Most iconic players have that one moment that they will be remembered for decades later.
For LeBron James, it looks as if the moment will be a defensive block, in last night's Game 7 win over Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
With less than two minutes to go, and with the game tied at 89-89, James somehow caught up with Andre Iguodala to block what seemed like a simple lay-up to give Golden State the lead.

It was a moment of defensive brilliance that showed James' willingness to help his local team finally win that elusive NBA title.
From behind the board, James' block looks even more astounding. It will be remembered for years to come.
