Spud Webb on Shannon Brown

Spud WebbIn 1986, Spud Webb – all 5’7” of him – put on a ridiculous performance to win the Slam Dunk Contest.

Twenty-four years later, Spud will be judging the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest, featuring Lakers guard (and air traffic control violator) Shannon Brown.

“I haven’t gotten to see him all that much, but from what I hear, he jumps out of the gym,” said Spud. “Everybody I talk to says, ‘That’s my favorite, that’s my favorite, that’s my favorite.

“He gets up high and he’ll hopefully be creative in his dunks. I just want to see a new winner, so hopefully he can come up.”
