About a month ago, LeBron James said he will never compete in the dunk contest because of age and health concerns. He had publicly promised to do it back in 2009, but has never fulfilled his obligatory duty and left fans disappointed. Chris Thomas was one of those fans, and he has come up with an idea to get LeBron James into the Dunk Contest. Through Gofundme.com, Chris started an online campaign to raise a million dollars in an attempt to get the NBA Superstar to slam a couple of basketballs through the hoop in the most glorious event of the All Star weekend. The campaign is currently at a total of $3,218 dollars, please visit this link if you would like to donate. All proceeds are going into charity and in the case that LeBron backs out from the contest again, you will receive a full refund.
LeBron, I hope you would consider this proposal regardless of the money raised ($3,000 is an impressive amount) and do this for the fans. You can't run away from it forever, it's destiny.
