If you somehow haven't heard about this, Nike and LeBron james have been working hard to confiscate and conceal video of Xavier University sophomore Jordan Crawford throwing one down on LeBron James - AT the LeBron James Skills Academy no less.
TMZ.com touted that they were going to have exclusive footage today at 6:45pm EST, but their video is from a cell phone and looks like one pixely blob dunking over another pixely blob.
Exactly. Imagine how fast this (non-)story would've died if Nike had never confiscated the tape in the first place?
(SIDE NOTE: Isnt it funny how we still describe it as a "tape"? How much longer until we stop using "tape" to refer to footage of things? Come to think of it, it probably should even be called "footage" anymore!)
Lebron had the tapes confisated because of this? He was barely near the kid when he dunked. Total overreaction on his (and his management) part.
Between this and walking off the court and refusing to shake the Magic player's hands, Lebron has been acting like a dick lately. I wonder if the pressure of trying to win a championship is starting to get to him.
Ironically, he didn't quite make it to next Tuesday. (For those who don't know, Silas was fined 10K by the league not that long ago for referring to Carlos Boozer by a certain 7th-grade code phrase to a reporter)
