LeBron James Shows off Dunking Prowess in Warm-ups

Fans of the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest will by now have heard the regrettable news that LeBron James is unlikely to take part in the contest this year.  There’s a little consolation, though, in the fact that LBJ doesn’t seem too shy to show off his dunking prowess in warm-up lines every now and then.  He got especially frisky prior to the Cavs’ recent game against the Clippers, and thanks to a fan who filmed King James’ aerial shenanigans, we have evidence.

LeBron pulls off a variety of dunks in the clip below, the highlight of which is a rider off the bounce reminiscent of Vince Carter’s McGrady-assisted effort in the 2000 contest.  Do you think that’s the best he’s got, or could he pull off something even more impressive if he actually took part?  Let us know what you think by dropping a comment below.
