If you ever wondered why Mikki Moore failed with the Celtics last season...this is why. Watching the video, I'm not sure whether Shannon Brown bowled Moore over or if a stray breeze knocked Mikki down. Thanks to Wild Yams for the link.

He also failed as a King. But so did a lot of other players last year as well......

That wasn't bawful at all. At least he was trying to draw a charge instead of just getting out of the way.

That looked like Laker propaganda to me.

Mr. Bawful: ever the Laker propagandist.

What's interesting about Mikki Moore is that even though he failed as a King, Celtic and now as a Warrior, he succeeded as a Clipper (and not in the ironic sense that to succeed as a Clipper you must fail, a la Keith Closs; but rather he succeeded in the real sense that he was actually good when he was with the Clippers).

Shannon Brown needs to be in the dunk contest this year. The dude supposedly has a 45 inch vertical. Here's another example of his leaping ability (this time with Super Mario on the receiving end of an ego-ectomy).

I must say I enjoyed that Shannon/Farmar/Artest combination

@Wild Yams - Yep, he'd be great in the dunk contest. That video is awesome, love the reaction of the Lakers bench.

as a jason kidd fan, i have to say that making Mikki Moore a big contract player and causing everyone to think he was legit that one season has got to be one of his greatest achievements.

Mikki Moore, whatever. Brown gets up. Wild Yams, that block on West is so ridiculous... Brown's head is at the rim, and he's 6'4" at most.

What I think is great about Brown is that he seems to not quite realize how high he can jump. Maybe he does now, but in that West block he seemed genuinely surprised to have practically jumped over the guy.

I'm with anon. JKidd should get a percentage of former Nets' salaries.
