LeBron James' visit to the dentist is far from a slam dunk

June 17, 2015

What do you have in common with LeBron James? Probably not a lot, as King James is exceptional at pretty much everything and should be revered as an infallible deity. One thing that brings him down to mortal status? Being in the dentist’s chair.

LeBron, blessed as he is with royalty status and more talent than is even fathomable to the average mind, apparently IS (at least partially) human, and has an average person’s distaste for dental visits. LeBron posted a series of Instagram photos of a apparently traumatizing visit to the dentist a few months ago – and boy, he looks about as happy as he did after the disappointing Game 4 (and 5... and 6...) of the finals (it’s OK LeBron; there’s always next game year!).

And look! LeBron even had a case of the Mondays! This is shattering our perception of his godliness, but making him so much more endearing. LeBron, we just adore you and your loveable little going-to-the-dentist hat.

Hopefully LeBron isn’t thinking too much about his scary dental visit, but is focusing on putting away the next two games of the finals (sorry Warriors; we’re not even going to take this one to Game 7. Cleveland in 6! We got this next year!)

Full disclosure (if you hadn’t already surmised): The DPR editorial team is headquartered in Cleveland. WE’RE ALL IN!

LeBron, for what it’s worth, Stephen Curry isn’t any braver. Check out page two to see how Curry’s experience at the dentist played out. Not as well as yours though, King James, because you are better at everything (including being nervous at the dentist) than he is. Go Cavs!

Stephen Curry had an exciting dental experience too! But not as exciting as Lebron, of course.
