LeBron James Dunks Hard to Prove Andre Iguodala Wrong
The Miami Heat beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday evening 111-99 outscoring them 34-17 in the 4th quarter. Though the final score was important, the real story was LeBron James responding to Andre Iguodala’s comment before the game.
Ethan J. Skolnick of The Palm Beach Post says that before the game Iggy described a change in LeBron’s game. “He doesn’t expend too much energy trying to dunk on guys,” Iguodala explained. “He makes the easy play now. He doesn’t go down the lane and windmill in the halfcourt set, or backwards dunk it. It’s just kind of just get the finish. It’s kind of like he’s preserving his body for the long haul.”
Those comments seemed to be a fair observation and LeBron didn’t dispute them when asked to respond before the game. However, LeBron did promise to show Iguodala his comments weren’t going to be accurate Friday night. And he did just that. LeBron got some nice dunks including this awesome alley-oop throwdown from Dwyane Wade:
I know there’s two cliches that would fit in quite well here. Something about Superman’s cape and sleeping dogs. Iguodala shouldn’t have tugged or awakened, not necessarily in that order.
