LeBron

Dunks on Kid

Apologizes with Shoes

7/1/2011 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James CRUSHED a young basketball player at a camp in NJ yesterday ... knocking the kid down to the ground during an erratic dunk ... but TMZ has learned, King James came through with a pretty awesome apology.

Lebron Dunks on Kid Video
The NBA star was playing a game of knock-out with the kids ... when he missed his shot ... and went chasing the rebound. Seconds later, LeBron comes flying back towards the rim ... slamming the ball and taking out the next shooter in the process. 

Afterward, the kid went to his Facebook page and posted, "Got dunked on by Lebron :-(  but he gave me his shoes so its alll good broo."

Worth it?

Did Labron actually talk to the kid afterword? or did he have one of his hanger-on flunkie ASVSM boys take care of it?

If you're going to post a video on the web of someone supposedly getting "humiliated", it might be a good idea to make sure your laugh (or should I say cackle) isn't more embarrassing than the subject of the video.

I asked my boss the other day if I could take a Lebron. He let me off work 12 minutes early.

Seriously though why is he trying so hard against kids? I mean is he trying to prove some kind of point or something? We all saw him choke on a Dirk in the finals so no need to go around showing up kids. I guess when you are the self titlted "King" you can get away with that mess.

He gave him his shoes? What, to sell on Ebay? He should have bought him new shoes not smelly, athlete's foot, infected ones.

This isn't the first time he has taken kids out on the court. Same thing last year. Douchebag all the way. Can only step up and dunk on kids. This guy is what 6'9" and 240ish? He will never be the G.O.A.T., just the goat.

WOW! If he could have done that to Dallas he might finally be an NBA Champion! Maybe he will leave Miami now and join Dirk!
