Nike gives the LeBron tapes back

Why even return the tapes? Really, I mean after all is said and done, the public perception of LeBron James has been damaged no matter what. For Nike to say they now they will be returning the tapes to those which they had previously confiscated is ridiculous.

First off, the dunk was nothing. Bomani Jones had the best outlook on his show “The Three Hour Lunch Break.” LeBron was late on defense, simple and plain. What do people really expect during the middle of summer vacation. The man has been hooping non-stop year round for sometime, having just returned from vacation days before. Couple that with Jordan Crawford playing in this particular scrimmage as though he is Courtney Lee in the Conference Finals, adrenaline thru the ceiling, and sometimes you're gonna get caught. It happens every day in gyms around the world at high schools, colleges, fitness clubs, etc. This whole ordeal did nothing but give the likes of Skip Bayless and the LBJ hating army more ammunition to throw on the fire. Needless to say, we all get the feeling that King James will handle these situations slightly different in the future, hindsight being 20/20.
