In LeBron James’s 19-season, record-breaking career, he has had a ton of moments that are highlight-worthy. But, in the first half of Thursday night’s Western Conference Finals, he had a clip that will be played for all the wrong reasons.
Midway through the 2nd quarter, the Lakers led by 8. And, they thought they were going to lead by more, but LeBron James messed up a one-on-zero fast break while trying to windmill.
NAH THIS GAME IS RIGGED
HAS LEBRON EVER MISSED A DUNK LIKE THIS?! pic.twitter.com/oOOjEsgFXa

I’ve never seen him do that in his whole career. He missed another layup, too, costing the Lakers 4 points in the first half.
Twitter was all over LeBron James for the missed dunk.
LeBron gotta make up for those 4 points he cost us lol

The only way I’ll care about that LeBron layup is if we lose by 2 lol

I think for the rest of the series, LeBron James will make sure he gets the two points.
