In last week's play-in tournament, LeBron James carried his team to a win against the Warriors in rather dramatic fashion.
At some point towards the end of the game, LeBron took a hit by Draymond Green that sent him tumbling to the floor.
He was on the ground for some time, apparently recovering from a hit to the face that he would later admit had him seeing double.
He would go on to nail a three-point jumper to seal the victory for his team, but fans didn't forget that moment by James, who some say did a rather marvelous acting job after that foul.
Today, the NBA community took it a step further, making a video of James getting an Oscar for his "acting performance" against the Warriors.
Fans were absolutely loving it, and there is no denying the sheer hilarity of the clip. We're just glad he's okay and suffering no ill effects from the fall.
Over his career, LeBron has been involved in a number of those kinds of plays, leading many to believe he has a habit of overselling and dramatizing contact, whether for an excuse or for the narrative.
Regardless, James is clearly under a massive spotlight this postseason -- even more so than last year. With his team struggling to get themselves together, can he get them deep into the West bracket?
