Video: LeBron James Dunks On Camper, Then Offers Signed Sneakers
It seems as though every year the skills camp brings about a new dunking scandal for King James. Two summers ago it was a high schooler at the camp dunking on LeBron James that took the rumor mill by storm when the video was immediately pulled from the Web and then eventually released. Questions about LeBron’s ego and public persona swarmed after the incident and were more or less answered during his hour long televised Decision last summer on ESPN. LeBron has attracted a lot of heat (there’s a pun) and hate for not only leaving Cleveland, but for doing it in a public fashion without giving anyone in Ohio a heads up. The latest potential PR nightmare for LeBron came a few days ago when playing knockout with a few high schoolers at the aforementioned skills camp. LeBron finished off a turn by dunking and subsequently knocked down an undersized kid who crumpled like a sack of potatoes. It looks like LeBron and his camp have learned from the previous skills incident and have left this one up on the Web. The kid took a hit that would send most power forwards flying, but didn’t seem any worse for the wear and walked it off. As compensation for the kid’s bruised corpus and subsequent bruised ego after the video has racked up tens of thousands of hits, LeBron is offering up a pair of signed sneakers. It looks as if, for now, LeBron’s latest image crisis has been averted.
