Lebron James Does ‘Off The Wall’ Dunks During Miami Heat Practice (Video)

People keep complaining about Lebron James not participating in the NBA Slam Dunk contest year after year, but the league hasn’t exactly offered any attractive incentives for the best players to stay involved in it every year.  The winner of the contest only receives around $35,000. If I’m not mistaken, even the prize money is not worth getting involved.  At least when Blake Griffin won the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk contest he got a check from the KIA car company too from jumping over one of their vehicles.  Spoiled fans still panned Griffin’s efforts on social media despite what I thought was still an entertaining dunk.  My impression is that most of the people who are clamoring for Lebron to get in the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk contest are those who wish to see him fail anyway. If you’ve been following King James for a while you know he’s one of the illest dunkers ever in the NBA period. Check out the video above as Lebron drops some ill off-the-wall dunks during the Miami Heat’s recent practice in Phoenix and below I posted a reminder video of the skills of King James during a charity game for Chris Paul’s charity foundation in North Carolina.

2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest (Video)

Here in Houston during the 2013 NBA All-Star festivities you can get a sense that people still look forward to the NBA’s annual Slam Dunk Contest. The vibe was one in which many people were hoping Lebron James decided to get into it, but that would not be the case as he & several other stars who are more than capable played the sidelines. The Toronto Raptors’ Terrence Ross took the crown this year, but the NBA needs to provide more of a REAL incentive for the league’s biggest stars to get involved in the long run for this event to thrive.
