Dee Brown’s Dunking Feat
Date: 1995-96 season
Boston’s first-round pick in the 1990 NBA Draft, Dee Brown became most famous for his “no-look” dunk to win the 1991 Slam Dunk Contest. Brown’s achievement was unique not only because he was the first Celtics player to win the Dunk Contest – he was also the first to ever participate. He recalled, “When my name came up, it was like, ‘A Celtic in the dunk contest?’” The fan favorite later suited up with this jersey during the 1995-96 season.
