LeBron James apologizes to Cleveland for not dunking enough

LeBron James says he's sorry for not dunking as often as fans have come to expect from him.

"I apologize I haven't been above the rim," James said — "with a grin" — Monday, according to Cleveland.com.

James has dunked only three times through his first five games, putting him outside the top 50 for slams in the NBA. His Cavaliers are under .500 so far on the young season, which has led some to wonder whether his skills might be slipping.
