Thanks Lang. You probably just made LeBron circle a few more days on his calendar with a note saying “remember to shut down and dunk on that NBA rookie.”
The question Lang Whitaker had for the first years pros was “what NBA player do you most want to dunk on.” Julius Randle picked his teammate Kobe. Aaron Gordon, who will probably dunk on more players than any other rookie, played it safe and didn’t name any names. JaVale got a vote. Blake Griffin got a few votes and LeBron got a few more.
Lang should have told them that if you dunk on LeBron then Nike and the NBA aren’t going to like it. Nike wont be able to confiscate the footage like they did with Jordan Crawford’s dunk on LeBron but the NBA can make sure they don’t show many replays or post it on nba.com.
With that said, the NBA did post these 2 dunks last season.
Wiggins didn’t name LeBron but I bet you were hoping he was going to say it.
