Lebron Getting Dunked on, Video page 2

The whole "any publicity is good publicity" cliche is, well, not true. That's why Phelps, Kobe, etc lost endorsements after their little endeavors. Nike's actions basically made their #2 guy (behind Tiger) look like a immature crybaby. And that, somehow, is supposed to improve their sales? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Look, if it had been some small company that did this, then yes, it might be good for them, because people who wouldn't have otherwise heard of them would know their name. But everyone knows Nike. They're the gold standard - the titan - of sports marketing. Contrary to the adage, any bad publicity for Nike is indeed bad publicity.

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.


But you already hate LeBron and look for any opportunity to ding him. I doubt he lost any fans or potential fans over this. Just haters hating. That's how you know you are the best.

Nike: LeBron dunk tapes to be returned
I don't see why it's a big deal. Did Jordan never get dunked on in his life? Did Kobe never get dunked on in his life? If you play enough basketball somebody will dunk on you eventually. Lebron would own that guy and pretty much anybody in one on one all day. So what one dunk.

I got dunked on...on transition D...and the PG lofts the ball towards the rim...I leap to intercept and think I have a deflection and this 6'8" b*****d is in the air behind me, grabs the ball before I could and dunks on me. I'm only 5'11.

That was fun but embarrassing.
For those who say that these kinds of incidents don't affect a player's marketability . . . maybe it's just me . . . I used to really like LeBron, and I couldn't wait for him to dethrone Kobe, but his antics the last several months have convinced me to place myself in the hater category. Dude's a total douchebag.
Oh, and one time I got dunked on by a huge black dude who managed to kick me in the balls as he threw down a sick tomahawk. That was really embarrassing.

I got over it, though.
