LeBron James has threatened to stop his awesome display of “off the glass, between the legs” dunks he spoils the crowd with during the Miami Heat pregame warmups. Seen as a relatively new Heat tradition, the layup line/mini dunk contest excites fans and spectators alike more than the actual NBA All-Star Dunk Contest itself. Let’s all be honest, the dunk contest has sucked the past few years with the best players/dunkers opting to watch from the sideline in their best runway attire rather than participate.
Well I guess this angered some strange person, because now Lebron has threatened to stop displaying his awesomeness…
“Maybe I should stop because it’s making a lot of people mad about what I do,” James said after last night’s game. “They’re like, ‘Well, if you can do it in warmups, why don’t you (want to) be in the dunk contest? Stop it.'”
Now I don’t know who complained about this. Of course we all wish James would enter the dunk contest! His warmup dunks alone would dominate the competition. But for whatever reason it will probably never happen. So I don’t know about you guys but I will take a LeBron James dunk during a pregame warmup over the dunks in the dunk contest anyday! Even though my favorite team is the Indiana Pacers, we all know that LeBron is the best player on the planet.
