Miami Heat star Lebron James may have gotten an offer he can’t refuse.

James has been taunting fans for years with spectacular pre-game and game dunks. But James has always passed on the Slam Dunk Contest. The media and fans have urged James to enter, but he’s ignored the pleas since his arrival in 2003.

But fans have not given up hope. And neither has Magic Johnson. During ESPN’s pregame show on Friday, the former Los Angeles Lakers star said he would put up $1 million if James participates.

Johnson, later, changed up his offer and said a $1 million to the winner if James participates.

“Please, LeBron, get in the dunk contest,” Johnson said. “I’m going to put up a million dollars. A million dollars from Magic to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner.”
