LeBron James does Karl Malone tribute with dunk

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James paid tribute to one of the NBA’s greats on Tuesday night in the team’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Cavs had a two-on-none opportunity, and instead of taking the easy layup, J.R. Smith dished the ball to James.

James then threw down the “Mailman” dunk, paying his respects to Karl Malone, and he nailed it perfectly.
