Why Does Lebron James Get Dunked On So Damn Much?

Lebron is at it again getting abused!

Ok, Ok... I know Lebron is a very good basketball player and all, but why does he get dunked on so much?

I know a lot of NBA basketball fans (LBJ nut swingers) are going to flame me for writing this, but this is starting to get ridiculous. In the NBA, people get dunked on and we all know this, but I don't know of any superstar who has got dunked on so many times as the guy known as King James.

Lebron James has had some tremendous blocks so far in his career, but so has many other NBA players past or present. A few great blocks does not make him a tremendous shot blocker. If this was the case then he wouldn't be getting creamed on so damn much...and by little guys too! Obviously he doesn't intimidate anyone as far as shot blocking goes. I'm not even going to go into stats because it is 100% not necessary to prove this point because it's not like he's averaging 3 or 4 blocks a game.

If you disagree with my outlook on this subject then what is your argument against it? Here is a few possible rebuttals.

  • Lebron tries to block everything
  • Lebron has no help defense
  • Lebron got caught slippin'
  • That guy was way too tall
  • That guy is to quick for Lebron

  • His mom was getting banged by a teammate
  • Etc.

Do you see where I'm trying to go here? Excuses, excuses...They are like assholes, everybody has one. Check out the video clip below showing King James as he gets posterized one smash after another. Also, just to let you know, there's a lot more facials that are not in these videos.

All comments are welcome.

The video above exists because he is Lebron James. After all, who would want to see a video of some non-All Star with no rep getting dunked on. Too bad the NBA didn't keep the stat "getting dunked on" because if they did Lebron wouldn't necessarily stand out.

Your logic is flawed. A lot of superstars get dunked on, especially active shot blockers, which you acknowledge while at the same time citing it as the reason you think Lebron is a bad shot blocker. The more you attempt to block shots, the more you get dunked on. Plus most of the examples in that video were unblockable. Like how is he supposed to block a Yao Ming dunk from behind? Yao is 7'6 and can dunk by just reaching up. Lebron was trailing and has to leap higher, which takes longer. Only about 2 or 3 of those were legit. Nobody ever called Lebron a tremendous shot blocker, but he is a great 1 on 1 defender and is good help shot blocker. He's consistently top 20 at his position in the block category. You just sound kind of bitter rather than trying to make a legitimate case. I'm guessing he didn't choose your team in free agency.

I agree with these comments might as well show the video of kobe getting slapped like he owed someone money... Lol lebron will break all time in points ever. He is on pace to reach 40k but also like kobe and kevin durant credit shouldnt be so high due to 4year s they skipped of college

Lebrons dunked on to blocked dunk ratio is horrible...that's all I'm trying to say here. People aren't afraid to attempt to bam on him, they are actually licking their chops. It's like taking candy from a baby. Yeah hes decent at blocking people from behind but face to face he sucks. Also, when people blow by him and then he acts like it wasn't his fault...It cracks me up.

You say his dunked on blocked dunk ratio is terrible, can you please let me know where it is and where I can find such statistics in the future?
