The Celtics acquired Jordan Crawford in exchange for Leandro Barbosa's expiring contract on Thursday afternoon -- and if that name sounds familiar to Boston hoop fans, it's not only because he was averaging 13.2 points per game this season with the Wizards.
It's because of this:
Fast forward to about the 32-second mark and you'll see Crawford -- then at Xavier -- throwing down a two-handed dunk over none other than LeBron James. The slam came during a pickup game at the NBA MVP's LeBron James Skills Academy in 2009, and camp sponsor Nike was so worried about fallout from the facial that, according to SI.com, "Nike officials confiscated the footage of two videographers working the camp because they claimed the videotaping of after-hours pickup games was not allowed."
Of course, they were probably much more concerned about the potential embarrassment of the world seeing their King get posterized by someone who was just a college kid at the time -- an embarrassment Celtics fans certainly wouldn't mind seeing him recreate.
