Video: Shannon Brown Lifts Off

Here was Shannon following the game last night, talking about possibly entering the Dunk Contest: “If that’s what everybody wants, I’m not opposed to it.” He’s got my vote:

    damn hes really evolved over the years, props to shannon

    Brown has always been good. He just never really had the chance to shine.

    this is getting really unfair to will bynum. first you don’t give him slamadaday, then on the next day there’s that all-time highlight from wade and you decide to give shannon a consolation spot! as nice as this dunk is, I WANT WILL BYNUM!

    30 replays for a breakaway dunk? Man, the Lakers broadcast must be a bitch to watch if you only get their coverage as an opposing fan. Nice dunk and Shannon was flying, but it’s not even in HIS top 3, back of the pipe for a second.

    okay, ignore my rant. time for some for shannon: i think it’s really great that he’s starting to get this signature dunk thing going. statue of liberty with extra flavor.

    “you shouldn’t be allowed to do that…unless you’re able to do that, and he is.” I wonder if announcers ever watch old games, hear themselves and think “w.t.f did I just say?”

    this has been a good week for dunks. Iggy, Shannon, Outlaw, Wade…. I like it.

    this blew my mind, shannon brown should be under the dictionary definition of elevation

    hahaha kh I was thinking the same thing. That was really dumb. but not as dumb as reggie miller

  • http://nicekicks.com meloman2.5

    loved him since michigan st… so sad that he’s on the lakers tho

  • Statik

    Yes Eboy hearing their announcers is really f*cking bad, that quote he pulled out his @ss is just an example of how horrible it is…if it isn’t something stupid its them praising every little thing one of the Lakers do. Still Chris Breezy got ridiculous ups tho

    I fully support the idea of Shannon B. in the dunk contest. It would make all-star that much sweeter!

  • Mike C

    Really, he probably has the most hops in the league right now. I haven’t rubbed my eyes in disbelief like that since Vince’s half-man days..

  • filly

    he should be in the dunk contest

  • dma

    @meloman why’s it sad he’s on the lakers? he was buried on a crap team in charlotte and now he’s actually getting burn on a good team in LA.

  • http://www.yahoo.com logues

    bynum, bron, shannon should all be in the contest

  • http://www2.gsb.columbia.edu/faculty/jstiglitz/ DIMITRIS DIAMANTIDIS

    that’s why “I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!” like the 80′s commercial used to say….i loved Iggy’s also. Rodney Carney along with Brown should definitelly be in the dunk contest. And if those two are there Lebron will propably skip it….

  • Yesse

    Wade’s dunk was great, but this aint the slamaday?Could you like put 2 slamadadays?

  • underdog

    I hope BETCATS still thinks it was a good deal to trade VladRad, for Brown…

  • james

    im loving artests “that person do a jumpy” expression. “that person make big jump”

  • Mdala

    Wow the boys go hops… that was spectacular!!!

  • la huey

    SLAM give this guy a nickname. Will Bynum deserves priority over Chri…er Shannon Brown. But you guys need to give guys with common names (no disrespect to their parents) a sick handle.

  • Young Lebron 23

    Y did cleveland get rid of him again?!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    well he hasnt been exactly lighting the league on fire either. the lakers have a need because their bench is weak even though their starting unit is incredible. no one on LA’s bench outside of odom would get serious minutes for orlando, boston or cleveland. (san an can play anybody, it’s like it doesn’t even matter as long as pop is coaching and duncan is owning the paint)

  • nastierthanu

    S brown is a mc donalds all american and showed off his hops in the mc donald dunk contest back n the day not surprised to see this type of evolution in his game

  • http://slamonline.com niQ

    Man he can fly. I just wanted to note, wtf was Artest doing after the dunk?

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    It’s kinda cute to see Ron Ron spazzing out after the dunk… always fascinating to me to see Nba players (who’ve witnessed hundreds of amazing b-ball related feats) get excited about an ingame dunk. Nice hops, Shannon. Now, about that name…

  • Big Marv

    Reminds me of Clyde the Glyde!!

  • Doug

    Shannon Brown former Spartan baby! He was a force back in college with his dunks and Its great to see him elevating in the NBA on a premier team!

  • Jrooks

    I like my peanut butter with J A M ! ! !

  • Dashton

    Hahahahaha @ james, Ron Ron’s can’t even imagine what it would be like if his legs started working again. “man i’ma have to get some practice at this jumping thing aye”

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    Nice dunk, nearly as lame a commentary as Reggie Miller on DWade’s dunk. “Welcome to your kodak moment” sigh… they actually get paid to spew that krap on air, disgraceful.

  • thafanatic

    great dunk and so was wade’s but how bout the little men, bynum and lawson? I wanna see 30 replays of those dunks

  • http://www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    LOLOL @ james, just noticed that. What a goof.

  • Juice

    yea dudes gotta 44 inch vert very impressive
