Fan Starts Crowd Funding Campaign To Raise $1 Million To Get LeBron To Join Dunk Contest
Sports

A lot of people are puzzled as to why LeBron James will not be competing in the upcoming NBA slam dunk contest. He is probably the most entertaining, innovative and highly skilled player in the league, yet for some reason he was not selected to show off his mind-blowing moves in this popular contest. 

28-year-old Chris Thomas just could not live with King James being left out of this competition so he started a campaign to raise 1 million dollars to be donated to the LeBron James Family Foundation. While the money will obviously be donated for a good cause, Thomas is literally trying to buy James a spot in the 2013 slam dunk contest.

Unfortunately, there are two factors that are contributing to Thomas not getting his way. For one thing, the foundation has only raised about 4,000 dollars as of now, and two, James has repeatedly stated that he does not wish to participate in the competition.

To make a donation, just head on over to http://www.gofundme.com/helplebrondunk.

Charities all over the world should take heed of Thomas’s strategy. LeBron has already said he’s not interested in granting his wish, yet the campaign has brought in thousands of dollars for James’ foundation.

Hmm….

How Women Have Created A War Against One Another And Why It Needs To Stop

Earlier this year, as Vogue prepared its February issue, which featured Lena Dunham on the cover, “feminist” blog site Jezebel offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who could provide un-retouched photos from the magazine’s photo shoot with Dunham, an inexplicable move that will go down in infamy in the annals of ridiculous female douchery. Addressing the Jezebel incident in interviews since then, Dunham […]

Watch An Adorable French Bulldog Puppy Argue Over Going To Sleep

I don’t know what kind of demon magic the woman in this video possesses, but this is less of an “argument” and more of a hypnosis. It’s like a dog whisperer on anabolic steroids. That poor little guy never had a chance. Sure, that duck imitation it calls “barking” might have sounded like resistance, but […]
