LeBron Won the NBA Dunk Contest Last Night

Oh, so it's a dunk contest you want America? Well then, by all means, a dunk contest you shall have!

LeBron followed up a day of butt hurt talking heads bashing him for not participating in their silly, outdated, doesn't count, nobody will remember in a week exhibition with a real live in-game display of his badassery dunknasity. The neat thing about this dunk contest, it didn't require Dr. J or a boy band member holding up an over-sized index card with a "10" on it, a folding chair, or the bumper of a KIA. Game over. LeBron wins.

As for the game itself, the Heat pulled away late to beat the Suns 103-97. LeBron finished with another absurd stat line, dropping 37 points, nine rebounds, and five steals in the win. Chris Bosh stepped up in Dwyane Wade's absence (migraine) to score 21 points on 8-11 shooting, to go along with grab eight rebounds.

Tonight the Heat face the Golden State Warriors, tip is at 10:30, because time zones. Get that good Heat nap in Miami.
