebron’s career we’ll be talking the most about in a few decades. Lebron’s always been consistently unbelievable, but he didn’t have that signature play yet, something you can call definitively his. Maybe it’s recency bias, but that block’s not just the best play of Lebron’s career, it’s a top 5 play of all-time. Has to be.
