You probably didn't hear LeBron on "Fresh Air" tonight. From the transcript:

GROSS: And I want to ask you about something else controversial that's happened pretty recently. You have something called the LeBron James Skills Academy, and a college student attending the academy dunked on you. And it's been reported that Nike, who was sponsoring this, confiscated - I don't know if it was the cameras or just the videos that captured that moment. And so in some people's minds, that's a symbol of your vanity, that you wouldn't allow that to be seen, and in some people's minds, it's not about you, it's about Nike, and it's a symbol of a form of corporate censorship. What is that incident about to you? What's your version of the story?

Mr. JAMES: It's just about people just looking in - when you have nothing more to write about, sometimes people just look for anything. The summer is dead. No basketball is around, so they need something to talk about.

Nike has a no-videotaping policy. It's simple. I mean, if you have a no-videotaping policy, why are you videotaping? So, you know, the kid, which is - really, he's really good, by the way, kid goes to Xavier. And you know, he caught me slipping a little bit, I guess.

(Soundbite of laughter)

Mr. JAMES: Before that day, you can easily go on YouTube and find me getting dunked on by a few more players in the NBA. And, you know, if you even want to look a little bit more, you can find me even dunking on a few players.

GROSS: Really?

(Soundbite of laughter)

Mr. JAMES: I think that may be possible. You may be able to find that. I don't know.

(Soundbite of laughter)
