LeBron James Crowns the Bucks with a Pair of Insane Dunks

You know, I was just thinking about how long it’s been since we were treated with the full LeBron James experience.

Not since his dunk over Paul Millsap have we seen LeBron put someone on his highlight reel this convincingly. Nearing the end of the first quarter in the Miami Heat’s win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Ekpe Udoh made one of the greatest mistakes of his NBA career.

With LeBron given an open lane, because only the Bucks would give him an open lane, he took full advantage, driving and lifting off near the dotted-line. Udoh, meanwhile, thought it would be wise to get in the middle of this, despite having been on the other end of a LeBron dunk already.

James went through Udoh like he was an apparition, and threw down arguably his best dunk of the year.

At least his best dunk of the year at the moment, because, a quarter later, he’d top himself with a slam that would have won the past five dunk contests.

Once again, the Milwaukee Bucks, who rank 29th in defensive efficiency, gave LeBron James a wide-open lane. This time around, however, the Bucks knew better, and allowed LeBron to do what he pleased.

No wonder the rest of the league’s fanbases despise Miami’s. Heat fans get the LeBron dunk contest that every fan of the game has been asking for since 2003. #blessed.

LeBron James’ 20 Best Dunks of his NBA Career

Loyal and faithful reader,

With LeBron James terrorizing his opponents with rim-shattering dunks lately, I felt it best to compile a list of the 20 best dunks of his career over at Dimemag.com. 

I came up with the idea after the dunk over Ben McLemore, which makes an appearance at #20, but any of the four dunks he’s done recently (the dunk over Millsap, the two alley-oops vs the Lakers, the windmill against the Kings) could all replace it or even force it out of the top 20 altogether.

But that’s just how LeBron James works. When you think you finally got him figured it out, he goes and does something that reminds you why he’s unequivocally the world’s best basketball player. 

Miami Heat: Which LeBron James Dunk was Better?

Before this week, I was used to hearing rumblings from the dwindling number of critics of LeBron James who claim his dunks are stale and hardly ever coming on a defender.

LeBron James’ Top 15 Dunks as a Member of the Miami Heat

Despite only playing with the Miami Heat for three years, it was extremely difficult to narrow down LeBron’s best dunks as a member of the Heat to only 15. It’s just what tends to happen when you have the power and strength of Karl Malone, the speed and agility of Tim Hardaway and the hangtime of Julius Erving.

What do you get from that mixture? A perfect storm of rim-rattling, dunk-defying and altitude-achieving throwdowns that shake the heavens and the earth themselves. Dunks put down with such ferocity that Satan is banging on the ceiling of Hell with a broom telling LeBron to keep it down up there.

Next time you’re at the American Airlines Arena, make sure to take notice of the divots left in the ceiling by LeBron’s knuckles.

Since we’re all going through basketball withdrawals, a few of LeBron’s dunks will suffice until we start adding new videos to the King’s resume next season.

Miami Heat: Watch All of LeBron James’ Dunks from the 2012-13 Season

I’ve heard people say that LeBron James does the same dunk every time.

I call those people idiots. James had 144 regular season dunks, fifth in the league behind power forwards/centers in Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and JaVale McGee, and definitively led all postseason players in dunks with 28, nine more than second-place Tyson Chandler.
