LeBron To Judge Amateur Dunk Contest?

Who knows what would happen if he was judging the real deal (via Rap Radar): “With NBA All-Star game getting under way this weekend in Dallas, Drake and LeBron James are set to judge the amateur Sprite Slam Dunk contest.”

    Drake? Really?

  • underdog

    Lil Nate should simply call out Bron. By the way, where is DeShawn Stevenson when the fans need him?

  • http://theurbangriot.com/ NUPE

    ^I agree – Drake?

  • Buschfire

    I Love Lebron, but the fact that he renegged on not participating in the event this year should not give him the privilage to judge the event…

  • T-Money

    Someone somewhere has a deeply vested interest in seeing Drake succeed. All the guy has on his resume is a kid’s tv show and an okay mixtape yet he’s on the cover of magazines, performing at awards shows, featured on tracks by jay-z, wayne, kanye and the likes… imagine if he could actually rap?!

  • Buschfire

    lol drake? might as well have the backstreet boys judge the event…

  • roman

    See, this is why dude gets away with alot of his bs- why they hell would he be a judge? How about taking part in the event. joke!!!!!!!!

    The key word being “amateur”. Not the regular dunk contest.

    this isn’t the actual NBA dunk contest it’s the sprite slam dunk showdown contest with 4 amateur dunkers that’s going to take place on Friday night


  • Jrooks

    This is why i dont like lebron

  • doyouwantmore

    Drake? Drake? Who exactly makes the decision to over-expose these trendy artists and shove them down everyone’s throats? He’s even sort of a talented dude but every time one of these Lindsey Lohan rappers comes out with mad publicity, ten other rappers who’ve paid their dues have to get out of the way. Why not have Common judge the dunk contest? His Dad was a ball player and he has some game, too.

  • Ferb!!

    I like LeBron, but I hope he get booed out the building that night.

  • Jrooks

    drake ? lebron is a f*g.

  • Nawlins Realest.

    Lebron should not judge the slam dunk contest.

  • http://slamonline.com donone23

    yes Drake stup1d mo’fos! it only says it there letter by letter D-R-A-K-E, dude has mad rapping skills,he not only plays a b-ball player on Degrassi but he actually balls, that’s how he tore the cr@p out of his knee, AND he’s sponsored by sprite, he’s judging the SPRITE slam dunk contest clowns!

  • riggs

    drake sucks.

  • Jrooks

    Lebron is a broad he is nothing like jordan he isnt even herald minor

  • Candice

    Drake as in Jimmy from Degrassi: The Next generation. Umm… why?

    Also Lebron judging is stupid too. Why not take part in it?

  • Jrooks

    Drake and his ghost writer can be a prop in the dunk contest

  • Nigel

    Calm down guys. It’s just the Amateur contest.

  • Jrooks

    Drake? really drake? super homos unite in form of lebrom in form of drake.

  • Nigel

    Calm down guys it’s just the Amateur contest.

  • UnRel

    @donon23.. are you drake?.. but they might as well have baseball players judge..

  • http://www.slamonline.com James the Balla

    Man… Bron is soon going to be refereeing!!
    When Nique, Dr.J, Vince, Kobe, and MJ did the the judging that was dope. Bron and Drake… sad!!

  • Nigel

    It’s just the Amateur contest guys…

    SLAMonline…where poor reading comprehension happens.

  • Jrooks

    Why are they calling it a ameture dunk contest arnt they in the nba

  • http://jayemmbee.blogspot.com ClutchPerformer

    aparently he thinks he too good to compete with the big boys but has every right to judge the amateurs. nice
    and drake come on? how about a rapper related to basketball? like Jay-z or nelly, who remembers him in NBA street 2?

  • Jrooks



  • Yesse

    Lol he should have atleast judged the real dunk contest since he got scared of Shannon.

  • JoeMaMa

    I agree with Nigel, it’s just an amateur competition. Having said that….Drake?

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    You know, they should only let people who have won (or even entered) a dunk competition to be allowed to judge.

  • LA Huey

    Hating must be a hobby for some of y’all..it’s just a contest between amateurs. You guys going to get riled up about the coaches and players participating in the Celebrity All-Star Game too?

  • A.

    You know, they should only let people who KNOW HOW TO READ comment. It’s the AMATEUR DUNK CONTEST. Not the one with the NBA players. Some people hate. And some people hate stupidly. Most people on here are hating stupidly. These are some of the most stupid comments ever. Read the article.

  • frank

    the amateur one will probably have better dunks than the nba one…

  • Vinyljunkie

    Has the line up been announced. A player in the British League Guy Dupuy should feature in the full competition let alone the amateur one.

    If you want to see more British basketball its worth a visit to http://www.insidethegame.co.uk

  • http://www.ballislife.com Arek

    loll you people complain way too much.. it’s all about publicity and marketing.. the NBA cares about making money a lot more who you think should be the judges instead

    Drake is endorsed by Sprite and since it’s a Sprite event it makes complete sense.. and I still think a lot of you are thinking this is the NBA dunk contest.. it’s NOT THE NBA DUNK CONTEST, it’s the Sprite slam dunk showdown with 4 amateur dunkers

  • Chris

  • MattM
