Magic temps LeBron with $1 million for dunk contest
NBA fans have long wanted to see Miami Heat star LeBron James participate in a dunk contest. His recent propensity for throwing down wicked slams during pregame warmups has only helped fuel that desire.
Now, fans apparently aren't the only ones who really want to see what King James can do in the dunk competition. NBA legend and current ESPN analyst Magic Johnson wants in on the campaign as well.
Johnson went on the record on national television by stating that he would offer James $1 million to try his hand at winning the slam dunk contest. Johnson then appeared to back off his offer a little bit by saying that he would give $1 million to the winner, instead.
Nonetheless, James would end up pocketing the cash if he decided he wanted in on the deal. Because who really stands a chance at competing with this?
