LeBron James Getting Dunked On (VIDEO)

The dunk video all the LeBron James fans--and LeBron James haters--have been wanting--or, perhaps, not wanting--to see has finally appeared, courtesy of TMZ, among others. The much-anticipated video, which has been a popular topic of discussion on the Internet, shows James getting dunked on by Xavier's Jordan Crawford at Nike's LeBron James Skills Academy last month.

More of the backstory, courtesy of Sports Illustrated:

The tale had morphed into basketball version's of Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster and UFOs in Roswell, an NBA superstar being dunked on by an unknown college basketball player. Now the basketball world can finally see the footage.[...]

As previously reported, Nike officials confiscated the footage of two videographers working the camp because they claimed the videotaping of after-hours pickup games was not allowed. One of the videographers, Ryan Miller, spoke with on Wednesday and confirmed that it was indeed the dunk, but not the footage he shot.

TMZ has a different video of the dunk than the one shown below, which you can see here.
