LeBron James' game-winner vs. Raptors causes Twitter frenzy among NBA stars

#LeBron

LeBron James did it again.

With the flick of his wrist, The King not only sunk a game-winning shot but also any hopes the Raptors may have had in coming back in Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference second-round playoff series.

James' fifth career playoff buzzer-beater - and his second of this postseason - helped Cleveland earn a 3-0 series lead over Toronto and gave his team a chance at a sweep on Monday night.

This play, unsurprisingly, caught the attention of NBA stars - even some of James' past rivals.

None of these players should expect any response from King James anytime soon due to the Cavs forward's self-imposed social media exile, but James surely knew he would set Twitter ablaze once he hit that shot.
