In case you haven’t been paying attention to LeBron James’s triumphant return to the Cleveland Cavs this NBA season, it — uh, ummmmmm, eeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrr — hasn’t exactly been so triumphant. One little basketball fan, however, has a GREAT idea for Bron Bron getting his mojo on the hardwood back: Enter the Dunk Contest at the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend.
Despite being in the NBA since 2003 and being arbuably the NBA’s biggest superstar, Lebron has never entered the Dunk contest. Some say it shows his arrogance. Others say he thinks the Saturday night dunk jam-o-rama is beneath him. He has teased entering the contest before and never delivered, which is like wining and dining a girl on the 10th date and it ending with a peck on the cheek. Honestly, the world of basketball is much, much worse off because of it.
How can someone who claims to be such a fierce competitor be so afraid of losing?
But this kid has an AWESOME idea for LeBron: Have millions of basketball fans donate to a charity close to LeBron’s heart, The Boys and Girls Club of American via a online campaign. Then have LeBron enter the dunk contest. Then dunk like crazy infront of millions on national TV. Then have all that money go to charity. Then get that hoops mojo back.
OR, have people donate their hard-earned money to charity. Then don’t show up like an entitled, arrogant prick diva millionaire. Then don’t have a cent of the money THAT OTHER PEOPLE DONATED go to charity.
The choice is yours, ‘Bron.
