Nike Will Return the ‘LeBron Tapes’

by July 24, 2009

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.”
