LeBron James still had his athleticism in year 14 of his illustrious career. Case in point, this slam off a dribble move against the New Orleans Pelicans.
King James started this play with a 1-on-3 disadvantage on a fast break. Without a worry, LeBron gathered the ball from mid-range and eurostepped between two of the defenders. The King then jumped from inside the paint with Dante Cunningham challenging him. The vertical leap was still there for James and the Cleveland Cavaliers legend easily jumped over Dante for a right-handed slam dunk. With the Quicken Loans Arena crowd buzzing, LeBron just looked over at Cunningham and shook his head as if to say “shouldn’t have jumped.”
The sneakers James rocked for this poster dunk was the Nike LeBron 14. This shoe featured articulated Hex Zoom units in the forefoot and mid-foot. A larger Zoom Air unit is featured in the heel, combining for a bouncy, responsive feel throughout. The laser perforated upper added breathability to the shoe, while also helping with a closer fit to the foot. The dynamic mid-foot strap offered a natural stretch that helped provide lockdown for your foot.
