LeBron James Posterizes Jusuf Nurkic with Vicious Slam

Rob Goldberg@TheRobGoldbergFeatured ColumnistMarch 16, 2018

LeBron James is 33 years old, but he turned back the clocks with a huge dunk Thursday.

In the first quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Cleveland Cavaliers star threw down a thunderous slam over Jusuf Nurkic, showing he still has plenty of athleticism despite being in his 15th NBA season.

James' individual numbers have been impressive this season. He's averaging 26.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and a career-high 9.0 assists per game. However, he hasn't showcased this type of dunk since earlier in his career.

Not only will this dunk make the highlight reels throughout the week, it could also cause defenders to think twice when going up to defend the four-time MVP.
