Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan came so, so close to pulling off one of the five best dunks of all time.
That is, at least, according to LeBron James.
During Team USA's second tune-up in three days against China, the Raptors guard, who this offseason signed a hefty $139 million contract to return to Toronto, attempted a 360 dunk over reserve center Jia Cheng.
As mentioned above, LeBron most definitely approves.

After a strong performance from Kevin Durant to open the game in front of his new hometown crowd at Oracle Arena, DeMarcus Cousins led the way for Team USA en route to a 107-57 victory (one-upping themselves after a 106-57 win on Sunday). The Sacramento Kings big man dropped 21 points and snagged 11 boards in under 20 minutes.
One person who didn't approve of DeRozan's antics? Team USA's head coach, Mike Krzyzewski.
Coach K said: "We had a little bit too much fun out there tonight. We have to tone that down a little bit." https://t.co/7KIDaLcDKw

Make or miss, DeRozan's 360 slam on a big man still wouldn't have touched the best Olympics-related dunk ever.
Right, Vince Carter?
