LeBron: The Cover Up Is Always Worse Than The Crime

July 23, 2009
Here’s one of the videos circulating around now of the infamous dunk on LeBron James that created such a tizzy.

If there’s anything we’ve learned throughout the years watching celebrities and athletes screw up, it’s that the cover up is always worse than the crime. Was this dunk REALLY worth keeping from the public’s eye? No. Not considering all the deserved backlash LeBron and Nike officials received after confiscating the tapes of the folks covering the event from the sidelines.

Had LeBron been SERIOUSLY poster-ized — like this:

for example — then I could see where LeBron might’ve wanted to keep the video off of YouTube. But c’mon, man…as clips of dudes getting dunked on go, that was pretty tame. And because you somehow falsely thought that A) snatching the tapes of the guys on the sidelines would eliminate ALL evidence of the act and B) that the public would side with you in the matter, enjoy the criticism you’re going to continue to get. Because honestly, the fact that this dunk isn’t all that great makes your actions look WORSE. You were that worried about this? Seriously?

The fact that this came just a month or so after your unsportsmanlike snafu in the playoffs further tarnishes your crown.
