Videos: LeBron James’ Top 40 Dunks

On his 27th birthday, we celebrate The King with a gallery of highlights.

It seems like yesterday 18-year-old LeBron James was getting ready to play his first ever NBA game against the Sacramento Kings, with a chip on his shoulder, the city of Cleveland on his back and a kill-or-be-killed mentality on his mind. But that was nine years ago (crazy how time flies, right?). Today, Bron Bron turns 27 as a member of the Miami Heat, and to celebrate we’ve compiled the best 40 dunks of his career to date. James and the Heat travel to the Twin Cities to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight, and if history is any indication, expect Bron to go bonkers. In four previous birthday games, James averages 35.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists. One of the greatest players our League has ever seen, James has arguably been the face of the NBA since his entry in 2003. Hate him or love him, that’s up to you. But there’s no denying Bron is one of the greatest to ever step foot on the hardwood, and he’s still in the thick of his prime. So take a moment and bask in all The King’s best throwdowns. Happy born day, LeBron! Eldon Khorshidi

  • robb

    Lebron’s a great athlete but he’s not a very original dunker. His style is pretty boring to be honest.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Someone holler at me with this idiot stops plaguing every page.

  • logues

    not that great of a list. y’all missed a few of brons best dunks ever on here, like the one vs new york, the one on brian cook, on eddie griffin, and the double pump baseline vs dallas… too many from the heat

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Why, he doesn’t dunk on folks. Slow news day. BOOK IT!!

  • http://knicks.com Gametimeweezy

    Number 9 reminded me of Dr J…. the rest make me miss Shawn Kemp. Power and agility.

  • birdman

    of course the top 3 are the worst quality…

  • BigBlue

    lol at the face mask at the end!

  • tonyknorr

    cosign logues. that double pump along two hander from the baseline against the mavs was one of the best in game dunks i have ever seen. absolutely thunderous.

  • Jono

    21 is fu(king ridiculous.

  • Jono

  • meloman2.0

    This list is missing a few dunks… particularily the one in Charlotte in his 2nd or third year


    I don’t discriminate like Amare , Dr.J , T-Mac, Robert Pack, should be there too ^^^ where’s your list dawg ? ^^^


    Damn. Chris Bosh’s hilarious dunk is # 1 of the week on NBa.com . Correy Magette got robbed.

  • awkward

    Love how the top ten he was in a cleveland jersey.

  • hagekg

    His dribble spin move is sexier than a ballerina…..

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    Crazy to think that he actually had slightly more lift when he was in Cle.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Mars

    Am I the only one who misses LeBron in a Cleveland jersey? Miami is nice, but it just doesn’t feel right. He’s still one of the best athletes ever, to be televised. We all know a guy or two in the hood who was nice but never got signed.

  • Niio

    Peep how much of the floor Bron covers in #26! Check out where he jumps from and then where he lands… He lands on the basket support!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/hurstysyd Hursty

    Nahhh.. way too many Heat highlights here. Ratio should be 5:1 Cavs:Heat videos.


    True. Someone needs to do the top 100 to balance it out. Quick , B 4 it’s too late !! :-)

  • Mike

    couldnt u guys have edited this together or something?!? this is pretty lazy.

  • Mburb321

    Ahhh the Cleveland days, good times..when Bron was actually likable.
