James ‘would win Slam Dunk Contest’

Posted on 13/02/2014 in NBA

LeBron James has insisted if he entered the Slam Dunk Contest he'd win.

The MVP is widely regarded as one of the best finishers in basketball history, but has never competed in the annual event, which has suffered a major lack of quality in recent years.

Indiana's Paul George has upped the ante by saying he'll take part in New Orleans, but LeBron has not committed.

Instead King James held his own mini contest at a Heat warm-up in Phoenix and when a reporter asked teammate Dwanye Wade how he'd do in the real version, James cut in and simply said: "I'd win."

Wade agreed saying if LeBron were in the dunk contest: "It'd be one of the most watched events of the year besides the Grammys." 

Without James, is George going to win?
