Video: LeBron James Dunks on Camper in Knockout

Poor, poor kid.

Around the 0:35 mark, LeBron clangs his shot off the iron, grabs the rebound off camera, charges back, and dunks hard on a young camper, knocking him over. We can’t front, though—the guy behind the camera makes the video great with the OD laugh, “Worldstar!!”

    Wow…I bet the kid’s parents, who paid for him to learn how to ball with the King, love the fact that Jr’s going to be a viral sensation now.

  • ramo

    we better watch this before nike takes this video

  • Sizzle

    I am surprised the first lebron bashing comment didn’t come till the 5th post…truly original in this day in age..

  • bike

    Watching LeBron clang that 3-pointer really brings back some fond memories of the Finals.

  • doyouwantmore

    There’s that floor awareness we always hear so much about.

  • JL

    he bricked that 3ptr hard.

    I remember playing “Gotcha.” That is a fun game.

  • Pistonsfan

    maybe he was just trying to dunk, so he purposely missed. lol what a lame excuse

  • O

    Why isn’t he working on his post game??

    i tell you what though, knockout is one of them games that can get serious I don’t care if you’re playing with your nephews and neices lmao.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    That tiny kid at 0:12 has an impressive jumpshot.

  • http://dillanleuyahoo.com Holy Baller

    My favorite part is where he mows the kid down and it takes him 20 seconds to help him up, after he’s laughed it up and flexed his muscles for running over a 14 year old. What a complete @ss.

  • greg

    im sure he laughed but we all know if it was the other way around the video wouldnt see the light of day like when jordan crawford caught him

  • hollandese

    LeBron taking his talents to Sesame Street

  • coggie13

    You know your a boss in life when you get haters hating on you for accidentally knock a kid over. Jealousy is ridiculous. That kid has a story to tell his friends for the rest of his life. Heck id get dunked on by Lebron to tell my mates. You all need to lighten up. punks.

  • Vince5

    It’s all good tough, the kid said on facebook that Lebron gave him his shoes.


  • wiz

    open dunks…runs over a kid…by mistake. giant yawn

  • http://www.slamonline.com big_ticket

    love it!!

  • http://bedotwater.bandcamp.com BE.water

    His jumper is broke.

  • bill breedley

    Was afraid for the kid. Bron is a huge baboon

  • Yesse

    Nike will probably turn this tape into a commercial. I’m glad LeBron helped him up atleast. First i thought he was gonna let him down there.

  • giogolo

    by the comments here, i thot he did it on purpose..this i can’t hate.

  • Logan

    this kid is probably going to try and get him back if he enters the league one day…
    i am glad to see Lebron on the court instead of vacation somewhere

  • Matt Park

    hahaha. A reverse Jordan Crawford…

  • eyal

    do you know that Lebron lost after that? the biggest loser ever! hahaha

  • thalilbigkahuna

    At the beginning of the video ( :11 seconds) you can hear the kids saying “Dunk on somebody.” It looks like he missed both shots on purpose so he could dunk for the kids which, judging by the reaction to the first one, was exactly what they wanted.

  • William

    He ends up losing the game and isn’t too happy. Still can’t make a jump shot!

  • Dagger

    Speaking as a former Lebron fan (who’s not from Cleveland): it’s not the dunk, or even knocking down the kid, not even the laugh, but the 20-second backpedal while the kid lay on the ground. Why not try to minimize the kid’s humiliation and help him up quickly? Why not see if he’s okay when you’re a 270-pound man? Maybe this is all out of context, but it almost reminds me of this kind of senseless behaviour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSCoLWJZnL8

  • Ruben Vanravan

    this is the perfect picture how nba is nowadays…. Lebron is shooting bricks , and then he gets mad and grabs the ball and dunk on a kid…and people enjoyed! people nowadays only care abou dunks and all that flashy kind of plays….that’s why the game lost a lot of is soul!!!!

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    Lebron’s shot isn’t good enough to miss if he wants to, but hey, getting dunked on by Bron isn’t just something.

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    And get dunked on
    LIKE A BO$H!

  • TSmoove

    Lost…in…finals…cant…get…knocked…out…AHHHHHH! (Dunks on camper)

  • All Day

    Somebody shoot that damn hyena laughing in the background!!!

  • Mark James

    I’m truthfully surprised he didn’t demand Nike to confiscate the tapes.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I woulda done the same thing.

  • http://Slamonline.com CatKiller

    Damn!!! That’s intense athletic ability put to work. Nbk stfu bro you can’t even touch the rim son

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I’m sayin I would have run over a kid, your mom, my mom, anybody. Ofcourse I can’t dunk like that, I’m commenting on a website on the Internet. Just like you

  • ab40

    I think it’s all fun and games. And those kids want to see him dunk more than anything so he gave em what they wanted sort of at the expense of a kid but there’s the point he can’t lose to a kid dude is a two time mvp.

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    @ nbk, it’s not bcause you go on a basketball site you can’t dunk :)
    It’s called slam for a reason :)

  • PapaBearATL

    Knock out is cut-throat game, you kinda get tunnel vision, it’s not for the squeamish, lol. Besides, we know the size of his ego is probably 10x’s the size of his athletic frame, getting ‘knocked out’ by a pre-teen, that’s the video the sponsors would have pulled. Besides, all you hardcore B-ballers are always trying to convince us football players that basketball is a contact sport, this evidence goes toward your case, lol.

  • James AKA…

    The negativity towards him for this is beyond comprehension. When I’m doing drills with the kids at the school I worked at, I would always turn it on a little extra now and then just to remind them that there is always more to learn, or just to clown around with them. There was nothing malicious in what he did, everyone enjoyed it, so what is the BFD? The tape confiscation by nike was very infantile, but this is just a guy having a relaxed time at a camp. The only thing I could say is that he has a different form on his jumper at the camp, and its part of his shot problem (inconsistent form). Other than that this should look positive (unless you’re judging mr. 2 iq behind the camera)

    If I went to any NBA player’s camp the only thing better than being posterized by them would be to actually get them.

  • brandon

    i think the kid would rather be posterized by blake griffin

  • 6marjons

    i think he was being too passive

  • http://Slamonline.com CatKiller

    Stephen Jackson couldn’t do that…

  • http://www.shakemydamnhead.com SMDH

    the dunk on the kid is no big deal, but it’s sad that after 7 years of NBA experience, Lebron isn’t even the best shooter in a gym full of junior high schoolers, those kids would’ve beaten Lebron in a game of horse, too bad, tomorrow they’ll have to wake up with $600 less (for camp money),and Lebron will still be a ringless billionaire, or something like that =)

  • marc

    Damn people must really hate LeBron for bashing everything he does like damn let him live. You act like he personally did something to you.

  • daniel

    The normal adult reaction is to check on the kid right away.
