Video And Poll After The Jump
Playing defense in the National Basketball Association is a hard task. Opposing players are big, fast and strong, but there's nothing worse than getting posterized.
That's exactly what happened to rookie Ben McLemore of the Sacramento Kings on Friday, December 20, when LeBron James of the Miami Heat welcomed him to the NBA with a thunderous dunk.
The same thing happened to New Orleans Pelicans player Jeff Withey in November when Xavier Henry of the Los Angeles Lakers came down the middle of the paint and put him on a poster with a nasty dunk.
NBA.com just put up a video of the dunks side by side and asked whose was better. The one by 6'6 Henry or the flush by 6'8 King James?
Take a look at the video, vote in our poll, then sound off in the comment section below.
