Very Messi-esque. Wasn't a foul though.

so essentially the euro step is driving while doing a dribble between the leg with your strong hand from back to front

This was awesome by lebron. The ball going through his teammates legs was accidental but who cares lol. The off hand finish with contact is what I like to see.

Define “Footwork”. Half that list isn’t footwork

All I see in that play is a lucky behind the back between his teammates legs. Then he just runs to the basket, jumps and finishes absorving the contact.

This play has literally nothing to do with footwork.

that was not a lucky or accidental, Lebron intended on the ball going between the legs.

That's totally not true and he even stated after the game that going through the legs was totally unintentional.

Still, it is a beautiful move by one of the ATG's and all should appreciate it. Best footwork of all time? That's completely subjective. I wouldn't personally say so, but it is a beautiful display of basketball awareness, footwork, body control, and as far as going between the legs, a bit of luck.
