Oh Shannon Brown – this one is going to live in infamy.

The Phoenix Suns guard who’s probably better known for marrying R&B singer Monica decided to have a little fun during a promotional tour in Latvia. As to why Shannon Brown of all people was on a promotional tour, your guess is as good as mine – but work with me here.

Brown, deciding he wanted to have some fun with the crowd pulled a few spectators from the stands and told them to lay down in the paint. The plan? He was going to run full court and dunk over them, essentially the same dunk (though slightly modified) we see about 93 times during every NBA Slam Dunk competition.

Anyway, Brown backed up to the other side of the court while the fans laid down in the paint. All was well.

Brown took off and hit the key where he launched himself into the air, slamming the dunk home, sending all the spectators into a frenzy, right?

Err, not exactly.

I’ll let you do the honors, Shannon:

Yeah, that left a mark.

    While I wish no real harm on Shannon Brown, my second thought [first one was ouch] was “this solves one Suns problem”.
