you guys are funny, lebron got his hand etc. over the rim, that counts as trying. dude caught lebron, it was nice, but not great. and next week it will be over, NOT
I just think it’s silly how this was handled, on hindsight and in light of how pedestrian that dunk was. It’s not like Lebron got beat off the dribble or destroyed one-on-one. I don’t think the issue of whether he tried/jumped matters, either. He was the help defender, and he jumped, and got dunked on. Nothing in that tape shows that he was a bad defender or anything that is worth being ashamed of. Zo and Yao and Mutombo and Ewing get dunked on all the time too, but this detracts nothing from how good they are. Big bloody deal. Horrible PR move. It’s not like this was VC on Frederick effing Weis. Good grief.
Jordan Crawford now has a place in basketball history forever.
How come the dude who gets dunked on always yells “Whose man is that”
I’d be pretty happy if that was me banging on lebron. But it wouldve been discussed for bout two minutes had the video not been confiscated
Thanks to this video, the Supreme Court needs to define what actually counts as “getting dunked on”
Big deal, you’re bound to get dunked on, weak jam!
In college my teammates and I came up with these rules:
If you jump and try to block it, you were dunked on.
If you try and take a charge, and you get Liptoned (or Snappelled) you were dunked on
If someone jumps over your back on a rebound tip dunk, you were dunked on
If you are under 6’4″ and the player who dunks on you is 6’8″ and above it does not count because that person is supposed to do that.
If you are over 6’4″ and get dunked on by anyone 6’7.9″ and below it counts.
If you are over 6’8″ and get dunked on by anyone under 6’0″ you must leave the court.
@Luv2ball- I like those rules. Whether LeBron was “trying hard” or not doesn’t matter because often times in the NBA, players are not giving their best effort defensively.
”If you are under 6′4″ and the player who dunks on you is 6′8″ and above it does not count because that person is supposed to do that”: weak sauce.
Who cares about the dunk itself? Did Lebron ask Nike to confiscate the tapes or not?
It was nice but Lebron was like “meh” after it. Dude was jogging the whole pick up game. play wit it.
WAY too much effort for too little of a deal. He got dunked on, but that was a “Yeah, you got me” dunk, not a “Damn I got dunked on dunk.” But because of the self-perpetuated hype, now it is. Congratulations.
All that hype for this lame ass dunk so what he dunk on lebron I bet anything he can’t stop lebron
I assumed it was an alley, 360, between the legs, and that he put his balls on his chin. I was so wrong…
Finally its out!Thanks to the pressure from the fans and the haters.The dunk is like ok, not that amazing.If it would not have been consfiscated by LeBron or Nike, it probably would have not been that big of a deal.
i’m not a big lebron fan but it wasn’t a big deal.. it wasn’t that nasty.. it’s the fault of nike for confiscating it and became a big deal..
Bron smoked pot in HS. http://www.cleveland.com/livingston/index.ssf/2009/07/new_lebron_james_book_tells_of.html
Y.A.W.N. In other news, last night in a packed Arena (around 8500 spectators), Kob’s threw 15 autographed B-Balls into the crowd after his clinic. Yours truly caught one with his left hand, while still filming with his right (a group of unlucky frenchies standing next to me fumbled the catch and tipped it to me.. a’int that a biatch?). My buddy back in Europe who adores Kobe is in for a nice X-Mas present.
what is the big deal, didnt Courtney Lee do this in a game? And everytime Miami and Cleveland play, do Lebron and Wade not taking turns dunking on each other/blocking each other’s shots?
#1 this does NOT take away from LeBrons Beast of a game #2 Yes he got banged on #3 It looked like he tried to block it to me and got surprised #4 The dunk did NOT suck and if it were LeBron or whoever you like as a baller doing the same dunk you would say it was nasty (don’t lie) #5 I think it was more of Bron than Nike wanting the tape taken even though Bron played it cool after the dunk #6 Haters of Bron need to stop making this monumental and lovers of Bron need to just admit he got banged on and it was a nice dunk. Kiss and make up, it’s just hoop. (http://ebaumnation.com/2009/07/22/jordan-crawford-dunks-on-lebron-james)
Slam-a-da-month ish 132!
With all the hype, “Dunkgate” how can it not be?
remember when lebron told his mom to sit her a$$ down?
that was a good dunk but nothing special. it just funny that lebron had them confiscate the tape because it wasnt that bad.
So that’s it?..It’s a nice pound but, all the hype made this dunk seem like it was the greatest dunk ever..
it was a great dunk, but a non issue if not confiscated
It was okay. If there was like an ESPN slow motions and HD replay, that would be good. Thanks!
i give and take this kind of dunks each time i play, thought it was badder than this, there is no shame in takin a dunk lie this one ( rudy gay on scola is for my concern is truely humiliating), at least you try not to allow it.
Blacksportsonline is reporting after a meeting with doctor Buss Lamar & LA are close to signing a deal. (4 yrs 40 mill) dunno if this site is legit, but it’d be nice to roll outta bed tommorow & read about it here.
why wasnt that released in the first place? that was weak
@mr bad Rudy gay on scola was truly a lipton scola got planters all in his mouth, salted and roasted.
So now the real question is: why is his ego so fragile that a dunk and video THAT crappy would have to get pulled? God Lord, it’s shiiite no one will care 10 minutes later. What a let down (unlike the Erin Andrews vid – that is horrible and not a let down – she does squats nude to firm her heinie).
really? i cant believe this…
It would have looked better, had he dunked on Kobe you say?
Glad to hear that you had such a great experience Dark. Anti-Mike has made many mistakes in the past.. Public mistakes.. Mistakes that he’s paid for.
Repent, sinners. For all ye hath angered the Chosen One, and he will bring vengeance upon thee.
thanks Jay, and you’ll be glad to know i called him that in our little one on one (only bit of teasing i got in while talking to him) and even explained where i got the term from. He just laughed it off.
good one, Powerslave
but wasn’t worth all the circus… Come on !!!
whether it was a good dunk or not, help defense or whatever. he got DUNKED on. end statement.
Jesus that was a let down. But I don’t know it couldn’t be after all the nonsense. End the nonsense, that’s what I say. Nice and vague. Have at it, play wit it, etc etc
Lol, your kidding me Dark, that’s hilarious. I made up the term after reading an article from S.I. stating that “Kobe is tracing Jordan’s career, yet he is tracing it backwards.” I’m a THOUSAND PERCENT sure that he internalized that joke way more than he expressed in his reaction.
so am i Jay. There was an instant where he kinda twitched, and looked over at his handlers/bodyguards, as if weighing his options. He still signed a Tee for me though and was generally nice to chat with.
its not that nasty/rude.., if it is a tomahawk dunk.., its going to be so0o0o0o0o nice
Ahahaha, again hilarious Dark
good grief, all the hype over this?! now i really am annoyed by Lebron. dude get over yourself.
Its not like he really dunked on him. LeBron was on the other side of the rim and he came over. Dude didnt just flat out VC his ass.
I cant belive this was so hyped
its SENSELESS! i love lebron still!
