On Wednesday at the U.S. Senior Open’s Chevron Junior Day Exhibition, our Cody Stavenhagen reported that former Oklahoma State basketball star Desmond Mason issued a challenge to another former Cowboys high flyer, Brooklyn Nets guard Markel Brown.

The challenge? A dunk contest. A slam showdown that Brown happily accepted Wednesday via Twitter.

 

Brown said the dunk-off will be a charitable event.

 

 

And to hype it up even more, Mason and Brown proceeded to have a fun exchange — a Twitter blow-for-blow of their highlight-reel dunks via YouTube videos (some of which were included in Brown's list of his top 10 dunks at OSU).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep your fingers crossed that this will actually happen and your eyes on newsok.com for updates on when and where the dunk-off is going down.
