VIDEO: Was This LeBron James’ Final Pregame Dunk Exhibition?

Not sure what all the hoopla is about here.

Not sure what all the hoopla is about here. That's a dunk we've seen a million times before from him in the open court. In his prime James White regularly performed the same slam from the charity stripe and in Shanghai Paul George threw in a dash of 360 flavor. However, due to the backlash he's received from fans who'd rather watch him elevate and flush on All-Star Saturday night, James caved into public pressure and declared to the media throng that Tuesday night's pregame dunkfest would be his last.

"Maybe I should stop because it's making a lot of people mad about what I do," James said after he scored a season-high 40 points and had a career-high 16 assists in Tuesday's double-overtime win against Sacramento. "They're like, 'Well, if you can do it in warmups, why don't you (want to) be in the dunk contest? Stop it.'" — ESPN.com
