Photo: JR Smith reacts courtside to Lakers star LeBron James’ poster dunk vs. Kings
Remember the old “We Are All Witnesses” LeBron James campaign Nike run more than a decade ago? JR Smith and the rest of the Staples Center crowd were definitely witnesses to the Los Angeles Lakers forward’s phenomenal dunk over Nemanja Bjelica.
All James’ former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate could do was stand with his mouth unhinged as he saw the 34-year-old James elevate against the 6’10” Bjelica.

It’s hard not to react the same way Smith did whenever James does something that defies all logic. He defied gravity and aging with the way he slammed the ball over Bjelica’s head
James is already past his peak and should now be on a decline. However, the fall of his performances is nothing like those of his peers: while a lot of them experienced harsh falls in production, his numbers are still among the league-best. His form is like a feather gently falling all the way to the ground.
