LeBron James

The Secret Dunk


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.

The Matrix    

Ok, first and foremost y'all missin the point, the reason it's so crappy is cuz all the good footage was confiscated and destroyed, secondly it shows a COLLEGE player dunkin on an NBA player that's y it's so hyped up, and lastly, the report says James wanted the videos destroyed cuz it would effect his image, so that just goes to show how much of a bitch he really is, from his unsportsman like conduct in the East Conference Finals, to this, he truly is a bitch, he's up there wit Kobe Bryant in bitchassness, but y'all r right he shouldn't make a big deal of it, it happens, specially when u get caught off guard, and he... got caught WAYYY off guard, I mean come on what if Jordan woulda acted like a bitch, and confiscated all the footage of Iverson crossin him up? that would be a bitch move on his part, but he took it like a man and praised him, LJ should do the same for the Xavier kid, cuz he's gotta understand yea u good, but there's always somebody BETTER, he just happened to meet that in the dunk category wit Jordan Crawford... how ironic the kid's name is "Jordan" lol but yea that's all I'm sayin on this, HOLLA BACK!!!

tmz paid money for this?!! that is what all the fuss is all about!!?? lebron should have let the tape come out himself. that was weak material at best. lebron wasn't even going all out. the bottom line is let the dunker have his 15 seconds of fame via the reputation of tmz.
