R.J. Hampton wants to dunk on LeBron James

Many young players in the NBA dream of making a big play against a superstar. R.J. Hampton of the Orlando Magic is no exception.

The 21-year-old point guard revealed he wants to dunk on LeBron James and has a back story why. Turns out it stems from a chasedown block he received from the four-time NBA champion.

โ€œItโ€™s cliche, but Bron. I have a reason though,โ€ Hampton said on fubo Sports. โ€œItโ€™s because when we were playing in LA and I think I got a steal on Russ and Iโ€™m dribbling the ball down, dribbling the ball down, I think Austin Reaves is on my shoulder and I bump him off and Iโ€™m right there at the rim about to just lay it p and just get back on defense.

โ€œBron came out of nowhere. I didnโ€™t see him. No one said anything. It was just like he flew from the other site and I seen that clip so many times. It was used on commercials, it was used โ€ฆ social media.

โ€œIt just pisses me off every time I see it. So thatโ€™s why. Iโ€™m mad because I didnโ€™t dunk him. My dad always is like โ€˜Why didnโ€™t you dunk it?โ€™ I was like โ€˜I didnโ€™t see him coming at all.โ€™ โ€ฆ Him or probably I would say [Rudy] Gobert.โ€
