Apparently Magic Johnson loves watching LeBron James dunk during pre-game warmup so much that he’s prepared to give LBJ one million just to enter the Slam Dunk Contest. Gitty up!
“Please LeBron, get in the dunk contest,” Johnson said earlier tonight on ESPN’s Kia NBA Countdown pregame show. “I’m going to put up a million dollars. A million dollars to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner.”
Currently, the league pays $100,000 to the winner of the slam dunk and $50,000 to the runner-up.
