Though the Cleveland Cavaliers sat basically their entire rotation on Sunday against the Wizards, not just their stars but their key reserves as well, Jeff Green put on a show of his own with possibly the best dunk of the NBA preseason. He skied well above the rim to posterize Ian Mahinmi in a highlight that quickly made its rounds on social media. Capital One Arena was buzzing after the slam.
Part of why the video of Green's dunk was so good was because of the reaction from the Cavaliers' bench. They all went absolutely nuts. Even Isaiah Thomas, bad hip and all, was out of his seat to celebrate:
LeBron James was among the Cavs going crazy, but that video didn't capture all of his celebration. Apparently not playing allowed him to have some real fun on the sidelines.
In photos capture by both USA Today Sports and the Associated Press, LeBron could be seen using a Greene Turtle restaurant menu as a prop. The pictures are hilarious:
We'll go ahead and assume he ordered the Crab Dribble... er... crab dip. Also, remember that LeBron has a penchant for using props:

The NBA is so much fun.
