Everyone gets dunked on once in awhile. If this was LeBot's idea, his ego needs a checkin.

I heard it was Nike
As if that will never happen in the NBA?

I don't get it.
Wow, that was a hella lame ass dunk...get vince carter in there next season and show lebron what true posterization really means
LOL @ all the people perplexed by why Nike confiscated the video. It was a brilliant business decision. By confiscating the video we are STILL talking about this. If it went straight to youtube it would have fizzled in a few days. But this way they kept their names in the news for WAY longer than they should have. Pretty smart actually.

I understand that, but it's bad publicity, IMO. It makes them look stupid and childish. I understand the marketing concept behind it, but unlike Jerry Jones, I do believe that there is good publicity, and bad publicity.

Yeah, because Nike needs the publicity...

Well, they need publicity. They pay millions of dollars in ads, so this is free publicity. I just think it was stupid, and shows them in poor light. I don't think Lebron or Nike gained anything from it, except negative feedback.

Well I'd imagine at first they were planning some kind of TV ad featuring the clip or possibly using it for some viral marketing campaign. But since there is more footage they are probably just happy to keep hearing their name in print and having the internet and blog world light up about it. No such thing as bad publicity.

Very true, its free publicity bc Lebron and Nike name gets thrown around for free by the media.

its quite possible they could make a future skit about the whole thing, and this promoted it
What's the big ass deal about this dunk??? it was a simple dunk and LJ like came from a side a bit. it wasn't like it was a facial that LB was trying to contest. I just don't see why Lebron and Nike is making it such a big deal about!!!

I swear next season i hope Kobe gives one to him in his grill!!!!!!!

Makes me wanna buy converse now!!!
Of course there's such a thing as bad publicity. Kobe got plenty of publicity for the rape trial, and it killed him in endorsements. Of course this isn't in the same league as that, but it's not good when your client looks like a huge beotch. Between getting knocked out of the playoffs by Orlando, not shaking hands afterward, wearing shirts that proclaim how amazing he is, and this dunk situaion, "The King's image has taken a hit this summer.
