The King Got Crowned

This is not the dunk you’re looking for.

Former Indiana guard Jordan Crawford, who has since transferred to Xavier, is one of the many college guys playing at the LeBron James Skills Academy. He was fortunate enough to get on the same court as James during a pick-up game. And he made the most of that opportunity.

The word when I arrived at the LeBron James Skills Academy was that Monday’s best highlight came in a pick-up game featuring the college players and James himself. According to the collection of NBA scouts and other folks here, Xavier’s Jordan Crawford dunked on James pretty good. So I had to find out whether it was true.

“It happened, and it was bad,” said Michael Gilchrist, the top player in the Class of 2011. “That was something to see.”

Let the frantic search for the video on YouTube begin, right? Wrong. Right after getting crowned, LBJ summoned someone in charge to have the tapes of that moment terminated.

“LeBron called Lynn over and told him something,” Miller said. “That’s how I knew his name was Lynn. LeBron said, ‘Hey, Lynn. Come here.'”

Minutes later, Miller said Merritt demanded his tape.

“There’s nothing I can think of besides LeBron just not wanting it online,” Miller said. “It’s a good story to tell people, I guess. But then again, I’m kind of pissed. I lost my tape.”
