LeBron James is being heckled not just for his fourth quarter performances anymore. Well, technically those change for a dollar jokes are still lurking around the league, but for now the request for James to be in the 2012 All-Star dunk contest are trumping his in-game triumphs and failures.
After seeing the resume he has compounded this season so far, who can blame critics for wanting him prove his abilities in another avenue? He has had the potential for awesomeness ever since he entered the league with the Cleveland Cavaliers. James has always been an exciting part of All-Star weekend, but mainly during the All-Star game.
The dunk contest has always eluded his priorities.
But, if he were to take the world up on their invitation into the All-Star dunk contest, there are several things that he could do to dethrone Blake Griffin. Of course nothing with zero contact can eliminate the buzz surrounding Griffin’s latest poster victim, Kendrick Perkins. James could still do a few things that would earn a few fans and make people respect his effort.
