Video: LeBron James Jumps Over John Lucas III on Alley-Oop


LeBron James literally Frederic Weis’d John Lucas III in the first quarter of today’s big Miami Heat/Chicago Bulls game. Yikes.

  • http://www.nba.com VanCityBBall

    Vincsanity’s dunk over Weis was better… this was great too but just saying that VC’s was over a seven footer not a PG, still props to LBj

    The King has regained his step. His rise.
    It is now official.

    Man, I love how Bron looks like he is going to go punch John in the face for being on the court… God, Lebron is an idiot.

  • Red

    He sure is.

    MAN if Lebron had spead open his legs (pause) instead of bending his knees, it would have been the nastiest dunk of the year.

  • james aka…

    when he does stuff like this, it seems inonceivable that he can be stopped like he was in the playoffs.

    Too many people drinking haterade over here.

  • robb

    ^^^ yeah, absolutely, that dunk was sick, WTF is wrong with you people? that was NBA Jam like.

  • Michelle

    Lebron is choking again. Screws up the last 2 plays and then chokes from the freethrow line

  • RobbieJay

    who won tho? the heat did. he did what he needed to do he just missed some free throws

    Im mad Bron put his future kids on top of lucas’s head like tht

  • Yann Blavec

    Will he jump over a french center (johakim Noah or boris diaw) this summer in london !?

  • Dade County

    Lmao welcome to Miami john lucas. Haters talk all they want but numbers dont lie…Lebron is balling out of his mind this year. That ring is on deck.

  • dev0

    Amazing dunk. Can’t wait to see the poster from the perfect angle

  • 130623

    @michelle but then he had 35pts 11rb 5ast, oh yeah and shot over 50% seriously go find another sport to watch if you think that’s choking!!! It’s not all about the last play of the game, Jesus whether HATERS like it or not LBJ is the MVP so far by a long way too

    There’s no need to compare this with Vince’s in Sydney. Nothing will top that one. This dunk is still great. Athletes — they can do some crazy things.

  • Pais

    Ridiculous, no further analysis required.

  • shutup

    Uhm Rose choked from the free throw line, and the ref almost gave them the ball back on Wades hustle play as well as letting rose get away with a travel before he called timeout. Oh and sick dunk, I thought the defense was dirty though he tried to undercut him by backing up, he didnt even make a play on the ball.

    Wow, people really blinded by their hate. I’m not gonna let them spoil this for me tho. I’m a lebron fan and plays like this get me excited! I’m ranking this as possibly his greatest dunk ever! And maybe the best dunk of the year! I really enjoy watching him play. His talent is amazing. I’m so ecstatic that we have an nba season!

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    Its plays like this that make me wonder what the boston snackbar is up to….
    Word to crash and lang

  • http://anyoldthing Ugh

    First time in a long time I’ve seen a real posterise dunk from LeBron.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    I GUARANTEE he would not have finished that over John Stockton…. : / elbows up…

  • http://www.slamonline.com Dagger

    This was one of the best dunks I’ve seen all year. Especially when you consider that the guy doing it is 270 pounds. Unreal.

  • Jake

    He was on a tear that game, I hate him so much but that dunk was nasty. He’s not the MVP this year though. Back2Back for DRose!

  • Red

    Not impressive when the guy is so small. Let him try that over Deng, the only reason Heat won was cause Deng wasn’t there.

    This don’t hold a candle to VC’s dunk in the Olympics. The Vince jumped over was a seven-footer! But it was a pretty nice dunk.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.l.brewer3 BlackPhantom

    *The guy Vince jumped over in the Olympics

  • mugiwara

    VC’s dunk stands strong.

  • Blakos

    Lucas got teabagged right there……

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    Ugh, You probably missed the game against the Knicks..
    Bill Walker.

  • Kobester

    The King strikes again!! That was an awesome dunk…. And why do the best players always get so much hate….from Shaq, Kobe, to Lebron.

  • Mike

    This guy i unbelievable! He’s the king!

    Looks like he’s getting faster and stronger lately, I guess he found about the “truth about quickness” huh?


    Thanks for this awesome video guys.

  • Lp

    I don’t see what’s impressive about this dunk…. Lebron is 6’8… Lucas is 5’8. Decent dunk, but it wasn’t facial, and Lucas sort of just ran under him…. That Damon Jones joint from a few years back was sick tho

  • http://www.slamonline.com big_ticket

    damn nasty ouch,i’ll see this in slamadamonth btw

  • http://slamonline.com BALLEROFTHEYEAR

    Nasty dunk. Bron’s been tearin it up this year. So unneccesary to mean mug Lucas after the dunk tho haha. He’s like the smallest guy out there and Bron is mean muggin the sh*t out of him.

  • Mooney10

    If I pulled a dunk like that, I’d mean mug all day!!! Plus Lucas tried to under cut him and got obliterrated for it, mean muggin continues… Lebron is the best this League has to offer hands down, another MVP season is taking place. P.S. How cna you not mean mug after that cram?

  • Mariano Cairo

    Stop Comparing this to VC dunk!
    John Lucas is still TALLER than a KIA!

  • LA Huey

    Play of the year. Haters sit down.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeLRym4Q-pg nbk

    ^ Cosign. It’s pretty pathetic so many people have to hate for no real reason. This was crazy. He jumped over a full-grown man like it was nothing. Most of us can’t even clear our couch.

  • j edgar duder

    Vince split his legs, this dude straight up jumped over john lucas…one of the greatest dunks in NBA history right here!

  • quest

    thats some stuff u do before practice… gosh its not lebrons best but wow… after 8 or 9 seasons hes still doing this. when will he start to lose his athleticism?

  • http://www.coachesclipboard.net/FlexOffense.html nbk

    He’s 27

  • KR

    yeah. vince’s dunk was nasty, and has to be the best in the history of the olympics. but keep in mind he propped himself with his hand. lebron straight jumped over a guy to snatch a loose ball from mid-air. he only makes it look easy. his head was level with the ring. after hurdling someone. the control, the timing. if you hate this dunk, you hate basketball.

  • SO SO

    ^ I would add:

    If you hate this dunk, or just want to rant about LeBron not being perfect (since apparently that’s required), you probably hate yourself

    Comments like ‘Lebron is choking’, etc. shows the mind of someone that is insecure, miserable or thinks anyone less than perfect is a loser. That translates to self-hatred showing itself as projection.
