VIDEO: Shannon Brown slips in scary dunk contest fail

In terms of dunk contest standards, Suns guard Shannon Brown's recent dunk attempt at a promotional event in Latvia didn't appear to be an earth-shattering jam, at least from the set up.

That was assuming, of course, that he had actually finished the dunk over three fans laying parallel to the baseline, nowhere near the free throw line.

But things didn't go well for Brown, as he hesitated before the three-point line, chopped his steps, tried to elevate off his left foot and instead, skidded awkwardly backwards, somehow avoiding an awful injury.

I'm sure first-year Suns coach Jeff Hornacek is thrilled to see that.
