Is LeBron scared of the Dunk Contest?

The NBA dunk contest used to be an event where the best ‘dunkers’ in the NBA would have fun, put on a show, and show off their skills.  Isn’t LeBron James one of the best dunkers in the NBA?  Why has he never joined the dunk contest?

Maybe he thinks their is no good competition?  or Maybe he’s too scared of losing?  No one knows the answer.  But everyone knows that him and Nike are extra careful of branding his image, even though they fugged that up the last two years.  After LeBron was dunked on by Jordan Crawford at a summer basketball camp, members of Nike seized cell phones and camera footage of the dunk.

In the end it only made it look worse for LeBronThe dunk itself was not directly over LeBron and it’s a game LeBrons not god he can’t block everything.  It was eventually going to leak why not just let it out instead of trying to cover it up.  So as LeBron and Nike made the wrong decisions as they always do, his image continues to go downhill.

“What Should I Do?”

Join the dunk contest you dumbass.  You should have when you were younger but why not now.  Why not after your image went downhill.  What better to make fans watch and love you again.  Sure winning a championship might earn you some respect but your expected to.  LeBron will have to win more than one championship to be loved by fans again.

LeBron could say he just wants to win and does not mind if hes compared to Kobe or MJ when his career is over. #bullshit.  Any competitor in any sport wants to be considered the best.  And if Nike wants to make him similar to Black Mamba & His Airness why not have him join the contest.  Scared he’ll lose?  Who cares, Kobe Bryant lost to Vince Carter and it hasn’t affected his image.  As far as Jordan the jumpman logo that LeBron wears on his shoes was born in the dunk contest when Jordan took off from the free throw line.

As far as I see it the dunk contest could only help LeBrons image.  Unless he’s that unoriginal and uncreative or is just flat out scared of Blake Griffin.

Every player that was considered to be a great dunker has joined the contest.  Every star in the NBA today has taken part in the contest (except for teammate D Wade, but his best dunks are in traffic. Might not look as amazing on an open floor.)

Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire, Josh Smith, Rudy Gay, J.R. Smith, Vince Carter and Tracy Mcgrady.  These are considered to be the best dunkers in the NBA (the last 2 are old now but were).  LeBron grow a sack and do what you love to do.

…it’s at the end of every add you have “just do it” foo.

What seemed to be a cool commercial at the time now  seems as if it’s another one of LeBron & Nikes ways to get around questionable decisions & negative publicity.  P.S. That jam is winning nooo contest.  Check out the best ever.

    I am a huge LeBron James fan as it is and I do agree that he should have entered into the dunk contest. In 2004 he was entered but got injured and after that he probably said forget it. The funny thing you said is LeBron is scared of blake griffin. If you have watched a previous game against the Cavaliers, Blake Griffin got completely stuffed and fell to the floor. LeBron has never had that happen. Rookie Blake Griffin is, but he is not near the level LeBron is.

    Last thing. Kobe isn’t better than LeBron. Championships are a team effort, not single player achievement, as is MVP. LeBron led his team without any other superstars to help him to the finals against the Spurs. Kobe never lead the lakers to a NBA finals without the help of another superstar. Even the 81 points and 35 point average, first since jordan wasnt enough to get the job done. LeBron is better.

    LOL lebron is disgustingly overrated, and is a stat padder, he also only has one dunk he does over and over again, the onli thing is he does it with such power cuz hes a big guy, kobe is a real dunker and by far the best player in the nba, theres honestly no question, lebron is probably #9 or #10 in the top 10 best players in the league (realistically), and realize this, lebron led his team nowhere, jus to a loss in the playoffs where it actually matters, and also you might wanna get your facts straight because the team around lebron was actually better than kobe’s hahahahaha, kobe is a proven leader and clutch player who would be able to put up 30 points with a torn ACL, lol actually there is practically no cartilidge in his knee, so its pretty much like bone on bone and he still managed to drop 37 and 14, lebron scored less and rebounded less and onli succeeded in assisting a little more, so i ask u, if lebron is so great then why did he go and hide with the great dwayne wade and chris bosh?
