So far, it seems as if the Lakers' Shanon Brown will not be participating in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest during the All-Star weekend in Dallas.

Brown is the FIRST player i want to see in the Dunk Contest and so far it seems as if he isn't getting an invite.

"In what may be a surprise in Los Angeles is Shannon Brown having not been contacted by the NBA to be a contestant. The Lakers guard has had his fair share of highlight slams, which can be seen at www.letshannondunk.com.

Brown has made it clear he still wants to be in the contest.

"It's something I want," he said Friday. "We're supposed to find out by Monday. That's the announcement to the world." "

I'm not suprised at all about his....if Lebron is really getting in this then the NBA might want to make it easy for Lebron since he only has 1 dunk, Shannon Brown would steal all of the shine for Lebron and I dout Stern or the NBA front office is gonna want that.

with derozan and gordon fighting it out for the last spot? i dont think so. bron has nothing to gain against rookies and 2nd/3rd yr players.

GO DEROZAN!!!

We've only ever seen LeBron dunk in games. Where's the "1 dunk" **** coming from?

Brown is 2x the dunker Gordon is and no1 can say otherwise, so why is Gordon even getting a CHANCE to get in and Brown not? Gordon himself said he was surprised that he was invited and that he thought IF ANYTHING he would be invited to the 3 PT shootout.

I've never actually seen Shannon Brown, is he really good or does he get hype from being a Laker.

I honestly don't hate any team, but the Lakers get annoying just due to all the hype about them BUT i can't hate on Shannon Brown. He just springs up and slams it home.

he's a hell of a dunker and has a good mid-range game

but he needs to work with his ballhandling

WHAT ABOUT THIS??

During Thursday night's action on TNT, the NBA announced DeMar DeRozan will take on Eric Gordon at the rookie-sophomore game during All-Star Weeekend for the fourth and final spot in this year's dunk contest. (The consensus seems to be DeRozan takes it in a walkover, but we'll see.) That takes care of one spot in this thing, but what about the rest? Nike might've accidentally jumped the gun and leaked one of the other contestants if the Nike Basketball Blog is to be believed. (Link requires a NikeBasketball.com password.)

A post came across from the Nike Basketball Blog this morning touting the Shannon Brown iD Slam Dunk Design Contest. So, one would assume you've got to be in the dunk contest to have this thing for fans.

The Contest starts on or about 8:00 am Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on January 15, 2010 and goes through 12:00 am (PST) on January 18, 2010 (the “Entry Period”). Contestants are required to visit http://go.nike.com/02gee2ll and customize a Kobe V iD for Shannon Brown to consider wearing during the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest. Upon the completion of their design, contestants must take a screen grab of their design and upload to the fan photo gallery on Nike Basketball’s Facebook Fan Page (http://www.facebook.com/nikebasketball). Contestants can upload their design by simply posting their photo on the Nike Basketball Facebook Fan Page Wall.
Sprite sent out a press release yesterday afternoon about an event on Monday, Jan. 18 with artist Dan Dunn, who will be speed painting each dunker to reveal the remaining three participants. (Example of Dunn's work here. It's at Penn Station at 11 a.m. ET on Monday, Jan. 18.) It looks like Dan can paint one fewer participant, if this contest is correct.

Shannon has always been a great dunker, being on the Lakers just helped him get his name out there. in any case the kid deserves a chance. i think he can win it all unless LeBron is in and the NBA decides to rig it ala Nate Robinson.

I'll be very surprised if he isn't the dunk contest. he's been way too hyped up this season not to be there, and deserves it as well.

He's a hell of a dunker and has some sick moves. He really should be in the dunk contest. Really deserves it with the amount of air he can get when setting up for a dunk

Shannon Brown (barring the fact that he's a Laker) is probably the one element that will put this Slam Dunk Contest over everything else during all-star wkend. It's gonna suck without him. Who should be in the dunk contest, a nobody like Joe Alexander or something :rolleyes:

If he's not even invited, let alone in, I'm honestly not going to watch it. Lebron is going to face guys like Gordon and DDR? Yup, totally not fixed or anything.
