Near Slamadaday: Shannon Brown on Jason Richardson

It doesn’t matter that he didn’t finish the bang. Give him props for the moxy he showed in even attempting it. I mean, that was real Michael Jordan/Julius Erving sh*t. So we’ll annoint Shannon Brown’s attempt SLAMadaday even though it didn’t go down. Too bad, too, because if it did, no doubt you’d be reading about it in the next issue of SLAM.

    seriously if richardson didnt get scared and throw his forearm in shannon brown then start moving back….shannon probly woulda possibly jumped over him and made it n this dunk woulda been replayed for CENTURIES

  • james

    i meant shoulder not forearm*

    Shannon Brown should join next year’s slam dunk contest! I am 100% certain that that won’t be a humiliating failure!

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    That would be the dunk of the playoffs… Next time Shannon!

  • Noel

    This blew my mind. How can you jump that high and be so terrible in a dunk contest

  • kh

    That was fun to watch!
    I love how Kobe and Shannon walked back to the bench like “what”. The Lakers are rolling right now, they looked real good last night.

  • james

    and to all the people who wanna comment about his dunk contest fail ima just say one thing dunking in-game is different from a dunk contest. so please dnt talk about the dunk contest

  • Thedon

    wtf.. why post this crap?

  • unrel

    @james.. i agree.. just look at Shawn Kemp..

  • deano

    if converted……GOAT POSTER EVER!!!!!! I’m tellin you one of these days Shannon is gunna mess around and do the illest dunk EVER! dude got springs and boosters at the same time lol

  • riggs

    @james: yeah wed rather forget what he did in the dunk contest, for all eternity.

  • Logues

    unrel: u just compared shawn kemp to shannon brown(wow), which reminds me, how bout a lister blister SLAMUP?

  • miller126

    …”He jumped OVER”….Everything!

  • Nawlins Realest.

    i hate this guy…..he always does the same type of dunk….ok he can jump really high, but he never does anything different….i support dontletshannondunk.com.

  • http://freewebs.com/galacreativa Gus

    agree, don´t let shannon dunk, heck, make it an instant technical foul if he tries so…by the way, Suns in 6

  • Yesse

    I wish he would have made that one. That is seriously crazy and i still can’t believe how he messed up the slam dunk contest with a leap like that.

  • Thedon

    So we’re posting missed dunk attempts now?.. whaddafuccck

  • Thedon

    So we’re posting missed dunk attempts now?.. whaddafuccck

  • DC

    This could have been one of THE best dunks ever, too bad he couldn’t finish…

  • BostonBaller

    That would have been real sweet but he missed so it wasn’t. He got up there but he wouldn’t have cleared his head like VC on Weiss. As far as the dunk contest goes, just b/c you have hops doesn’t mean you are a contest dunker. you have to have creativity and a lot of in game funk dunkers can’t do it without in game situations. Again, that would have been real nice!!!

  • http:slamonline.com Allenp

    I thought this was a charge, honestly.

  • snasty10

    This would have been some nasty spartan on spartan

  • http://www.laumol.nl/weblog Laumol

    Great attempt. Not sure why there wasn’t a charge called. JR was clearly in defensive stance. In the right place. Lakers in 5 though.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_K_O K.O.

    lame that this is even up. almost doesn’t cut it.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    It says “near slamadaday”, its a youtube video, not automatic enshrinement in the HOF, you whiney retards.

  • http://greensweet259@gmail.com Daniel Segura

    thats nasty!!! N-A-S-T-Y!!!! I HAVE SEEN MAN FLY NOW!

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    I was sitting watching the game wondering why they were replaying a missed dunk 17 times, and then i log onto slamonline.com and THE MISS is the slam of the day. Has the game been dumbed down so much that a guy that jumped really high and accomplished nothing is noteworthy?

  • http://kdshgjkhsd.com Boing Dynasty

    @france, He drew a foul, therefore he accomlished somthing. Maybe you should go watch youtube videos of the freethrows if you feel dumbed down. It was the only game on and it was a boring game and 2nd to Kobe busting up Hills ankles thats the highlight.

  • http://www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    Next up – Kobe with the near assist of the night!

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    @Boing You have to be kidding me. If there were no completed dunks yesterday, how about there be no Slam of the day? And it was a lame foul call at that. It was really a charge, but since Richardson didn’t flop and fall to the ground like he got shot, they called a blocking foul. If I wanted video of people jumping over stuff, i’d go to youtube and search highjumps or a circus act.

  • The Reign Man

    Umph Kobe & Shannon, SHAWN KEMP WAS AN IN GAME DUNK GOD !!! Yeah I Said it B!t(he$ !!!!! You tube a Kemp Mix straight autta pure restect, pay hommage & Bown Down When i Come to Your Town….. :-)

  • Kadavour

    dfrance21 “Has the game been dumbed down so much that a guy that jumped really high and accomplished nothing is noteworthy?” See: James, LeBron

  • http://www.motherjones.com AndTheJellosJigglin

    Its not a charge. Watch closely and you will see Richardson turn sideways and stick his elbow out.

    I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!

  • snasty10

    Who the f is snasty?

  • http://big11mel@yahoo.com Big Mel

    Kemp was nasty in the dunk contest Dee Brown just did that gimmick crap pumping up the his shoes,check the highlights.

  • P-MAC

    Yeah we postin missed attempts.. this almost went down.. and to slams credit.. this laker game was the only game running… couldnt post a dunk from any other games…. anyway.. shannon Brown should be given one more crack at it next year in the dunk contest. Right in front of his home team in LA, Lets give him a chance to redeem himself.. Yall know yall want to see it.. so im hopin he doesnt dissapoint this time.. if given another chance.. so let shannon dunk!

  • http://thephotoriot.com davidR

    verrrrry similar to westbrook’s near dunk on bynum in round 1

  • http://thephotoriot.com davidR

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPGYsnqMhLg for westbrook’s near slam on bynum

  • Spetsnaz

    Look at all the armchair superstars on here talking about this as not good enough and shouldn’t be posted! Gimme a break.

  • LA Huey

    Almost doesn’t count. It’s newsworthy (amazing hops!!) but post this as just a regular link. Does not deserve “Slamadaday” anywhere in the title.

  • Jay

    if he just spread his legs, that would have been one of the sickest dunks ever

  • T-Money

    I don’t know if it’s a charge or not but I do know that J-Rich didn’t foul him. The ref blew the whistle because he felt he had to call something.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/CathedralsRecords?feature=mhw4 Earl

    Seriously, you bunch of idiots, how are you supposed to finish a dunk like that? It was an unbelievable attempt, would you rather they put “Gasol On The Fast Break Over Nobody” as the Slamadaday??

  • http://sfdjklf.com Jukai

    Wow, a missed-drunk blown charge call is a slamadaday? SMH. Why don’t we just post gymnastic footage, they jump high!!!

  • matt

    this reminds me of the Deron/Yao missed dunk. would’ve could’ve should’ve

  • http://slamonline.com Dave

    Kemp was the all-time greatest contest dunker to never win.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    this one was fine but westbrook was meaner, on a 7footer too…anton´s back,lol

  • Mike

    man shannon if shannon got his steps and legs right on that- he mightve cleared richardsons head with his balls! i WISH i saw that! best missed dunk of the year

  • Shem

    Dear Lord,

    We are gathered here today to witness the baptism of Jason Anthony Richardson.
