LeBron James is constantly being compared to NBA legends like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Now I guess we’ll have to add Karl Malone to the list.

On Tuesday night, LeBron and the Cavaliers were in Dallas taking on the Mavericks. Late in the first quarter, LeBron intercepted a pass, dished to J.R. Smith, and took off down the court, where he got the ball back and went in for the gimme.

However, LeBron wasn’t content just to throw it down. He wanted to do something special. So, channeling Karl Malone, he put his left hand behind his head and executed the iconic Mailman dunk to perfection.

Take a look:

Of course, while that was LeBron’s most stylish dunk of the night, it was not his best. His best came with 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the game on the line, and three Mavericks players standing between him and the basket.

Take a look:

In the end, while the Mavs put forth one hell of an effort, it still wasn’t enough. LeBron’s Cavs came away with a 110-107 overtime victory.
