The sickest LeBron James slam dunks of this season

SI.com busted out their Top 10 list of best dunks of the season but LeBron only made an appearance once. We think he deserves his own list.

In light of back-to-back losses and right when Miami HEAT fans need a little distracting, SI.com has compiled a list of the Top 10 dunks of the 2013-14 NBA season.

Dunks, like food and air, are vital for our existence. Without them we'd have nothing to tweet about and YouTube would hardly have a place in our lives. The list from SI, with Terrence Ross taking the number one spot, was varied with ridiculous dunks we could simply watch again and again and included the Miami Heat's own LeBron James making an expected appearance.

Whether he was finishing a lob or destroying opponents in his way, James's polarizing dunk over the Kings' Ben McLemore came in at number six. While we could agree that the rookie McLemore's humiliation is a factor in this dunk being so, well, memorable, it was only a portion of what James has done this season.`


Only as recently as last week did we watch a menacing James destroy young Milwaukee Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh giving a beast-like roar afterwards.


Next it's a dunk James would probably rather forget - the one where he broke his nose after taking a whack from Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka. The fact James was hit while driving to the rim and never flinched is what makes this dunk so special and is symbolic of the determination that drives James daily.


It was Christmas Day, however, where the gifts kept coming for Heat fans. Here we were blessed with two King James alley-oop specials against the helpless Los Angeles Lakers.


Again, it was James who showed us that 7-ft Dwight Howard was no match as he found the air to pull of this screamer against the Houston Rockets last month.


Either way, dunks were the winner of the day but more importantly however, what do you think? Have we missed a great dunk? Are there some you thought were better? Let us know or join in on the discussion.
