I dream I move, I dream I groove, LIKE MIKE: Evolution of the Leaner Dunk ft. MJ, Kobe, Westbrook, and Joel Embiid. The first clip shows Michael Jordan capping off an OT victory against the Sonics in 1988. He had an off night and was angry so stole the ball with 10 seconds left and performed the prototypical leaner dunk (I just posted an edit of this game last week). Kobe's is probably the weakest on here. If somebody can help pinpoint which season and game this was from, that'd be great because I don't know when it's from. I do know it's either from '98 or '99. Then we see Russell Westbrook, who has taken the leaner dunk to an entirely new level. Any description I write won't do what he does justice. People use adjectives like "insane" all the time on here, but it's use is justified when talking about this guy. It looks like he actually wants the ball to bounce back and hit his head when slamming it against the rim on those dunks. The final clip shows Sixers rookie Joel Embiid from tonight's (Jan 16 2017) comeback win over Giannis and the Bucks. He's performing a leaner dunk at 7'2" AFTER GETTING STIFF ARMED IN THE HEAD.

Jan 19 2009: Kobe and LeBron guard each other and hit shots for the ages on Martin Luther King Day 2009. Kobe injured what was already a dislocated ring finger on his shooting hand while guarding LeBron with 10:30 left in the 1st quarter. The Lakers entered the game 31-8, the Cavs 31-7. The Lakers entered this season more determined than ever after making it to the Finals and losing to the Celtics. Kobe Bryant was the reigning league MVP. The Cavs had made it to the Finals and lost to the Spurs the year before that. They would finish the 2009 season with the two best records in the league, the Cavs at 66-16 and the Lakers at 65-17. LeBron would win the first of his 4 MVP's this season. He and Kobe would be named to the All-NBA 1st Team and All-NBA Defensive 1st Team. It was a time when talk had begun as to who the best player in the world was. Was it still Kobe Bryant, or had the ascendant LeBron James surpassed him? LeBron always brought his A-game whenever playing against Kobe in LA. In fact, I don't know what the numbers would say, but I don't think LeBron has ever played as well against a team as he used to whenever he played the Lakers. We can also see Kobe's inventiveness going up against the larger LeBron, who should himself be commended for even attempting to guard Kobe, the quicker, lighter player. Kobe was in his 13th season, LeBron in his 6th. LA won 105-88 and handed Cleveland their biggest loss of the season up to that point.

Will they blow another lead?πŸ€”πŸ˜¬ #MLk

The Lakers will be in their Classic Jerseys tomorrow against the Nuggets to honor the 1987 team sweeping the Nuggets in the first round.
-
The last time the Lakers wore the jerseys, they beat the Warriors by 20. Hopefully that luck carries on.
