Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney said players joked before their pickup games with LeBron James that anyone who dunked on the King would collect $500. Not that the guys thought it would really happen.
Then, towards the end of a contest between James' team (Cavs players James, Danny Green, Tarence Kinsey, Christian Eyenga, and James' high school teammate Romeo Travis) and five college players, Xavier transfer Jordan Crawford threw one down with two hands as King James leapt to help on defense.
"We were pumped," Delaney said. "That's priceless. He can brag on that for the rest of his life."
I don't have the tape anymore that may have footage of the dunk, but I was able to shoot an interview with Jordan Crawford on a fresh tape the next day.
"I've got to see a tape of that," Crawford ironically said after our interview.
