Saw the video earlier today. I will start off by saying, I dislike Lebron James more than any athlete.
A)He is an idiot for not letting the kids win
B)Give the kids a show and do a few dunks, but don't dunk on a kid
C)Props to him for hosting a youth bball camp
D)I hope he feels like a man now. He couldn't get it done vs. Dallas so he might as well blow up his ego by dunking on a munchkin.
E)He still cannot hit a 3 pt shot even in a fun game
I attended the Mavericks bball camp 3 years in a row as a kid. We had Mavs players come in and see us (in the mid/early 90s, so no Dirk etc). The players would shoot with us, but never get ultra competitive and certainly never shooting or dunking on us.

Quoting BMI727 (Reply 2): the collision looked completely accidental.
I don't think he meant to run into the kid, but I do think he didn't care if he did just as long as he got the ball in the basket. I also note that it took him an eternity to get back over to the kid to make sure he was okay.
The kid took it in stride, and he'll have a good story to tell later in life, but would it really kill Lebron to wait until after the kid was away from the basket before driving for a dunk, or perhaps stop to help him up before walking away?
