The best in the unofficial series, LeBron put one between his legs in mid-flight before Tuesday's game. LeBron went on to score 40 points and record 16 assists against the Kings. The Heat defeated Sacramento 141-129 in double overtime.
LeBron's pregame dunk show, which also often includes other players like Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen, was once an intimate and almost secretive experience for fans who arrived early for games at AmericanAirlines Arena. That's no longer the case. ESPN has run wild with the story and the Heat has started streaming live video of its team's pregame warm-ups.
In other words, expect LeBron to shut the whole thing down. What was once organic fun now seems forced.
