There Are Always Witnesses...
By now everyone has heard or read a reference to Xavier’s Jordan Crawford dunking on LeBron James at his Nike camp. It has become instant-legend overnight. Why? It’s simple, really. The story of a couple of Nike reps confiscating the photographic evidence at the behest of James is vastly more interesting than the actual dunk. And if it makes “the King” look like a chump, all the better for the haters to relish.
Nike maintains they have longstanding policy regarding what events are open and closed to media coverage, and that both photogs handed over their tapes without making a fuss. Gee, that’s odd — one of those guys can’t stop talking about how black helicopters swooped in to take his memory card.
