Oh wait wait it was because at first, he thought Blake would be defending his contest title so he didn't want to make it a huge event where he'd get embarrassed in front of millions of fans. So right when Blake resorted to not defend his title this year, good ol LeBron comes out of nowhere and says he would consider it. Dude likes to take the easy way out, story of his life.

Excellent question... told you.. im pissed at Lebron for not entering the dunkcontest...

....and.. wait what? Griffin? omg.... Lebron could have won that dunkcontest with his eyes closed! Anything Griffin did there Lebron could do AND MUCH BETTER..... and do much more...... what Griffin did was absolutely horrible... and the competition? even more horrible.... its Griffin who would have been embarrassed...

After seeing Griffin win it last year i got pissed at Lebron even more actually.....

SO...

Lebron can take of from FT line? CHECK
Lebron can twist the ball around before dunking it from there? (windmill) Possibly.... CHECK
Lebron can take of from the FT line and grab a ball and dunk it? (alleyoop) Possibly.... CHECK
Lebron can take of from the FT line and **** the ball back and dunk it with two hands? (tomahawk) Possibly... CHECK

Lebron can take of from the FT line while taking it between the legs in air and then dunk it? MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE
Through the legs from the FT line is life threatening.

Its only one-legged specialists who could pull that of with practice..... like James White (best one-legged leaper ever, watch him on youtube, he pulled of all those dunks im talking about with utmost ease), Lebron, Julius Erving...

Yes... but its not only that, you must be a one-legged leaper... which Lebron is... probably the best one at that since only James White...

Yes... but rewatch it... he stepped way over the FT line and BARELLY got there... of all his dunks he did there he got the least points on that one....

One-legged leaper means you get your HIGHEST vert by sprinting and taking of one leg (by majority its the left leg)..... like James White, Lebron James and Julius Erving.....

Vince Carter even called Lebron for "Having a bionic left leg", gona see if i can find that youtube video


Its only these type of high flyers that can pull of creative long distance dunks.... and the only such one-legged high flyer today is Lebron James...

**** Lebron, you better get in there before its to late!

lebron could tomahawk it with one hand from the free throw, but thats it.

between the legs? are you delusional? there is one person in history thats done it and its james white, who happens to be an olympic level high jumper and long jumper. lebron is neither, nor has he practiced either of those things like james white has.

you are a fool for thinking he could.

Between the legs? I said only maybe.... its possible considering his one legged long distance jumping ability...

Only a tomahawk huh? What about windmill and alleyoop? No? Why?

How hard could it be? Alleyoop is just timing....... and Windmill is Lebrons easiest go to dunk.... Windmill is probably even more easier than Tomahawk for Lebron... lol..

Oh speaking of Alleyoops, how about Jumping OVER somebody while doing an alleyoop? Im sure Lebron can do that, if he could do it ingame... im sure he can do in dunkcontest... that should give a 50

James White is an elite level leaper among the world, not just in terms of basketball.

you're severely underestimating how difficult it is to focus on a THROUGH LEGS MOTION while taking off from the FT line.

there is just not enough hang time available to do any sort of motion in the air and still land the dunk cleanly.

again James White is an exception to this.

So the dunks that will give Lebron all 50s i can guarantee you Lebron can do is:

1. Dunk from the FT line (50)
2. Windmill from the FT line (50)
3. Tomahawk from the FT line (50)
4. Alleyoop from the FT line (50)
5. Jump over somebody while doing an alleyoop (John Lucas? ) (50)
6. Im sure he can think up of something else to...

Honorable mention:
Between the legs from FT line? Can not guarantee... but not impossible... it gets more and more possible the closer he gets to the rim..... because a simple between the legs dunk for him is childsplay.....


Baring the competition? Who the **** could compete with that today? Tell me? Lebron will win the dunk contest............



and once again.... **** Lebron for not entering dunk contest

I truly believe that Lebron could do a windmill form the FT line, between the legs is too hard, even James White has made it, but remember that he has been dunking from the FT line since HS. Lebron should have joined the contest when he was playing his last year with the Cavs, because he jumped REALLY high that season and did some sick dunks during warm ups. But now.. I also really mad that that kind of athlete has never joined the dunk contest..
