Convince LeBron to Enter Dunk Contest

But James has steadfastly sat out the contest, which has in many fans’ estimation devolved into a derivative, yawn-inducing shell of its former self.
“It’s just not me, I’m not a dunk contest type of guy,” James told reporters last year. “I’m an in-game dunker. I kind of improvise during the game. I’m not for scoreboards and all that type of stuff.”
But if the winner walked way with a check for a million dollars?
“Then I’d reconsider,” he said. “Wouldn’t you?”
Twenty-eight-year-old NBA fan Chris Thomas is aiming to make James reconsider.
Thomas created a crowdfunding website to raise $1-million to convince James to enter the slam dunk contest.
