LBJ's doesn't hold a candle to Blake's
But he didn't jump OVER him. He just dunked on him (some will argue whether or not it's even a dunk), big difference.
And, Bron's was harder because he didn't jump with the ball in his hand. Do people know how hard it is to do what Bron did?
Try jumping over something small at least knee level but don't look down, and have somebody throw you something. Now... not only jump over something while keeping your eye on the thrown object, but maintaining complete control and catching the object.... that shit is utterly ridiculously hard to do. And Bron not only did that but made the dunk in a game! Something like that is hard to pull off in a dunk contest and they usually use chairs or a 5 foot person bending down in front of the rim, knowing what they're gonna do... yet they usually tend to fail.
BG's dunk was dope and all, but still not more amazing than Bron's. Bron's is a rare perhaps once in a lifetime type of dunk.
