Last week, Magic Johnson offered $1 million to LeBron James to enter the dunk contest. Now, an adult website wants to put up some cash to get Kobe Bryant to face off against LeBron in the dunk fest.
I’m not joking: Sex.com (which is obviously NSFW) are offering Kobe $5 million if he enters the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest, according to The Huffington Post:
Those NBA fans hoping to see the top players in the game participate in the annual Slam Dunk Contest have an unexpected ally. Sex.com has made a $5 million offer to Kobe Bryant for his participation in the event in 2014.
The offer from the self-described “virtual pinboard for porn” comes not long after Magic Johnson offered to put up $1 million in prize money if LeBron James took his dunks to the contest. Sex.com has offered to donate $5 million to the charity of Bryant’s choice if he participates in the Dunk Contest. But there is a catch — and it involves James.
“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,”the site said in a press release. “Bryant and James are both members of the NBA’s elite and fans often debate who is the better player between the two. Sex.com wants to ensure that basketball fans get to see the two superstars use their talent and creativity.”
Now, this is never going to happen – mostly because the NBA wouldn’t want to be linked to a sex site – but it’s a pretty good marketing move for the said site.
I wonder what Kobe has to say about this?
