Dramatization: Jordan Crawford Dunks on LeBron James at Summer Camp

New, comments
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. ↵⇥
