Shannon Brown Hasn’t Been Contacted about Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

Shannon Brown Hasn't Been Contacted about Sprite Slam Dunk ContestThis is not good news for dunk fans.  Shannon Brown, one of the dunkingest (that’s a word now) players on this great green globe, apparently hasn’t been contacted by the NBA to participate in the 2010 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.  If they really do choose not to invite Brown, it’ll go down as one of the great oversights in contest history.  I, for one, can’t think of any good reason the NBA would choose to omit Brown, whose above-the-rim artistry has seen him make the highlight reels on a weekly basis.

Check out the clip below to see Shannon Brown talk about his potential participation in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.  The second clip is a monster montage of his finest moments abusing the rim.
