So the sports world was going crazy last week when there was a video of Lebron James being posterized by a two-handed dunk at his Nike-run Lebron James Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio by a sophomore guard from Xavier University.

People are starting to call King James a sore l0ser because the footage was confiscated by Nike, making it seem like he went through great lengths to make sure no one saw the tape!

Well that is completely false. Half false at least.

Nike Basketball's Senior Director Lynn Merrit who was the one to take the tapes from the journalists said "Unfortunately, for the first time in four years, two journalists did not respect our no-videotaping policy at an after-hours pick-up game Monday evening following the LeBron James Skills Academy."

And a source close to Lebron told the Cleveland-Plain Dealer, "Jordan Crawford is a great player. LeBron has been dunked on before, it's no big deal. It was a pickup game and it happened in competition."
I agree! People think it's the end of the world when Lebron gets dunked on. It's rare, but it does happen.

Well Kobe seems to think that although it may not be the end of the world, no one will ever dunk on him at his camp.

Here's some footage from Kobe's Basketball Camp:

Haha gotta love it.
