Ben McLemore has played 24 career NBA games, but it wasn’t until his 25th that the rookie truly had his “welcome to the league” moment.
During the first quarter of Friday’s Miami Heat-Sacramento Kings game, LeBron James just destroyed McLemore with a vicious dunk. The dude almost got Mozgov’d.
Let’s give McLemore credit for trying to take the charge in the situation. He’s a brave soul. But he will also go down in the long chapter of victims of LeBron’s huge slams.
By the way, that was a heck of a job by the Kings with their defensive switch after the high pick.
This photo of the dunk is outstanding:
