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.

That was the "dunk"? That's what everyone is going crazy about? I saw another version of it and laughed because the dunk wasn't even that serious. It was impressive to see Crawford get up over James, but...is that what's getting people hyped? Geez, man, people need to get a life.

hahahahahha!!!!!    

6. What's the big deal???? It's a simple, common basketball play.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exactly, but your boy LeBitch and Nike MADE it into a big deal by stealing cameras and trying to hide the evidence. It's really not that hard of a story to understand, genius

hahahahahha!!!!!    

What makes this absolutely hilarious is that if LeBitch had just let whatever recordings of it hit the internet, any attention they would have gotten would have lasted for a day, if that. The fact he acted like a black Hilter and rounded up every camera that he could to hide the proof made this into a huge, massive deal. What a dumbass
