Morning Bog: Malcolm Delaney Saw LeBron Get Dunked On

Here's a local connection to the neverendingly pleasing story of LeBron getting dunked on: Baltimore's own Malcolm Delaney, from Virginia Tech, was at the camp and was a witness. Here's from his Twitter feed:

YES LEBRON GOT DUNKED ON... FACE @ FACE WIT @ HANDS N IT WAS NASTY.. I had front row seats cuz I was playin.. Lmao..

You can say that again. More links, courtesy Max Wasserman.

* Ryan Miller, the famous cameraman whose tapes of Jordan Crawford climbing LeBron were confiscated by Nike, does an interview. "[The dunk] was good," he said. "I haven't looked online to read too much about it. It was as good as it could've been hyped up to be." (Deadspin)

* Nike PR says they didn't take away the tapes because of the dunk--and all those kids in sweatshops actually get three weeks paid vacation and dental. Also, this never would have happened with MJ. (The Dagger)

* YES! BRING! POPS! BACK! (Max is a GW fan - ed.) (Bullets Forever)

* Doug Williams on Steve McNair and the fraternity of black quarterbacks. (Gary Shelton)

* Do the Nationals even want to trade anyone? I mean, why would they? Things are going so well. And they'd have to take all new team pictures and getting the portrait photographer on short notice is such a hassle. (Federal Baseball)

* Re-starting the Manny Acta watch. (NBC Washington)

* Reliever B.J. Ryan, who played for the Orioles back when Washingtonians still rooted for them, has been released by the Blue Jays after walking 17 in 20.1 innings this year. (Big League Stew)

* Nominating Fred Smoot for the Next Food Network Star. The Food Network should take him, because his presence could bring in about 1.3 million viewers--or nearly half the people that watch Top Chef. (Redskins Blog)

* Chris Cooley goes to the rodeo and roots for the bulls. That's how much he hates cowboys. (Cooley Zone)

* In his first cap for the U.S. Men's National Team in three years, DCU's Santino Quaranta scores the game-winning goal against Honduras at RFK. It's a feel-good story. (Behind the Badge)

* A Wash Times columnist says that the Nats' Baseball 101 event "ranks right down there with the deals that brought Lastings Milledge and Elijah Dukes here. Or even worse, with the one that landed Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez." Actually, it's a perfectly fine idea, and has been a huge success with the Caps. (Dick Heller)

* Dmitri Young says he still has a lot of ball left to play. (Wash Times)

* Despite a guarantee of victory from their coach, the Kastles lose again to fall to 0-4. Welcome to D.C. (We Love DC)

* And Anna Kournikova reveals that she's not Jewish. (Green & Glover)
