Pregame warm-ups have been entertaining for Heat fans lately. Mainly because LeBron James decided that he would use warm-ups as his personal dunk contest.
Of course, people complained that he should be doing these dunks in the real dunk contest because people always think it’s about what they want. And in response to the complaints, LeBron has threatened to send his pregame dunk routine.
Here are his comments via ESPN:
Maybe I should stop because it’s making a lot of people mad about what I do,” James said after he scored a season-high 40 points and had a career-high 16 assists in Tuesday’s double-overtime win against Sacramento. “They’re like, ‘Well, if you can do it in warm-ups, why don’t you [want to] be in the dunk contest?’ Stop it.’
Meanwhile, Miami Heat owner Micky Arison is hoping LeBron never ends the pregame show because he’s actively promoting it on his Twitter in an effort to get fans to games earlier.

Someone should probably tell LeBron that Micky Arison needs this to continue so he can sell some tickets.
