A former member of the Los Angeles Lakers got in a late highlight against his old team in the closing minutes of a Friday night game at Staples Center.

Phoenix Suns guard Shannon Brown threw down a big putback dunk against the Lakers with a little more than four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Brown crashed the boards untouched by Lakers big men Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, sneaking in to snare the ball with his left hand before clutching it with both hands to throw it down with two hands.

Brown, 26, is averaging a career-high 9.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game after signing with the Suns in December. Long known as a high flier, Brown competed in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest. 

The Lakers went on to win, 111-99. Brown finished with 15 points and 1 rebound on 6-for-11 shooting in 20 minutes for Phoenix.

Heres' the video of Phoenix Suns guard Shannon Brown throwing down against his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers.

Wow! A Sox fan and a Yankee fan agree on something! _Kitch, wasn't ranting, its just getting old all these dunks of the week that are average but blown up to look crazy good.  And yes, I admit I'm not a big Brown fan either.

In todays NBA, that dunk was average at best. Could i do it? Not a chance, not with a ladder and a trampoline. Still.....average dunk.

Since when has this type of dunk became thunderous? Sure it is a nice throw down but thunderous, I don't think so.  I don't know whats going on in the NBA lately but it seems that there are some new dunk every other night that is supposed to be the best dunk of the year and some would be in competition for the title but this is just funny.  Give me Blake Griffin on the court and he can show us what a truly thunderous dunk is!
