I know the real reason why Lebron has never competed in a dunk contest.
Actually there are.
1- His ego couldn’t take losing.
2- He isn’t that creative of a dunker.
He is a power dunker with incredible leaping ability, but not a lot of creativity. The dunk contest is about doing things that have never been seen before. Seeing Lebron doing a Tomahawk isn’t going to excite anyone.
Plus if he enters the dunk contest he is going to be expected to win and he isn’t the type like Dwight Howard to take it in stride if he loses to a Nate Robinson type player.
He has been making excuses since he has been in the league, his latest one is he doesn’t want to compete with Blake Griffin.
LeBron told reporters that he’s torn on whether to enter the dunk contest this season. Blake is a reason why.
James noted that competing against the likes of Blake Griffin would be a challenge and says, “he’s already got the home court advantage.”
We know that when it comes to tough challenges Lebron will try to get help, so maybe D Wade can compete for him. Griffin wouldn’t be the favorite because it is in LA, he would be the favorite cause he is a MONSTER.
In the end Lebron won’t want his Cornbread taken and he will find a convenient excuse or seven not to compete.
