It isn’t simply that great athletes have superior physical skills, they have a higher “game IQ” than regular people do. After Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals, a reporter asks LeBron James what happened when the Boston Celtics went on a run at the beginning of the fourth quarter, scoring “seven quick ones.” With almost computer-like precision, James walks the room through the next five possessions, including details like who had the assists and, on the final play of the sequence, that “Jayson Tatum went 94 feet, did a little step and made a right-hand layup. Timeout.” This video shrinks James to an inset and shows the plays (sped up to keep up with his commentary) as he is describing them.
