Lebron James’s Pre-game Dunk Was Better Than The Dunk Contest

In a perfect world, NBA stars like Lebron James would compete in the dunk contest each year. You can say what you want about him, but the guy’s athleticism is unreal. And let’s face it, the dunk contest is a snooze fest. You may get one or two dunks each year that causes you to double-take. But for the most part, you really aren’t interested because there are no big-name players competing. Which dunk won last year’s contest? Bet you can’t answer that but you CAN remember where you were when you saw Vince Carter put his entire elbow inside the rim. If Lebron wanted to, he could destroy the dunk competition and have fans and media talk about those dunks for years to come – like we did/still do with guys like MJ and Vince Carter. During his pre-game warmup the other night, Lebron showed off his athleticism by casually throwing down a dunk that was better than anything we saw in the dunk contest this year. Just do us all a favor and compete, would ya!?
