LeBron 'glad' Celts' Terry was his dunk victim
LeBron James wasn't just satisfied with dunking over Jason Terry. On Wednesday, he threw it in the Boston guard's face again.
The NBA's ruling MVP said he ranks his monster dunk over Terry on Monday night as one of his best, and that it's one of his favorites because of his history with the talkative Celtics guard.
``I've had a chance to (review) it and it was one of my better ones,'' James said at the Heat's morning shootaround. ``The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter because we all know J.T. and he talks too much sometimes.
``I'm glad it happened to him.''
Late in the first half in Boston, James soared and grabbed a lob pass before smashing it over a helpless Terry, who couldn't defend himself in the lane against the onrushing 6-foot-8, 260-pound superstar. After the ball crashed through the rim, James stared and walked toward Terry, who was sprawled on the parquet floor.
The monster dunk is regarded as one of the league's best this season, ranking with the one Clippers center DeAndre Jordan recently delivered over Detroit's Brandon Knight.
James said his problems with Terry date back several years. James said Terry committed a flagrant foul on him when the guard was with Atlanta. Terry was also very talkative during the 2011 NBA Finals as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, who defeated James and the Heat in six games.
