CLEVELAND - MAY 22:  LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers shoots the game winning three pointer over Hedo Turkoglu #15 of the Orlando Magic in Game Two of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2009 Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena on May 22, 2009 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Friday night was magic, but not for Orlando fans.
With one second on the clock LeBron "King" James displayed his best Michael Jordan impersonation and executed one of the best catch and shoot plays in NBA history, sealing a 96-95 victory for the Cavs and tying the series 1-1.
The Magic had a 23 point lead early in the first half, but reminiscent of Game One of the series, Cleveland blew the huge lead and found themselves trailing in the final quarter with one second left in the game. 
Enter LeBron James. Mo Williams took the ball from the ref on the last play of the game, found an open James, and LeBron turned and shot the biggest three-pointer of his young career.

I remember Michael Jordan making shots like that in playoff circumstances during his career, and this shot by LeBron certainly puts him in elite company. 
I expect this is not the last time we will see this incredible basketball player perform outstanding feats in the NBA. I look forward to watching the remainder of this series, and the remainder of the career of LeBron James.
