Of course, I'm talking about Xavier's own Jordan Crawford dunking over Lebron James. TMZ.com will have it at 6:45 tonight.

Hard to believe this has become such a story.

If it didn't happen in a NBA game then I don't see what the big deal is.

I guess Nike and LeBron's people beg to differ.

It's on TMZ's website now, not all that impressive. Video's shot from other side of the court, on a small camera, a little blury and moves, but he does dunk on him I guess. Looks more like Lebron tried to slide over and stop him but was just late...

Much more lame then Nike's reaction made me expect it to be...

Lebron got there late more than he got dunked on, IMO. He and Nike got waaaay too excited over this.

Dunks like that happen all the time and its not like he caught James off guard and made him catch a face full of crotch when he was dunking.

That was totally lame. I mean it was a sweet dunk, but it wasn't on Lebron. They made it sound like he took him one and one and threw down on him which is not at all what happened.

Next.

Great. Nice dunk. This kind of crap happens all the time.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Lebron is a poor sport no matter what game he's playing and here is a good example of it:

Much ado about nothing. Of course maybe that's what everybody wanted.

It's only a big deal to xavier fans.

Xavier clearly controls TMZ and the other media outlets (ESPN talked about it for days) who have continued to run with the story.

Actually the story is how unimpressive the dunk was. If Lebron was so sensitive to try and embargo that tape from getting out, that's pretty weak.

The story was actually Lebron's/Nike's reaction. Not the dunk itself.

And it WAS a pretty nice jam. Just not worth Lebron's/Nike's reaction, obviously.

You're right BR. That's basically what I was trying to say.

I think Crawford was better off with no tape and just his legend to grow.

Yep, though the release of the tape did earn him another news cycle.

I'd love to see X and UK get a neutral site game going every year.

Mighty nice of ESPN to return these videos back to their owners.
