Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown

Beat LeBron James in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown.  

This sounds hard, but with a rookie difficulty it is quite easy. It may take a round or two to get used to the Slam Dunk Competition's controls, but once you do, just challenge LeBron in a 1 on 1 competition. I suggest dunking over an object repeatedly while slightly altering your dunk each time to get as many points as possible.

the controls are RIDICULOUS! I cant manage to get more than 200 points. LeBron's always nailing 500..

I got really lucky trying for this one...on his first try, lebron blew a dunk, the ball shot into the stands, and lebron spent the rest of the showdown glitched into the wall trying to get the ball back. For those who aren't as lucky I would recommend playing as MJ and using props, cause they really boost your score.

The controls in this game, as already said, are ridiculously horrible. 2K11 has killed the Slam Dunk Contest, in video games that is. Lebron proceeds to make inhumane dunks while I am stuck doing the "Elev8r" over and over again while jumping over 3 speakers. I am annoyed if you can't tell. Taking me way longer than I expected to get this achievement.

you just go close a little past the freethrow line, press down and then do another movement with the LS and when the bar gets to the white line press RT and u got it. and add props to get more points.

i used jordan to get this achievement, took me a while to learn the controls, but this achievement really isnt that hard, just pick a good dunker, and mess around a little to learn the controls

Have not got this achievement since they implemented the dunk contest into the game. Even knowing the controls Lebron is doing space jam dunks.

Take all lebrons stats to zero then make him 7 feet. It will make it alot easier to get this achievement

My point of advise, this gave me the shits, and the thing i was doing wrong, was the second movement of the right stick i was doing after i had jumped, but the two movements need to be done before he jumps, quite quickly, hope this helps :)

I suck at the dunk contest, but luckily thanks to a glitch I earn the achievement. if you keep losing, try again until Lebron goes into glitch mode. He will usually be in a corner or just disapear out of no where.

For this you just have to keep moving the right stick around continuously to preform dunks it takes a little bit of practice and restarting but as soon as you get the hang of dunking its simple

The mechanics in this are horrible and LeBron is able to execute very difficult dunks even when all his stats are reduced to 50 and he's made 7-foot-6 and 350 pounds.

I give up.
