If you blinked, you might have missed it. After a whistle during the Cavaliers' 120-90 NBA Finals Game 3 slaughter of the Warriors, Stephen Curry attempted a dunk. He was then stuffed by LeBron James.
Poor Steph, who has been underwhelming all series, was trying to gain some confidence with his team down 19 points in the third quarter and the King rejected him. James went on to tally 32 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. Curry only mustered 19 points and three assists.
Nonetheless, this is an awesome image. Curry, the two-time reigning MVP, and James, the four-time MVP, are arguably the greatest players in the game, and watching this one-on-one NBA Finals moment, even if it does not count, is beautiful.
James also had a dunk of his own that counted. It was pretty cool too.

Hmmm…this series is getting interesting. Game 4 is in Cleveland on Friday night with the Warriors leading the series, 2-1.
