I keep seeing these great highlights of Lebron dunking and I think back to when I was a kid and watching MJ and "The Human Highlight Film" in the dunk contest. That was a lot of fun. I'd really like to see LJ compete in it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xoo_-xOk-O4
I wish Lebron James would compete in the Slam Dunk contest as well. Although I will say this year's contest should be the best in years with the new format.
LeBron James would never participate in the dunk contest. Not in a million years. We have to remember unlike the old generation of players, this generation views the all star games as a meaningless event that they could give two s***s about. Sure, back in Jordan's day, it was a good way for all stars to want to play at their best out of pride to show each other up in various events, but today's superstar doesn't care; unless we're talking about kobe bryant.
Plus, we also have to remember that today's nba superstar technically doesn't even have an off season anymore because of the olympics. People seem to forget that in the old days, the dream team only had to play in the olympics once every two or four years during the summer. Whereas now, it's every summer because they want our olympic team to remain competitive, so even when the olympics aren't going, they still participate in the fiba basketball tournament to keep their team chemistry in check.
therefore, players of today's generation aren't really concerned about all star games anymore,as most of them are just conserving their energy for games that matter. it's one of the main reasons why you'll never see another team break the bulls 72-10 record because most teams and players would rather coast through the regular season if they can help it, by just winning enough games to get to the playoffs, and then turning on the effort when the games count more; similar to what we all know miami and the spurs are doing.

I think it's just pure speculation, nothing serious, but imagine it. I'm taking sides with DT Shaun Rogers who says he doesn't think Lebron could take the punishment. Physically, Jame's is a monster at 6'8", 250...

With the previous and recent speculation that Lebron James is overrated I figured, Let me ask THE question. "King James" as some call him was coined as the "next Jordan" even before entering...
