A Little Insecure?

By Jesse Jones

Everybody remembers when LeBron James was dunked on twice by Courtney Lee in the 2009 NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

Now ESPN has reported that LeBron James has been dunked on again, this time by a kid at his basketball camp.  There were multiple videos of the dunk, but LeBron James and Nike had the videos confiscated and erased.

Now why would a player who is considered the best in the NBA by so many need all these videos deleted?  Easy answer; LeBron is insecure about his image.  After losing to the Celtics in the playoffs last year, and losing to the Magic this past season, LeBron was quick to walk off the court.  This year he wouldn’t even attend the press conference.

And now this.  I just do not understand why LeBron would feel that these videos would have to be deleted.  People are going to find out about the dunk anyways, via Twitter, Facebook, ESPN, and other media outlets.  This will just have more people questioning him and losing respect, such as Jemele Hill and Skip Bayless (who refers to LeBron has “Prince James” and now “LeBrick”).

LeBron is very mature for his age and does not get into much drama, but are these occurrences showing us something about him?  I think the answer is yes.
