Default How would LeBron do in the dunk contest?

LeBron says he's open to maybe participating in this year's slam dunk contest.

Read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=9184

How good do you think he'd do in it?

I think he can do things not many other players can't. He's still crazy athletic.

The annual will he or won't he. HE WON'T.

I actually think his handlers won't let him which pisses me off.

Its extremly hard to be creative nowadays... there is almost nothing we havent seen... He would (and many players today) guarantee win it if it was the 70s, 80s, 90s.... right now its extremly hard to be creative, not only that but also get a 50 out of it...

He can probably do a windmill/alleyoop from the FT line (trust me)... hell maybe even between the legs from FT line..... those dunks can be done only by extreme one legged leapers, like Lebron is... that should give him 50 and its very creative, considering nobody has done that in the past in the NBA dunkcontest (i dont think so?).... but im not sure what else he can think of..... that goes for any other player aswell, im not sure what anybody else can think of or be capable to do...

The only thing we havent seen is like... a 540/720 dunk, between the legs from FT line..... im sure there are other stuff you can think of, but really not physically possible...

We stopped caring 2-3 years ago. The whole 'Lebron in the dunk contest' intrigue more or less went kaput when he declared at one ASG that he was doing it the following year....then didn't.

Lebron is actually the only player in the NBA today who can do some dunks which we have never seen before in the NBA dunkcontest, i can guarantee he can complete these dunks:

Windmill from FT line
Alleyoop from FT line
Maybe even between the legs from FT line...

Those have not been done before because you need to be a ridicilous one legged leaper a la Julius Erving, Lebron James and James White (look him up in youtube, he has done all of these dunks with ease)...

those are all 50s.... but im not sure what else he can think of...

But then again....... that could be more than enough to win the Dunk Contest, im not sure anybody who he will be going up against will be able to do something else creative...

He has nothing to gain out of it. If he wins then fine nobody would care but if he loses he'd have hell.

Really? Well... here is Lebron... from INGAME (nobody has ever dunked further than that in NBA history in a game!).... look how easy he does it and how high he still he is when gets to the rim and now imagine how far away he can take of from and what he could do with the freedom & space of a dunkcontest..... windmill would only mean he would have to swing the ball before stuffing it... and alleyoop? easy... only between the legs could be challenging...
