Tweet NBA fans have wanted LeBron James to compete in the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest since he was drafted out of high school by Cleveland in 2003. This dunk that LeBron jammed home during pregame warm-ups is exactly why people want to see him in that contest (skip ahead to the 34-second mark): The fan [...]

DON'T TEMPT HIM!
Due to all the flak he receives for doing it but not participating in All-Star slam dunk contests, LeBron James says he might put the kibosh on his pregame dunk displays.
LeBron James is just toying with us by showing off like that. The man says it’s too late for him to ever participate in the Slam Dunk Contest, but then he goes out and throws down a sick dunk in pregame warmups that would have earned him 10s across the board from any set of judges.
Toward the end of the video, you see LeBron do a spin move, go between his legs, throw the ball off...
Sometimes the best slam dunks don't happen during NBA games but before them and that logic is evidenced in the below video of Miami Heat star LeBron James throwing down a sick dunk during a Heat lay-up line.The dunk comes at about the :35 second mark of the video as LeBron does a spinning behind-the-back alley-oop dunk:
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
LeBron James was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, as if there was any doubt.
King James led the Heat to a 4-0 record during the week, averaging 23.5 points, 9.3 assists, 7.8 rebounds and 2.3 steals. Averaging a triple-double doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility for James. Watch James posterize Tyler Zeller after the jump.
The Big Leagues One fan responds to the King.
Oh, nothing to see here folks. Just LeBron James putting on a little dunk contest prior to the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Sunday. ‘Bron has continually trolled the world about his possible inclusion in the NBA’s dunk contest, and he didn’t participate again this year. After seeing this video of him dunking you can bet this will spark another round of “if only LeBron...

Keith Dambrot, who coached LeBron James James at St. Vincent-St. Mary, has been at Akron since 2004.
In the face of Lebron's recent stint of greatness, numerous comparisons have been drawn between the King and His Airness himself, Michael Jordan. Most notable among these can be found in an interview on Dan Le Batard's 790 The Ticket radio show, where current Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said that he thinks LeBron is better than Michael was.Van Gundy weighed in with...
Ever since Lebron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to go to Miami, the Cavs have been rebuilding and now almost three years later, they have assembled an excellent group of players. Kyrie Irving is a budding superstar and a franchise player, Dion Waiters is a fantastic secondary scoring option, Tristan Thompson is becoming one of the best rebounders in the NBA and has developed...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Before he took a seat on the bench, LeBron James made sure to grab one more rebound.

MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade got hot down the stretch, and LeBron James missed a layup in the final minute.
Both were huge breaks for the Miami Heat.
James scored 28 points, Wade scored 11 of his 24 in the final five minutes -- when Miami needed him most -- and the Heat extended the NBA's longest current winning streak to 11 games, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-105 in a...
