Larry Sanders is the NBA’s best shot-blocker. This is an inarguable fact, even if Serge Ibaka averaged more blocks per game and JaVale McGee averaged more blocks per 48 minutes last season.
Sanders is not quite the most dominant defensive player in the league — as someone attempted to convince the world using advanced statistics last year — but watching him play, there is no question. He’s the best shot-blocker in the game. Period.
Of course, that might be only because his toddler son isn’t yet old enough to bring the ruckus on his papa in the pros.

Check out little Sanders’ hangtime in the Instagram video below.

It appears the Oklahoma City Thunder are a hot topic of conversation on Egyptian news networks — at least for one guy, in particular.
One thing that’s bugging us, though: it appears he was a Seattle Supersonics fan, and then became an Thunder fan, which is a little weird, considering we didn’t think those people actually existed. Oh well. Carry on.
