Several reports have emerged that Xavier player Jordan Crawford dunked on reigning NBA MVP LeBron James at the LeBron James Skills Academy on Monday night.

Why has it not become a YouTube staple yet?

Apparently embarrassed by the schooling, James was allegedly seen asking Lynn Merritt, senior director of Nike basketball, to confiscate all tapes and proof of the dunk from attending photographers. Reports say there were two photographers present, including freelancer Ryan Miller.

Players present at the academy, which features college level players learning and playing with the NBA phenom, also confirmed the play took place.

No word on whether there is any other proof of the game, including any potential cell phone videos or other photos. No one from the LeBron James camp has confirmed or denied the reports. Nike has done the same.

Media outlets have posted wanted signs for any coverage from the game. Many columnists have told any present fans or players to e-mail them any proof of the incident.
