    I never even came close to dunking so I’m just saying what I think. Well I was just gonna say, that’s way harder than it looks. Just wanna admit I never dunked before so how would I know if it’s hard to do that if I never dunked ? Cuz I tried it on my mini hoop and it was still hard😂😂😂

    nah, if Lebron's gonna join the dunk contest, he will choke. JR Smith is the best dunker on the CAVS roster IMO.

    Why do some people think we're missing out on something because Lebron won't participate in the dunk contest? He's not a CREATIVE dunker, he's a POWER dunker, the dunk contest requires creativity so he wouldn't win....well, he would only because of who he is, smh.

  • Justin Li

    I think LeBron will perform in the dunk contest at the end of his career. Because right now the all star game is more important, especially this year. Also because he still trying to chase Micheal Jordan which i think its already done with considering micheal went 6-0 in Finals. My opinion

    Hello friends i've been reluctant in purchasing this blank ATM card i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from ghost hackers & we both confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I've been withdrawing $5000 daily from the card & the money has been in my own account. So glad i gave it a try at last & this card has really changed my life financially without getting caught, its real & truly works though its illegal but made me rich!! If you need this card from real hackers then here is their Email : noraatm@gmail.com

    Hey ESPN how about you start covering sports instead of social media, pop culture, and politics. Like I’m actually surprised you covered basketball, but it was unnecessary coverage because this made new difference in the game. Stop covering the Cavs and Lebron all the time, accept that they are falling apart, and cover their poor play and how they can fix it, rather than drawing small positives from the team.

    Lebron is a in game dunker. He has no creativity with his dunks that’s why he never entered any slam dunk contest.

    I wish Bron would enter the dunk contest. He might be too old now but I still think he can win. That 360 proved he isn’t just an in game dunker.
