This Is What Nike Was Afraid of???
As if Nike and LeBron James didn’t already take enough heat for going all Communist Russia by confiscating the tape of LBJ getting dunked on, now they seem even worse for causing the stir. Most of the videos making their way around the internet have been pretty crappy quality. My boy HG at You Been Blinded found an excellent quality video — one that looks like it was filmed from a good camera, not a cell phone. So here’s the Jordan Crawford dunk on LeBron in really good quality:
That was such a nothing. Think about it — this was a pickup game at a summer camp and LeBron didn’t get dunked on so much as he got dunked around. There was nothing about which they should have been afraid or fearful. Can you say control freaks? That video would have made the rounds on the net but then would have been quickly forgotten. Instead, it’s a permanent blemish on LeBron’s resume (albeit a small one).
