This is not the first time James dunk produced an iconic image. In fact, in 2003, James’s first game-the very first NBA Slam Dunk–resulting in a memorable photo.
Surprisingly, James is almost a copy of that image 10 years later, when he was with the Miami Heat.
This may not even be James best dunk photos of the Sacramento Kings from this season. A week ago, he puts Ben McLemore on a poster. (Coincidentally, McLemore–now is a spare Rockets–there is a lot to see James on Thursday night to fall, though he is safely on the bench for that one.)
If it is any consolation McLemore, he is the only player who has ended up the wrong end of the iconic James dunk pictures. Just ask Jason Terry.
Or sometimes even basketball itself.
A closer look at the basketball.
