Shannon Brown may have fallen short in his quest to become the first Laker since Kobe Bryant to win the NBA Slam Dunk crown, but last night he proved that’s not cos of a lack of hangtime. The young backup guard caught a Pau Gasol alley oop behind his head and cranked it down in devistating fashion. Brown was wearing the Nike Zoom Kobe V ‘Big Stage’, but today we’re taking a second look at his ‘Throw it Down’ PE he was slated to wear at the aforementioned dunk contest.
These ZKVs offer accent colors from the three primary shades of light, and combined with an iridescent graphite/grey upper, this is one of the most unique colorways to come along in recent years. We hope to see ‘Throw it Down’ editions of other shoes, but until they become as common as the Bill Walton exclamation, check out more images of the original, plus video of that amazing jam, after the jump. via HK-Kicks
