There would be more pressure if it was a million dollars to a charity or something, 1 million is pocket change for Lebron.

Perhaps.... but consider that it's $1M for about 10 min of work.

Can't get much better than that.

Unless all other competitors are NBA stars, Lebron will simply win by popularity alone.

LeBron is a power dunker.

This will be his first dunk


He will get a 50 for it.

Dodgers finished 2nd to last in NL homers last season. Magic should spend that money on a slugger.

the fan voting would be ridiculously unfair if lebron was in the dunk contest. they should just give it a break for a while. we watch these dunks that are insanely difficult to complete, and we're just used to it now because there really is only some much you can do without the use of props. make an ally-oop contest, or the hardest dunking contest, something fun until we're not so used to crazy ass dunks.

The problem with the dunk contest is that none of the competitors have any flair.... and THAT is what people respond to.

When VC won in 2000 he didn't do anything that was ground-breaking. He just took some dunks that had been done before and added a wrinkle or two to them. His flair did the rest.

If Lebron entered I'd expect the same thing (based on what I've seen from the pre-game dunking shows). I've found those VERY entertaining... probably because there were no props and because he hit them easily on his first try (another thing that Vince was famous for).
