The people have spoken and the NBA has listened. Thanks to the grass roots efforts of the fans - and a serious collection of poster dunks - Shannon Brown will be among the participants in the 2010 NBA Dunk Contest.
Congrats to Shannon! We know he’ll represent with style for the Purple and Gold in Dallas.
His ridiculous rise is far from a secret these days considering the way Shannon started this season and given his exploits from high school, to college and some of his other stops in the NBA prior to arriving in Los Angeles. But he’s definitely become a SportsCenter regular as a member of the Lake Show.
Now that Dwight Howard and that scared puppet in Cleveland have pulled out, there’s a good chance of ShanWow actually winning the contest.
Best of luck, Shannon. After February 13th there will be no more sleeping on #12.
