LeBron throws down the reverse dunk over John Henson (VIDEO)

Mar 16, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

LeBron James can do this to just about anyone, so there’s no shame in Bucks rookie John Henson being on the wrong end of this reverse dunk while trying to contest it.

What’s striking about the play, however, is how little space James seems to have to pull this one off — first as he’s toeing the baseline, then when going up on the other side of the rim. Henson appeared to be at least close enough to bother James, but as we’ve seen countless times over the years, LeBron sees only the rim, and attacks it accordingly.

    Speaking of throw down… why doesn’t LeBron comment on Sharon Reed?

    Nice dunk but he took about one step too many to get there. It was clearly a travel.

      he took his last dribble while stepping, then took two steps. so not really but Lebron travels a ridiculous amount.

        Who doesn’t in the NBA?

    Straight nasty.

    Still, for me the play of the night was the full court heave that Chalmers saved inbounds to Wade, who finished the play ferociously.

    It’s hard to choose, though, seeing as the Heat produce such an abundance of amazing plays each night.
