There are some athletes who can just do things so mind blowing that even if you’ve seen them do something similar before, you feel like you’re seeing it for the first time. LeBron James can just about fly, that’s nothing new, but the heights that he reached in the Heat’s win over Atlanta were just incredible.
Just watch how close James gets to banging his face on the rim when he’s throwing down this lob for the thunderous one-handed jam. A dunk is just two points, but something like this is so demoralizing for the other team, it has to be worth a few more in the long run. Even NBA guys have to be impressed when they see something like this.
