Dramatization: Jordan Crawford Dunks on LeBron James at Summer Camp

How did you spend your summers at camps as a kid? I bet you didn't spend it the way Xavier's Jordan Crawford did. That is to say, dunking on LeBron James. This, however, is something you won't ever get a chance to see if you weren't one of the people in attendance at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Akron thanks to Nike: ↵
↵⇥Freelance photographer Ryan Miller was one of the cameramen shooting the game. ↵⇥

↵⇥He told CBSSports.com that Nike Basketball Senior Director Lynn Merritt took his tape. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥"He just said, 'We have to take your tape,'" Miller said. "They took it from other guys, too." ↵⇥

↵Don't worry, we've been able to reconstruct the situation and here is how we believe it played out: ↵

↵It's a shame we'll never get to see it, and honestly it probably brought just as much if not more attention that Nike tried to bury any such incident. But future note to anyone taping an event like that, Miller included. NEVER EVER give up that tape. Let them kick you out, because whatever you get afterward won't have one percent of the value of that particular tape. ↵

↵And yes, I realize Jordan Crawford isn't white like the guy from WGN, but c'mon. ↵
