NIKE/LEBRON CONSPIRACY TAKING ON EPIC PROPORTIONS

JORDAN CRAWFORD

This story has BLOWN UP.  College sophomore Jordan Crawford of Xavier dunked on LeBron James at the NBA superstar’s own basketball camp. Crawford performed the King James Facial at the LeBron James Skills Academy on Monday.

Here’s where the conspiracy comes in. According to Chris Chase of Rivals.com and Yahoo! Sports, James immediately ordered the confiscation of every tape in the gym following Craword’s dunk. Apparently LeBron didn’t want video of a college sophomore dunking on him ending up on YouTube and hurting his rep.

This is not just some crazy blogger thing. The story has been picked up on by the Detroit News (Crawford’s home town), New York Times, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer among other mainstream newspapers. CBSsports.com quotes one of the players that was there as saying “it was bad” of Crawford’s dunk on James.

Crawford is now an Internet legend even without the YouTube video. Deadspin.com ran the perfect photo to accompany their take on the story:

 

 

As the week goes on, the story just keeps gaining momentum. Fox Sports interviewed Crawford about the dunk, which is literally now taking on mythical status.

Crawford is a 6-foot-4 guard who will be playing his first year at Xavier this upcoming season. He was a recruit at Indiana who got caught up in the Kelvin Sampson nonsense and played junior college basketball last season.

IDAHO FOOTBALL TEAM REMOVES “I” LOGO FROM TEAM’S ASSES

September 6, 2008

 

The University of Idaho (Sarah Palin’s alma mater) was embarrassed in their 2008 football opener 70-0 by Arizona. Worse, the school was taunted over the new uniform design of their pants.

The pants featured an “I” and the word “Vandals” printed across the butt. The logo was sponsored by Nike which gave the school its first endorsement deal in history.

The Vandals may still suck, but at least the logos have been removed from the players butts. School officials have agreed to change the uniforms after complaints from the players.
