Should this be a travel?

According to the NBA Video Rule Book, this is not a travel. Here’s why:

An offensive player may end his dribble by alighting off of one foot and landing simultaneously on both feet. The offensive player on this play gathers the ball, alights from his right foot, and then lands with both feet simultaneously on the floor. Note that at this point, the player may not pivot; if he lifts either foot, the ball must be released prior to that foot returning to the floor.

That’s exactly what LeBron did. So under the rules, it’s a legal play.
