Incredible photo shows just how hard LeBron James dunks a basketball
The Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Toronto Raptors by 31 points in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals and along the way LeBron James annihilated a basketball and the rim.
The dunk came in the first period on what seemed like an easy dunk after a nice pass. This is a pretty standard dunk for LeBron.
Here is a closer look. Ouch!
LeBron actually had another dunk mid-way through the second period that looked even more damaging as James was seemingly making a concerted effort to attack the basket. It had James screaming and the Cavs' bench dancing as he threw it down with authority.
