LeBron James jumped OVER 6ft 5in Ben McLemore for this slam dunk last night

“Sucks that it was him, too,” consoled King James after Miami Heat scorched Sacramento Kings.

THE MIAMI HEAT ran away from the Sacremento Kings in the third quarter of their NBA clash last night before closing out a 122-103 win.

Chris Bosh scored a team-high 25 points for the Heat and Dwyane Wade chipped in with 20 points and five rebounds. The star of the show, however, was LeBron James as he vaulted 6ft 5in Kings rookie point guard Ben McLemore to slam home this outrageous dunk:

The forward told Associated Press, “Sucks that it was him, too. I like him. I’ve been talking to him since he was in high school.”

James enjoyed posterising McLemore so much that he took Wade for a wheelbarrow ride during a post-game TV interview with Bosh.
