LeBron James

The Secret Dunk

EXPOSED!

7/22/2009 4:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the footage you've been waiting for -- the tape LeBron James tried to destroy -- the moment King James gets slam dunked on by an amateur!!!!!!!!

Lebron James: Click to watch
Here's the back story -- LeBron had a bunch of basketball prospects over at his LeBron James Skills Academy camp earlier this month.

LJ joined in on a pick-up game during the camp, when Jordan Crawford -- a 20-year-old baller from Xavier University -- got the rock and decided to go right after LeBron, soaring right over the all-star and delivering a nasty two-handed slam in front of everyone!

Several media outlets reported that LeBron and Nike -- who sponsored the camp -- sent henchmen to confiscate tapes from anyone who may have been recording the dunk, fearing the footage would cause some serious damage to LeBron's image.

But one copy survived -- and the tape proves all the reports are true ... LeBron is human after all, and Jordan Crawford was the guy who proved it.

Yeah. So what. Lebron was not in NBA mode. What non-athlete's do not realize is that you are in a different mind set when playing against NBA level talent and playing in a pick up game at your camp. You do not go all out, nor try your hardest to block a slam that could possibly lead to you getting severly hurt and then ruining a promising NBA carrer. How many people remember the NFL running back that tore his ACL in a beach football game because he wanted to be "the superstar" on the beach. It ruined his carrer and costed him millions. Keep it in prespective. Only Lebron haters will find anything signigficant in this.

For whatever reason, I couldn't get the video to play but I don't understand the need to try to keep the tape from getting out, if that's even true. It doesn't make LJ less of a player, and it doesn't prove the young man automatically becomes as great as people think LJ is before people see more of him. Beyond that, it would have been impossible to keep it under wraps. I just hope LJ's people don't try to come out making excuses about it, which will just make him look bad (to me). The young man's statement in the other story is very gracious.

This is a big deal bc Nike and LeBron made it a big deal by confiscating all the tapes after the fact. Fact is, the dunk is not that big of a deal - it's a normal basketball play. But bc they tried to cover it up, Nike made it a big deal.

I see some of you saying "whats the big deal", the big deal is, "LABRON, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE OUT THERE BETTER THAN YOUR SNIVILING, BAD ATTITUDE ASS.

This is what all the fuss was about? Nike and Lebron made the situation worse for confiscating the tapes. If they had let us see this clip from the get go, we wouldn't have thought much of it.

The footage is horrible quality and for all the hype it's really nothing too special. This kid better enjoy his 15 minutes of fame cause he's at about 14:59 right now...
