The Other Paper:
LeBron James has called DeAndre Jordan's amazing monster jam over Brandon Knight the "Dunk of the year" and the game-stopping moment has taken on a life of its own. The Staples Center slam, after an alley-oop pass from Clippers teammate Chris Paul, has been debated and shown ad nauseam on ESPN and already immortalized in The New Yorker.
Now you too can get posterized by Jordan and not feel any of the humiliating aftereffects and all you need is a credit card.
It didn't take long to find a photo — of what will become this Jordan's iconic image over the course of his career — to freeze-frame the play for eternity. The photo of Jordan's dunk is already for sale at the NBA Store.com and an 8x10 can be had for $14.99 ($69.99 framed).
Although there is nothing fancy about the dunk, the raw power of Jordan and the mismatched attempt to block the shot by the Pistons' Knight make it legendary.
Probably more so to Clippers fans.

Here’s the dunk, for reference:
The Heat and LeBron James may have went on to win their 20th game in a row last night over the Sixers but for a moment during the game, all eyes were on Jrue Holiday and his spectacular dunk on James.
During the nip-and-tuck game, late in the 4th quarter, Holiday got free into the lane when he went up at the rim only to catch James trying for the block when Jrue caught him.
