Will LeBron James participate in an upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend dunk contest? That has become the topic du jour as it pertains to the league’s reigning MVP.
The whole thing has reached such a tipping point that NBA legend Magic Johnson has put up $1 million to the winner of any dunk contest that James takes part in.
“Please, LeBron, get in the dunk contest. I’m going to put up a million dollars,” Johnson said on ESPN’s 'NBA Countdown'. “A million dollars from Magic to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner.”
On Sunday James responded to the offer just before taking the court to face the New York Knicks.
He told ESPN that ”I don’t have a response yet,” and “tell him I’ll get back to him.”
He also stated that he visits the idea of doing the contest annually.
“I think about it every year,” James said.
