04:20 PM ET 05.24 | LeBron James hit a game-winning layup against the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, and his left-handed finish has become all the buzz. James states when he was eight years old his coach would drill him on the proper steps, and form, to finish with his left hand. That practice paid off for James, though it comes as no surprise that the leagues Most Valuable Player can drive left or hand and finish with either hand.

Not really. Only about 99% of NBA players can make layups with both hands
