Here comes a new trick shot from Mr. James – an underhand half-court swish. When did it for the first time you could call it lucky, I guess. The second time… well… those who deny James’ greatness could also question take two. But now… LeBron seems to have mastered his new skill (which should be patented any moment now) as he’s able to make that shot almost at will. This time he rises the bar by trying to make it from behind the half-court line. Outcome? See for yourself…

By the way… this new video has been posted courtesy of ’60 Minutes.’ Yes… LeBron James is set to appear on TV’s most famous stopwatch. Cleveland’s superstar will be profiled on CBS’ “60 Minutes” this Sunday in an interview he did a few months ago. The 24-year-old, who has led the Cavaliers to the NBA’s best record this season, sat down for the one-on-one with show contributor Steve Kroft. The magazine show spent time at one of James’ practices and filmed him at his Akron high school, as well as at a concert for President Obama he hosted at Quicken Loans Arena with rapper and close friend Jay-Z. James’ mother, Gloria, is also interviewed in the piece.

Previous tries after the jump.
