Today Dee Brown celebrates his 44th birthday. He was the Boston Celtics 1st round draft pick in 1990 and became a member of the NBA All-Rookie Team that year. The main highlight of his career was when he won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest with the "no look" dunk in 1991.

Not to take anything away from the dunk but what was more memorable, and what most sneakerheads remember, happened before the dunk when Dee Brown famously pumped up his Reebok Pump Omni Lite's! Thanks to Dee Brown that moment alone ascended The Pumps as one of Reebok's most iconic shoes.
