This might not be the prettiest basketball game we’ve ever seen, but it’s great nonetheless.

Check out this outrageous block last night by Eric Bledsoe in the Clippers/Timberwolves game in L.A. Bledsoe gets bumped guarding Alexey Shved on a high ball screen, and instead on giving up on the play and letting his help defense stop Shved on the drive, Bledsoe turns into a video game character and tracks him down.

Kobe Bryant was some kind of comic book character last night in Portland, flooding the Blazers with never-ending buckets and dimes/open looks for his teammates.

Before watching this chase-down block, let me remind you: Dwyane Wade is 6-4, 220 pounds. Eric Bledsoe, on the other hand, is a mere 6-1, 195 pounds. What an impressive stuff. Read More »
This play happened on Friday night, but it would be a crime if most of our readers missed it. We’ve know for a while that Andre Miller is actually super sneaky with his hops [EVIDENCE HERE], breaking them out just enough so that we all know what’s up.
That being said, this block he busted out on Derrick Favors, meeting the big man at the rim, is just outrageous: Read More »
