The Sacramento Kings headed east to Miami tonight to take on the defending champion Miami Heat, and for their troubles, they were blown out of the arena by the champs, 122-103.

This particular game, however, brought us maybe the NBA highlight of the night as LeBron James absolutely destroyed the Kings’ Ben McLemore on a drive-and-dunk play in the first quarter.

In case you haven’t seen the play yet, you can watch it here.

Yes, that was the epitome of posterizing someone. Poor McLemore never stood a chance in front of the dominance that is LeBron James.

Now, for the most part, many players in the NBA are good friends. Some are even best friends. Either way, there’s different levels of respect around the league.

Well apparently, James is quite fond of McLemore personally. In speaking about the highlight play after the game, LeBron expressed his bit of displeasure that it was his friend McLemore that he absolutely humiliated in front of everyone:

Hey, LeBron, I’m sorry but you just can’t pick and choose who you want to embarrass. These things will happen.
