LeBron James Finds Magic Johnson’s $1M Dunk Contest Offer ‘Entertaining’

After Magic Johnson desperately and somewhat ridiculously offered up $1 million for LeBron James to take part in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest (something he has repeatedly said he doesn’t want to to do), the Miami Heat superstar did his best to politely shoot it down. Per the Sun-Sentinel: “‘Right now, I don’t know,’ he said. ‘It doesn’t really stand anywhere. Right now, I’m so focused on what we’re doing as a team.’ To James, the offer appeared to come off as as much of a nuisance as those who had questioned his pregame dunking theatrics. ‘Shoot, All-Star weekend is how far away?’ he said of next February’s showcase in New Orleans. ‘So I’m really not thinking about right now. It was entertaining to hear him say that, though.'”
