Watch This Basketball Player Get Kicked In The Head After A Slam Dunk

Corey Brewer of the Philadelphia 76ers added insult to injury -- literally -- after scoring a slam dunk.

The 76ers played the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night.

Brewer made a run towards the basket and dunked the ball in the hoop in spectacular fashion, hanging from the ring for effect.

But as he dropped down from his swing, he accidentally kicked Nuggets forward Torrey Craig in the back of the head.

Craig lay dazed on the court for a few moments, before he recovered and continued to play.
