During Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers had a fantastic overall performance. But near the end of the first quarter, the four-time MVP felt a rare moment of embarrassment: a major slam dunk fail with nobody guarding him.
The Cavs point guard picked off a pass intended for Nets center Jarrett Allen. Already in motion towards the opposite end of the court, LeBron James blazed towards the hoop with Allen and former Cavalier Joe Harris in lazy pursuit. The King leaped in the air and began the motion for a windmill dunk. However, he seemingly either did not get enough air, or didn't finish the move quick enough; the ball bricked off the back of the rim and flew sky-high into the air. Harris regained possession.
