LeBron Considering Magic Johnson's $1 Million To Compete In The Dunk…

LeBron's been on a highly-publicized tear recently, where he's completed insane dunk after insane dunk in the layup line while dressed in full sweats to prove to everyone, we guess, that even though he's not going to compete in the dunk contest, he would win if he tried.

The NBA's All-Star Weekend Will Look A Lot Like The NHL's All-Star…

Perhaps the only thing the NHL does better than its basketball counterpart is the skills competition.
