LeBron throws down the vicious alley-oop in Game 1 against Pacers (VIDEO)

May 18, 2014, 4:07 PM EDT

There weren’t a lot of highlights for the Heat during the first quarter of Game 1 against the Pacers, considering Indiana put up 30 points in the period while knocking down 5-of-6 from three-point distance and leading by as many as 10 in the early going.

But this one from LeBron James, who threw down a vicious alley-oop slam after a nice feed from Mario Chalmers, is worth taking a look at more than once.

    Yeah that was a nice two points but whatever.

    Why does this even matter?

    I can’t smore the big 3. I think the fact that they had to basically cheater the system to win championships is really bad for basketball. I know the Celts got their big three, but mostly via trade. The league would be much more entertaining without the heat. And much more competitive.

      Why can’t you accept that there’s different ways to build a team? The only “right” way is whichever way wins championships. Nobody cheated anything.

        Correct. It’s not cheating to acquire players via free agency, and it certainly hasn’t been bad for the NBA – ratings spiked in the season after the Big 3 was formed.

        The best eras for the NBA in terms of ratings have been dynasty eras. Celtics Lakers in the 1980’s, Bulls in the 1990s, etc.

        I think its funny he complains about being underpaid. Rigging the odds in ur favor has never been construed as cheating. Good point.

      You act as if the Heat have just dominated the league. They lost in 6 to Dallas in the Finals, beat a Thunder team that clearly wasn’t ready for the big stage and barely beat the Spurs in a series they should’ve lost in 6 games. Hardly the makings of domination.

      • rpmcc116 - May 18, 2014 at 6:04 PM

        3straight finals appearances and an ECF for a possible 4th in 4 tries. 2 out the last 3 championships. Not very dominant at all. Okc still isn’t ready either.

      • kb2408 - May 18, 2014 at 6:48 PM

        3 straight trips to the ECF “only” because the East has stunk for the last few years. And don’t worry too much about OKC, Miami won’t be facing them in the Finals because Miami won’t be there.

    Can’t stand.

    2 points, only 16 moe to go

  6. tampajoey - May 18, 2014 at 5:14 PM

    When the Heat lose the game will it really matter?

  7. cantonbound13 - May 18, 2014 at 5:44 PM

    PEDs

    And then James’ team lost.
