King James rules over not just the basketball court, but also life and death -- on Wikipedia at least.

During Monday's game between the Celtics and Heat, LeBron James hammered a monstrous dunk over Jason Terry, following which the Miami Heat extended its winning streak to 23 games in a row. James' slam soon became a social media sensation and also the cause of death on Terry's Wikipedia page.

"On March 18, 2013, Terry was killed by NBA forward LeBron James," the page read. "The cause of death is being viciously dunked on."

A few minutes prior to the dunk went like this: Dwyane Wade stole the ball from Terry, passed it to Mario Chalmers. Then Norris Cole lobbed up to LeBron from underneath the basket, who caught the ball in air, and made the dunk over Terry's head. The Celtics shooting guard tried to block the shot, but landed on his back.

There was no time lost in comparing LeBron with the LA Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, who nailed a massive dunk over the Detroit Pistons' Brandon Knight last week. That dunk also trended on Twitter and led to a premature death report on Wikipedia.

"Somewhere Brandon Knight is like...thank you LeBron," one person wrote in a caption on a photo posted on YardBarker.

"Most brutal to the little man? LeBron James over Jason Terry or DeAndre Jordan over Brandon Knight?" tweeted another fan.
