Incredible LeBron James reverse dunk photo goes viral

LeBron James will turn 36 later this year, but the four-time NBA MVP proved on Thursday night that he is still capable of electrifying a crowd — and a camera lens — with his freak athleticism.

LeBron had a rough night in a 121-11 loss to the Houston Rockets, as he scored just 18 points and went 1-of-8 from three-point range. However, he did spring free for a breakaway dunk at one point, and he did not disappoint. LeBron threw down a reverse jam that led to one of the best in-game photos you will ever see.

That’s about as close to walking on air as it gets. Here are a couple angles of the dunk itself:

Needless to say, the dude has still got it.

LeBron prides himself on remaining in tremendous shape, and he has reminded us of that on multiple occasions with his thoughts on load management. The fact that he is still playing at such a high level at his age is probably one of the most underrated parts of his legacy, but that photo from Thursday’s game is a nice refresher.

LeBron James Looks To Have Drafted A Super-Team For The NBA All-Star Game

Captains LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks have selected the team rosters for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, and it looks like LeBron has a super-team on his hands.

James selected Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic and James Harden as his starters, and also has Damian Lillard, Ben Simmons, Nikola Jokic, Jayson Tatum, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and Domantas Sabonis on his squad.

Antetokounmpo’s starters include Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Kemba Walker and Trae Young, while his reserves include Jimmy Butler, Rudy Gobert and Kyle Lowry.

The 69th NBA All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 16 at the United Center in Chicago, airing live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT and ESPN Radio in the United States. NBA All-Star 2020 will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in nearly 50 languages on their televisions, computers, mobile phones and tablets.

James and Antetokounmpo drafted the NBA All-Star Game team rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference. The two captains made 11 picks each – four starters and seven reserves – without regard to a player’s conference affiliation or position.

Both NBA All-Star Game teams will play for a Chicago-based charity beneficiary, as selected by James and Antetokounmpo. Team LeBron will play for Chicago Scholars, a nonprofit leadership development organization that empowers academically ambitious students from under-resourced communities to complete college and become the next generation of leaders. Team Giannis will play for After School Matters, a nonprofit organization that provides life-changing after-school and summer program opportunities to nearly 19,000 Chicago teenagers each year.

As part of the new format for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, the two teams will compete to win each quarter for their designated charities.

Team Giannis will wear the red Jordan Brand NBA All-Star 2020 uniforms and Team LeBron will wear the blue Jordan Brand NBA All-Star 2020 uniforms. As previously announced, Team Giannis will wear No. 24 and Team LeBron will wear No. 2 – the basketball jersey numbers of the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, respectively. Both teams will wear jersey patches displaying nine stars, representing Kobe, Gianna and their seven friends and teammates who tragically passed away in a helicopter accident on Jan. 26.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will select the replacement for any player unable to participate in the All-Star Game, choosing a player from the same conference as the player who is being replaced. Silver’s selection would join the team that drafted the replaced player. If a replaced player is a starter, the head coach of that team would name a new starter from his team’s group of reserves. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel will lead Team LeBron, and Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse will guide Team Giannis. .
