Magic Johnson BEGS LeBron James To Do Slam Dunk Contest: “I Will Give You $1 Million Dollars!”

Magic Johnson is practically BEGGING basketball phenom LeBron James to participate in next year’s NBA All-Star slam dunk contest.

In fact, Magic wants LeBron to do the dunk contest so bad, that he’s offering Bron-Bron $1 million if the NBA player decides to finally enter All-Star weekend’s marquee event next year.

The NBA currently pays $100,000 to the Sprite-sponsored slam dunk contest’s winner and $50K to the runner-up, but Magic is offering 7 figures to either LeBron or the person that defeats the Miami Heat superstar.

“Please, LeBron, get in the dunk contest. I’m going to put up a million dollars,” Johnson said on ESPN‘s Kia NBA Countdown. “A million dollars from Magic to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner.”

For whatever reason, James has refused to participate in the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest every year. But recently he’s been putting on dunk shows before Miami home games during warm-ups, which has reignited the public’s interest in seeing him take part in the annual festivities.
