LeBron James missed an open alley-oop, and it was still beautiful

Can’t win ‘em all, right?

LeBron James soared past Jerryd Bayless and caught a lob pass with one hand before almost annihilating the rim with what could have been one of the most graceful alley-oop finishes this year. But The King proved yet again that he is a mere mortal, and was unable to flush the dunk.

LeBron clanked the finish right off the front of the rim. It was the second time he blew a gorgeous dunk this season after bricking a wide open windmill in transition against the Nets on Nov. 22.

It happens to the best of us, LeBron, it happens to the best of us.
