Nike Will Return the ‘LeBron Tapes’

The Swoosh has relented, and will hand back the infamous tapes to the journos who had them taken away: “Nike says it is returning videotapes it confiscated of NBA star LeBron James getting dunked on at a recent basketball camp. Nike said it is giving back tapes to two accredited journalists who filmed Xavier’s Jordan Crawford dunking over James during a recent pickup game at a skills academy run by the superstar at the University of Akron. The sports apparel giant said only one of the tapes captured the infamous dunk, which has been an Internet sensation.”

    They should not give the tapes back because they have a 20 year policy against filming at camps. The journos do not deserve their tapes back for breaking the well documented rules.

    The are making Lebron look like a fool, if they just let it go in the first place it would not be an issue. Do they really believe that the fans believe he is King…the second coming?

    Prison Mike, you’re wrong. Taping is allowed at these camps. I know this first hand.

    As well, the validity of this so called “policy” has been questioned. Chances are, they made it up just to take the tapes in the first place.

    welshmen, you have failed, prison mike was being sarcastic, as that was nikes explanation for taking the tapes in the first place.

    Very heartfelt gesture by LeBron & Co.
    Resume Witnessing!

    Thank you Tarzan. This whole thing sounds like one Seinfeld episode. I love it.

    I also heard they’re returning the tapes that show that they basically enslave young children to make their products. If they haven’t killed the filmmakers!
