Ben there, done that: LeBron James teaches a posterizing lesson
Sacramento Kings rookie forward Ben McLemore learned the hard way that when LeBron James is driving to the basket and has a chance to dunk, trying to draw a charge isn’t the best method of defense.
The Miami Heat superstar threw down a monster dunk over McLemore in Friday’s Kings-Heat game in Miami, and it wouldn’t be surprising to find it on a poster one day.
"Sucks that it was him, too," James said. "I like him. I’ve been talking to him since he was in high school."
As one of the NBA’s best dunkers, it would be nice to see James compete in the Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star Weekend, but that’s a story for another day.
Check out the dunk of the year candidate in the video below.
(By the way, the Heat won 122-103. James shot 8 of 11 and scored 18.)
