This is probably not how Sacramento King’s Ben McLemore wanted his rookie campaign to be highlighted. During the first quarter of Friday’s Heat-Kings game, McLemore thought it would be wise to take a charge on LeBron, and unfortunately for him, fell victim to one of the best dunks of Bron’s career.
Here’s what the two guys said after the the dunk:
LeBron: “It sucks that it’s him,” James said of the rookie out of Kansas, “because I like him. I knew I could get to the launching pad.”
McLemore: “I just went over there to try to take the charge. He dunked the ball. Afterwards, I thought I should have just fouled him.”
