Before there was LeBron James, there was Ricky Davis. Then, there was LeBron James, and there was just absolutely no room for Ricky Davis.
Now, you'll hear bitter Cleveland fans lamenting the fact that they feel Davis was better than "Queen James" (their words) to begin with, but once you leave Cleveland, Ricky Davis is nothing more than a guy who many said was a head case and once chased a triple double by shooting off the wrong rim.
Throw those memories out, because Davis did have some memorable dunks, and we're trying to remember the positives here, and Davis gave Cavs fans some great dunks. In fact, if you're not paying close attention, some of his dunks actually look like LeBron James dunks.
For all he was or wasn't as a player…he's looking down into the rim as he dunks it at 0:29 and kept fans excited until the Cavs eventually let him go in favor of someone who had true legendary status, instead of just legendary dunking status.
It's hard to put Davis ahead of Nance, given Nance's place in Cavs' fans hearts, but if you watch the footage, it's hard to dispute.
