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.

Amazing what kind of realism you can get by drawing a bunch of images on some cards, then flipping them real fast.

It makes a difference to LeBron James if a kid made him eat a basketball. As most people know Lebron thinks he's GOD. A little humble pie is good for the soul. Eat up Lebron!

King James is a bitch. If the refs would follow the rule book and call him on his 2 and half steps every time he takes them his point stats would be crap
