LeBron James Savors Jason Terry Dunk, Talks Smack After Sensational Slam

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterMarch 20, 2013

If you need LeBron James, he is off marinating on his devastating dunk over Jason Terry. 

Apparently, James is a pretty big fan of the dunk that sent Terry to the floor and had everyone nearly forget all about the plight of Brandon Knight from the week before. 

The Associated Press' Tom Withers caught up with King James, who is absolutely smitten with his slam dunk at the moment:

It's one of my better ones and the fact that it happened to J.T. makes it even that much sweeter because we all know J.T. talks too much sometimes. I'm glad it happened to him.

It goes without saying that James has been sleeping like a baby for the past few nights. The Miami Heat just beat a chatty Boston Celtics team for their 23rd straight win, and it featured the play of the week. 

Of course, any report making even a passing mention of the slam dunk must actually deliver the goods. Here is a play that really never gets old: 

If there is one play Terry may want to erase from his career, this might be it. Of course, the biggest debate at the moment is whether or not this particular dunk trumps the one from DeAndre Jordan on Brandon Knight. 

I still give this to Jordan by a smidgen. 

As for the Boston-Miami rivalry, the Celtics were asked their opinions of the Heat's current winning streak before their loss on Monday. 

First, Paul Pierce offered his thoughts on the Heat, via Complex: "I really don't even care. I hope they lose every game the rest of the season. I just worry about what this team does."

Then Terry chimed in with, "Not really impressed with it or anything that they do."

Of course, opposing players are going to find a moment to salt every last part of the winning streak. We wouldn't expect less.

However, I have a follow-up question for Terry. Was he finally impressed as he looked up at the man who just dunked on him?
