He may wear a #6 Miami Heat jersey, but LeBron James is still our native son here in Akron, Ohio, so much so that every time I drive by that sign in neighboring Fairlawn on West Market Street (the one that hasn't been stolen like previous ones were years ago when James was still a member of the Cavs) now touting James as an NBA champion -- I vow to take a pic of it with my iPad and publish a piece titled, "Proof that Cleveland-Akron has forgiven LeBron for leaving."
Look for that one coming soon…
Right now, check out this "Miami Heat pre game Jam Session. Sick LeBron dunk" YouTube video if you haven't seen it already. It's swelled to more than 2 million views in a short time, and although it's from afar off (and obviously filmed with a fan's iPad facing the vertical direction due to the letterbox effect), you can still see the broad strokes of what ESPN says is James "whipping the ball behind his back, then between his legs before he tossed it off the backboard for a dunk over 6-foot-10 teammate Rashard Lewis."
Of course that would've been a game wherein they played against Cleveland.
Anyway, according to ESPN, Bron Bron just might stop with all the pre-game dunking because he's now getting criticism for not showing off those same moves (or even better slams) in the dunk contest.
I hope he doesn't stop pre-game dunking.
And never quit dancing, LeBron. Don't stop.
Speaking of which, have you guys seen the "LeBron James dancing during a timeout (You didn't see this one on TV)" YouTube video that my husband filmed when he took our nephew to the game and scored great seats?
That one has grown passed one million views now. I just love to hear my hubby laugh in that one. He says LeBron was looking right at him, hamming it up for the videocamera.
James might not spend a ton of time online and not know how viral his pre-game dunk videos have become -- but he can in fact dance. And he sure as shootin' can dunk.
Us fans love the acrobatics in both, no matter where you live.
