Nike Returning LeBron Dunk Tapes

7/24/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron JamesThey just did it -- Nike has finally decided to give back the tapes they confiscated showing LeBron James getting dunked on by a college kid.

Nike henchmen took the tapes from two accredited journalists moments after Xavier's Jordan Crawford threw it down on King James at his Nike sponsored summer skills camp earlier this month.

The decision to take the tapes ignited a huge controversy and speculation that the Swoosh didn't want LeBron, a huge Nike spokesperson, to be seen in a bad light.

Nike claims it only snatched the tapes based on a policy that no pickup games be filmed.

But now -- 2 days after TMZ released the first copy of the dunk -- Nike is finally doing the right thing. However, it's unclear when they will hand the tapes back to the journalists.

So what, who cares? I think TMZ is making a big deal out of nothing by spending so much time and energy covering this dunk. This isn't the first time LeBron has been dunked on. He had a high school teammate who used to dunk over him all the time. Enough of this foolishness; it's not a big deal--everyone eventually gets dunked on!

NIke must have thought the game was in the same Third World police state where they make their craptastic golfing equipment. I've been wearing their clothing and shoes for almost 30 years, since junior high, but I'm done with them. Between their horrible golf clubs and their heavy handed goonery, they don't need any more of my money. And they ain't a-gonna git it no more, no how.

Lebron is a fraud. My dead grandmother could score 20 PPG in today's NBA. Before he and his masters at Nike name him 'King' James he should win a championship. At least. Had James played back in MJ's day, the only way he would have gone to an All Star game is if he carried Charles Barkley's jock.

ugh    

Nike will get no more of my money, ever. Cram your henchmen where the sun don't shine. Better be glad it wasn't me who taped that and you tried to pry it from my hands -- more than the tape would have made the news.

LeBron -- you bitch. You insecure, overpaid, friggin' crybaby. Now eeeevvvverybody knows. You got showed up, fool. And it wouldn't even have been that big of a deal had you not conspired to cover it up. You should be mentoring and encouraging your fellow younger brothers of color instead of having the fear you wouldn't be solely in the limelight. Shame on you.
