VIDEO: Lakers’ LeBron James spices up tomahawk dunk with behind-the-back dribble

LeBron James, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James got a little fancy on Sunday night during the third quarter of the All-Star Game inside the United Center.

The NBA’s assist leader this season (10.8 per game) opted to take it for himself at the five-minute mark of the penultimate period, freezing Khris Middelton’s defense with a nice behind-the-back dribble move on a fast break.

James had his fellow Klutch Sports stablemate Ben Simmons streaking on the left side and perhaps waiting for a lob. Instead, the 35-year-old Lakers megastar dazzled the fans with some nifty ball-handling followed by his signature right-handed tomahawk hammer.

Playing in his 16th consecutive All-Star Game, LeBron James now holds the most starts in the mid-season spectacle’s history after surpassing the late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

LeBron earned his 16th All-Star star on Sunday, breaking the tie with Kobe who had 15 All-Star starts in his 20-year career.
