Hey LeBron, we still haven’t forgotten that time you said you’d compete in the dunk contest

PHOENIX - FEBRUARY 14:  LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers sits courtside for the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout on All-Star Saturday Night, part of 2009 NBA All-Star Weekend at US Airways Center on February 14, 2009 in Phoenix, Arizona.

It's been over seven years since LeBron James said he'd enter the slam dunk competition, and here we are…still waiting.

Remember that fateful night in Phoenix? When LeBron saw Dwight Howard straight stunting on everyone and felt compelled enough to announce to the world he was “preliminarily” putting his name in for the contest? Well, we do.

We're still waiting, LeBron. There's still time, LeBron. Please. Enter the contest. They needed to pull from the D-League this year.
