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.
