Xavier's Jordan Crawford apparently threw down a ridiculous two-handed dunk on LeBron James during James' summer basketball camp. It's the kind of dunk you'd see get a gazillion views on YouTube, except for one problem.

LeBron's Nike handlers confiscated all tapes of the dunk.

It's not that people aren't allowed to tape what goes on at LeBron's camp, but when he got dunked on, Nike's guys swooped in and confiscated all tapes of the dunk.

Here are more details so you know I'm not messing with you:

Freelance photographer Ryan Miller was one of the cameramen shooting the game.

He told CBSSports.com that Nike Basketball Senior Director Lynn Merritt took his tape.

"He just said, 'We have to take your tape,'" Miller said. "They took it from other guys, too."

Worth noting is that there is no policy against filming at the LeBron James Skills Academy, and Miller said he had been filming all day without incident. Nobody ever told him to stop. Nobody ever said there was a problem ... until after Crawford dunked on James.


Man, that's almost like the guys in black suits who show up after you "see" a UFO.
