This really doesn’t make any sense, because Kobe has already won a Dunk Contest, but everyone is trying to get some publicity off the fact that Lebron refuses to compete.
I will give Sex.com credit, they could have taken the easy route and just offered the money to LeBron, but by offering it to Kobe, people will at least be curious what strings are attached to it considering it is a porn site.
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.
We at Sex.com feel it is important for the sport of basketball that Kobe and Lebron face-off in the dunk contest and we want to be part of this historic event. The NBA’s best players used to enter. Jordan versus Dominique had us on the edge of our seats. It would be a shame for these exceptional player to let pride take priority over sportsmanship…” says Sex.com’s Director of Marketing J.L. Marcoux.
I think because Kobe is still very effective and occasionally will rise up for a Dunk, people forget in terms of basketball years, he is an old man.
17 years in the league and that isn’t counting all the playoff games, so there is no way he would ever compete in a dunk contest again. I am pretty sure Sex.com isn’t aware that he competed before.
What they should have offered was $25 million for a Vanessa and Kobe sex tape (Photos of Vanessa above), that would have generated a lot more buzz and interest. They could also use the ladies he was partying shirtless with.
Actually, they could dropped Kobe from the tape and just use Vanessa. That would be my plan if I was running Sex.com.
