Greatest Missed Dunk of All Time

It didn’t happen during a slam dunk contest, where players whip out their fanciest moves without risking a game. Nope, this slam dunk happened during a REAL game. In traffic.

Dunk Tank

The only reason we can think of for Shannon Brown of the Los Angeles Lakers to pull out such a risky move during the team’s Game 1 against the Pheonix Suns is he was trying to make up for disappointing his fans during this year’s slam dunk contest.

Halfway through the fourth quarter of an otherwise standard game of basketball, Brown tried to pull of Dwight Howard’s famous Superman Dunk from 2008:

Missed Opp

Even though Brown missed, we’re still amazed he even tried to pull off that move. Actually, the miss was so epic, people started calling it the best missed dunk of all-time pretty much instantly. You be the judge. Check out the stills and let us know what you think in the Comments section below:

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
