After seeing how lame the 2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest was, it's clear that there's only one thing that can save the Slam Dunk Contest as a whole at this point: LeBron James. Problem is, LBJ seemingly has no interest in participating in it. Unless, as he points out in this video from All-Star Weekend, there's a $1 million purse on the line.

Not for nothing, David Stern, but $1 million seems like an awfully cheap asking price for Bron-Bron's services in the dunk contest, wouldn't you say? Please don't make us sit through this again.
