Lebron James’ Pre-Game Dunk Contest

January 28, 2009 – Dr. Dime

There has been a ton of Lebron James/Dunk Contest talk over the last few weeks here at The Hoop Doctors. Even the *ahem* ‘haters’ realize that having Lebron James participate would have been great for the league, fans, media, and pretty much anyone involved with the sport of basketball.

But back to the haters for a minute. Although the absurdity of it blows my mind, i’ve actually heard people say that they don’t think Lebron James would be a good dunk contest participant because his dunks aren’t flashy or innovative, just power and routine. I beg to differ. Lebron James has the power and explosiveness of Dominique Wilkens, the grace and hangtime of Michael Jordan, the pure hops of Vince Carter, and the ball handling skills of a Spud Webb. So in my mind Lebron would not only win the dunk contest, but possible pull off some of the greatest most electrifying dunks ever.

After recently watching this video of Lebron pulling off some amazing dunks just screwing around in warmups, you can’t help but imagine just what kind of dunks he could pull off in a competition where he has had time to plan out his routine and has the adrenaline pumping from the entire nation watching…..
