Shannon Brown's missed dunk attempt still famous

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks


Los Angeles Lakers guard Shannon Brown showed how high everybody who lived in Wonders Hall while attending Michigan State University can jump last night when he tried a ridiculously audacious dunk during Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

The attempt, which originated from darn near the free-throw line, was stopped short by fellow Spartan Jason Richardson, who committed a blocking foul on the play.

While Brown's high-wire act may not have been as spectacular as it could have if he'd have completed it, the video is scorching up the Internet right now. Some are calling it the best missed dunk attempt of all time. I didn't know that was a thing, but maybe it is.

The greatest missed dunk of all time is Vince Carter's catch off the glass from Ed Cota in Carolina's 1998 rout of Duke at the Dean Dome. It's not close. Perhaps Brown's excellent efforts here qualify for best missed NBA dunk ever.
