LeBron James’ remarkable athleticism appears to be as strong today at 33 years old as the day he entered the NBA.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Tyus Jones got a taste of it Monday when he attempted this breakaway floater with James defending the basket.

Wow. The block. The staredown. James gave Jones the full treatment on that one.

But Jones is a pro. And he learned his lesson and got a taste of revenge minutes later on the 13-time All-Star.


Notice there was no floater that time. Jones stuffed the ball just out of reach of a trailing James, giving him no chance to swat this ball. Looks like he was still feeling the staredown during that dunk.

Jones’ dunk pretty much summed up the night for the Cavs, who were never really in this game in a 126-99 Timberwolves win. James struggled to produce with just 10 points to go with eight rebounds and five assists.
