Jeremy Evans Calls out LeBron James
Jeremy Evans might have been outscored 30-2 by LeBron James on Saturday. But there’s something Evans says he has on the Miami Heat star.
The Utah Jazz forward is the defending NBA slam-dunk champion. He has no doubt who would win if he had the chance to take on James.
“I’m going to say I would,” said Evans, whose Jazz fell 105-89 to Miami at AmericanAirlines Arena. “I haven’t seen any tricks from him yet because he hasn’t been in (an NBA) dunk contest. … You need the tricks and moves rather than just being a power dunker in a game.”
For starters, it’s not going to happen.
“No,” said James, who turns 28 on Dec. 30. “It’s over with. I’m getting too old for that. … There were times when I wanted to do it. But I came into All-Star Weekend a few times banged up and I didn’t want to risk further injury.”
“I’m not a dunk-contest guy, so he probably could beat me in a dunk contest,” James said. “I’m OK with that.”
