Blast to the past: The day LeBron dunked all over Jusuf Nurkic

LeBron James is the king (pun intended) of pulling off posterizing dunks.

Remember when he dunked on Kevin Garnett in Game 4 of the 2008 Eastern Conference semifinals?  Or that time when he dunked on former Miami Heat guard Damon Jones? No one can forget when he ruthlessly posterized Jason Terry during a March regular season game in 2013.

Another one of James’ best dunks happened two years ago. It was during James’ last regular season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they were playing the Portland Trail Blazers on March 15, 2018.

James drove down the lane against Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic, and he slammed one of his most ruthless dunks ever.

Even in season 17, James has added to his collection of poster or near-poster dunks. During a recent game against the New Orleans Pelicans, James blew past former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Josh Hart for a jam.

With the NBA’s season currently suspended, Nurkic’s return to the floor was put on hold. Nurkic was slated to return Sunday against the Houston Rockets, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Nurkic has been out with a left leg injury since March 2019.
