LeBron James, the self-proclaimed King of basketball, is spending the off-season heading up a basketball training camp known as the LeBron James Skills Academy. The camp, sponsored by NIKE, gives prominent high school hotshots the chance to train with the best, that is, LeBron. However, there looks to be a new challenge to the throne. Apparently, Xavier sophomore Jordan Crawford got the better hand on LeBron during a pick up game and dunked, two-handed and HARD, on the 6-foot-8 NBA superstar. Video rolling, and all.
Want to see the footage? Too bad. Right after the mega-dunk, LeBron called over NIKE’s Basketball Senior Director, Lynn Merritt, to have a few words. Moments later, Merritt approached several cameramen and confiscated their tapes. It appears King James didn’t want the video to leak to the internet.
As a consolation prize, though, here’s Crawford dunking – and winning – at Indiana University‘s annual dunk contest. Kid’s got some skills.
