WATCH: LeBron James misses wide-open windmill dunk
This looks so dope, right? Well, watch what happens. Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Even the greatest basketball player in the world can have a rough moment. LeBron James reminded us that he’s human Wednesday night.

While taking on the Brooklyn Nets at Quicken Loans Arena, the Cleveland Cavaliers star made a terrific read on defense, snatched a Caris LeVert pass and headed toward the rim on an uncontested fast break.

The home crowd roared as James gathered himself and attempted to uncork a windmill, but it didn’t go as he planned.

At least the Nets didn’t score on the ensuing possession. That probably would’ve made the miss sting a little bit more.

Just remember that if LeBron can clang a wide-open dunk, it’s OK to make mistakes once in a while.

Can you name every teammate of either Michael Jordan or LeBron James who played in at least one NBA All-Star game?
