Dee Brown on the advice he offered Jaylen Brown for the Dunk Contest

Saturday night was not the first time a player wearing a No. 7 jersey represented the Boston Celtics in the NBA’s Dunk Contest, with Dee Brown doing it decades before Jaylen did. On a recent episode of the “Showtime with Michael Cooper,” the elder Brown shed some light on his own experiences in the Dunk Contest, as well as the advice he gave to Jaylen for his entry into the historic contest.

The hosts and Dee also get into the role and style of dunking in the league today, and how it has changed over the years. Whether you’re a die-hard basketball fan or just love a good sports story, this episode is packed with insider insights, laughter, and legendary tales that you won’t want to miss.
