Note to members of the Miami Heat: Just stay away from games of knockout at youth basketball camps or international tours. They never end well.
First, LeBron James makes a scene at a New Jersey camp by flattening a kid in a game of knockout … only to be embarrassed by being eliminated himself moments later. The entire incident was a PR gaffe on multiple fronts, even if King James did donate a pair of signed shoes to the victimized player.
Incredibly, two weeks later, Dwyane Wade committed a similarly unpardonable sin by rejecting a camper in a game of knockout … again only to fall short in the game's final stages.
