LeBron and the Clippers have made NBA pre-game dunks more exciting than the NBA dunk contest this year but it’s not because of the dunks it’s because of the dunker. Here’s a run of the mill 360 that will have many people saying this dunk was better than dunks in the NBA contest….and it wasn’t. This dunk deserves a 7 at best and doesn’t even compete with a missed James White dunk. But people want to see All-stars making average dunks not “average” players making All-Star dunks.
We all remember Blake and his overrated dunk over a KIA in the 2011 NBA dunk contest but not many remember the 360 dunk he did in the first round that I bet wont even make you excited one bit right now.

If you want to see some impressive practice dunks by Blake then get in his time travelling KIA and go back to this USAB practice.
