    Default Dwyer hates Lebron

    Kelly Dwyer has always been quick to criticize Lebron James. But I think this is a little over board.

    Video: LeBron knocks a kid over while throwing one down

    By Kelly Dwyer
    All LeBron James(notes) does in the clip you're about to see is what most of us have done whether we're playing hoops (or, in this case, "21" or "Knockout") against our kids, or those who are on the JV, or those who are a few grades below us, or even those who were in our own age group when we were kids. We all know the game, but at some point, someone's bound to get knocked on their bottom.
    Usually, though, that person doesn't get knocked over by LeBron James while playing a game of thunder at a basketball camp. So, big ups, kid; assuming you can get up after taking a hit from LBJ. And thanks for bringing the ha-ha, young man, while LeBron tries to make up for all those missed 3-pointers.
    Here's the scene (40 seconds in):










    Here's another shot, from the stands:

    What's also funny, as you can see from the second video, LeBron is knocked out of the game after destroying the kid.
    Not to remain ultra-critical, LeBron, but you do know you can play a game with these youngsters with rules that demand that you shoot from outside the paint. I mean, if I could submit to those rules in high school, I think you can do the same after two NBA MVP awards.

    Looks like all the kids were loving it. That seems to be a theme for things LeBron does, whether it's The Decision, other charities and camps, or this knockout incident: kids have a great time, adults complain.

    The most tragic part of the video was having to hear the person running the video laugh the whole time.

    Kids might have enjoyed it (though i'm sure the kid who got leveled was not really happy about it and looked pretty embarrassed.) but there is no reason for a 6-8 250lbs man to come running in and dunk the ball out of control around some 11 year olds in a game of knock out. Dude needs to exhibit some self control. LeDoucheBag.

    Sometimes I wish we were banned from talking about NBA players during the lockout too.

    So it's cool to criticize Dirk for making a joke about the lockout, but LeBron is off-limits?

    Assuming you're talking about my sarcastic remark on NBATV, that was sarcasm.

    I HATE LeBron, that said I see NOTHING wrong with this.

    They are having some fun, LeBron goes for a dunk (I honestly wonder if he even noticed the kid was that close) and the kid freaking LOVED it.

    He even tweeted later on in the day "Yeah, I got dunked on by LeBron, but he signed his shoes and gave them to be. Pretty awesome" or something to that effect.

    A whole lot of hoopla over nothing in my book

    As a kid I would of loved to be dunked on my MJ.

    I would hate to be a star athlete. You can't please anyone.

    How could you wonder if he even seen him? The kids was only standing 3 feet from the rim taking his own shot. Lebron running in from the side lines to dunk this thing. He seen him and did not care. He could have easily pulled for a layup or a runner. LeDoucheBag.

    I mean why was there a need to dunk the ball? Not cool.

    The kids love it, but I think that's missing the point.

    I never pick on LeBron for stuff like this but that was pretty stupid; he could've seriously hurt someone.

    Assuming you are correct, he used bad judgement and should have shot a lay-up....its the end of the world. Pull all his endorsement contracts, because that kids life is ruined.

    Wait, whats that. This just in..the kid loved it. He even bragged about it afterwards to his friends...

    Much ado about nothing

    The kids don't want to watch Lebron make a layup. They wanted him to dunk. Seeing it that close has to be awesome.

    If anyone else does this, nobody cares.

    I would be willing to bet if Danny Granger or Roy Hibbert do this there is a thread with people saying things along the lines of "Man, I wish I was that kid. Must be awesome to get dunked on by a NBA player." and "I bet that is a camp he never forgets, wish it was me"

    I really don't get this...if lebron gave his kidney to a dying kid in a hospital people would ask "how selfish of him not to give both..." I have been dunked on by a now current NBA player, when he was a high school player. It was pretty unforgettable because the guy helped me up.

    I kind of agree.

    No harm, no foul, and I think the end result was just everyone having fun, but it's true that it could have gone wrong.

    I'm not going to get mad at LeBron for it. But if I had his ear, I might have pointed out the potential risk as a future FYI, just in case.

    But that's me talking as someone who has been responsible for the safety of children in the past.

    I really don't care for LeBron, but that was nothing. He really didn't even dunk on the kid. He just ran into him after dunking. That kid was thrilled that LeBron knocked him over and picked him up. He will remember that forever. Plus LeBron gave him his shoes as a gift.

    I dislike Lebron as much as the next guy but come on, this was the highlight of this kids life up to that point and he will always be able to tell the story about how one of the greatest players to ever play (hate all you want but he is a great player) dunked on him & knocked him over.

    Much ado about nothing IMO.

    Kevin Durant? Dirk? I'm pretty sure no one hates them except their rivals' fans of course.

    It doesnt matter if you're a star, if you make yourself unlikeable, you're going to be hated.
