WATCH: LeBron James spins 360 degrees on his way to the basket

The Miami Heat star turned the ball over and had time to do a pretty pirouette en route to a two pointer.

ARE THE MIAMI Heat just too good not to win the NBA Championship this year?

Sure their record is not quite as good as the Chicago Bulls, but when these guys turn on the style it is something to behold.

Last night they won again, an 89-86 victory over the sixth seeded Atlanta Hawks.

That was down, in no small part, to Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh et al. But LeBron James just keeps stepping up and making jaws drop.

A quick steal on his own three-point line gave him the run of the court. With all that time and space, King James could not have settled for a run-of-the-mill running slam dunk.

Instead, he put on his own spin on things.
