1991 NBA slam dunk champion sitting court side pre-game

Before the Sacramento Kings Vs. Brooklyn Nets game in BK we looked out over across the court and saw this legend on the court relaxing and enjoying the usual NBA pre-game rituals. Dee Brown the 1991 NBA slam dunk champion spoke with us about his legendary night on all-star weekend 23 years ago when he pumped up his Reebok sneakers and was the first guy to pull off a no-look dunk. We also ask him why NBA superstars are so afraid to enter the dunk contest today, and what he thinks it will be like next season when the event will be held on the Barclay Center court. We also speak to him about his early NBA days where he was drafted and played with Larry Bird, Kevin Mchale, Robert Parrish and the historic Boston Celtics. Was there much rookie hazing? Dee also speaks on the physicality of the NBA now and then when he was in a league with the likes of Isiah Thomas, Michael Jordan and such.

    Mr. Samori,

    That was a great interview with Dee Brown. I remember him when he played College ball and then came to Boston. He had an incident with the Boston Police his first time in the City. He was hugging his girl friend of that time who just happened to be a young white lady. Some old woman looked out of her window and saw a black guy with his arms around a white woman and called the police. Boston’s finest arrived with guns out and placed Dee Brown on the ground. Next time you meet him, please ask is that the way it happened? Once again, that was a great interview and Dee Brown explains himself very well. I liked your questions and the interview was smooth and easy. Keep up the great work!
