Do you remember this year’s slam dunk contest during the NBA All-Star Game? Do you remember who won? Well neither do we. I remember when that event was one of the brightest stars during the All-Star break; the one event that that everyone couldn’t wait to see. So what happened? In a nut shell…the league celebrities stopped showing up.
Well Magic Johnson and Sex.com are trying to change that.
If you can remember a couple weeks back Magic Johnson offered to put up $1 million in prize money if LeBron James, who is doing his own pre-game dunk show at Miami games, would enter next year’s slam dunk contest at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. It seems that Sex.com, is stepping up to the plate and making a similar challenge but this ones involves Lakers’ Kobe Bryant. The pinterest-type porn site is offering to donate $5 million to the charity of Bryant’s choice if he participates in the dunk contest.
But there is a catch!
“Sex.com is offering $5 million to the charity of Kobe Bryant’s choosing for his participation in the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. However, this offer is conditional. It depends on Lebron James entering the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest with Bryant,” the site said in a press release. “Bryant and James are both members of the NBA’s elite and fans often debate who is the better player between the two. Sex.com wants to ensure that basketball fans get to see the two superstars use their talent and creativity.”
This isn’t the first time that Sex.com has offered money to athletes. Back in February, the porn site offered a little under $4 million to Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski to appear in a porn film, after he appeared in a picture with a shirtless female porn star.
Kobe has mentioned that he would not participate in the dunk contest, but now that $5 million is on the table for charity, let’s see if he changes his tune.
