LeBron James put on his own little dunk contest in Miami Heat practice on Monday.

A shirtless 'King James' demonstrated his ariel prowess and viscous throw down ability to his teammates and Dwyane Wade even captured the events on video for LeBron to see for himself.

Joseph Goodman reported that: "Someone asked Wade today how LeBron would do in the dunk contest. LeBron cut in and answered for Wade: "I'd win." 

He then followed on by reporting what Wade said about LeBron being in the dunk contest: "It'd be one of the most watched events of the year besides the Grammys."

It kind of feels like an unnecessary taunt from the reigning MVP, fans are absolutely desperate for the worlds best player to light up the Dunk Contest.

James is currently in his 11th season in the NBA and has yet to participate in the Dunk Contest. 

It is almost a considered a right of passage for an NBA great to compete in it, MJ won it twice, Kobe has won it, Dr J brought it to significance.

Some of the greatest players of all time plied their trade to it at one point or another and the campaign for LeBron to join the festivities just continues to gather pace.

There are some fantastic All-Stars in this years competition looking to re-ignite it back to its glory days, James clearly believes he would win the contest, maybe next year is when the 'King' finally decides to give the people what they want.
