LeBron James' Highlight Reel Dunk Off Backboard: Heat Star Shines At Ohio Summer League Game (VIDEO)

Fans in Warrensville Heights, Ohio expected to see a run-of-the-mill summer league game over the weekend. But that was before the state's public enemy number one and current Miami Heat star LeBron James decided to make a surprise appearance.

Almost a year after announcing his decision, King James was back in an Ohio gymnasium, this time dazzling fans with his remarkable play and a few highlight reel dunks.

One dunk in particular must have given the Cavs fans in the building flashbacks to James' back-to-back MVP seasons in Cleveland. During a fast break, James threw the ball off the backboard, and then slammed it down with his head nearly rim-level, while running full-speed. While the stuff was most definitely a treat for the fans it attendance, you have to wonder if it also served as a reminder of what could have been.
