Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James expressed regret for not participating in the NBA dunk contest during the annual All-Star Weekend.
According to Fantasy News by CBS Sports, Lebron James reportedly confessed to Dwyane Wade that he should have pitted his dunking skills against the NBA's highest flyers.
The 6-8 forward has committed to join the dunk contest in the past, but balked at the last moment claiming that he's more an "in-game dunker."
However, fans looking forward to Lebron James in future dunk contests will be disappointed as the Cleveland Cavaliers forward said that he's already too old for that.
In a statement from Bleacher Report, it's not only the fans that think Lebron James should have joined the slam dunk contests but also the two-time MVP himself.
Watching all the slam dunk contests in front of him, he thought he would have been great in that category. James is hailed as one of the greatest in-game dunkers in the history of the NBA. The 6'8" 250 pound superstar, according to Bleacher Report, is the sole reason why the industry of poster printing is very much alive these days.
Lebron James' in-game and pre-game dunks have been giving fans a glimpse of what to expect had he joined the dunk contest. Unfortunately, that's only what they're going to see now.
Lebron James has earned two championships in his stay with the Miami Heat, and opted to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers after last season where they lost against San Antonio Spurs in an old-school beatdown. His return to the Cleveland Cavaliers was a result of a three-team trade that included acquiring Kevin Love to their roster. He's yet to prove his supremacy by bringing the Cavs to the playoffs.
