LeBron James viciously throws down on JaVale McGee in Game 1 dunk fest with Warriors

Game 1 of the much-anticipated 2017 NBA Finals started out as a clinic on bad basketball, but when the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors got the nerves out, they started throwing down … nasty dunks.

Leave it to LeBron James to punctuate the first-quarter display with a vicious dunk on JaVale McGee:

It was a Game 1 dunk fest, with the Warriors alone getting seven in the quarter, and no one was complaining.
