LeBron James made another strong case for being the most athletic player in the NBA. During the Miami Heat’s battle against the Chicago Bulls, James completed an awe-inspiring dunk that will be remembered as one of the top plays of his career.

While leading the Bulls in the first quarter, the Heat’s Dwyane Wade threw an alley-oop pass to his All-Star teammate, James. The only obstacle in James way was the Bulls 5-foot-11 guard, John Lucas III.

James jumped over Lucas and caught the basketball with one hand for the throw down dunk.

The Heat eventually outlasted the Chicago Bulls 97-93. James finished with 35 points and Rose lead the Bulls with 34 points. –amir shaw
