LeBron James can do this to just about anyone, so there’s no shame in Bucks rookie John Henson being on the wrong end of this reverse dunk while trying to contest it.
What’s striking about the play, however, is how little space James seems to have to pull this one off — first as he’s toeing the baseline, then when going up on the other side of the rim. Henson appeared to be at least close enough to bother James, but as we’ve seen countless times over the years, LeBron sees only the rim, and attacks it accordingly.

NBA All-Star voting is over, and now we have the results. The starters are in, and what’s left is for us to wait until they announce the teams after they are picked in double secret ceremony.
Of course, the NBA did release the full voting results via their PR website this week, and as such there are some head scratchers. My boy Patrick Redford over at Deadspin did an excellent job rounding up some of the players who got exactly one (1) vote from other players.
The gag here is that these guys presumably voted for themselves.
players who got exactly one all-star vote that was definitely them voting for themselves:
– Nerlens Noel – Gerald Green – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Mario Hezonja – Kosta Koufas – Cam Payne – Langston Galloway – Luke Kennard
