After LeBron James’ epic block last night I wanted to compile a few videos showing NBA legends doing their best attempts at shot blocking. Do any of these videos compare to what LeBron was able to do last night? Lets take time of game and importance of the game out of the equatuion and just focus on the player and the block itself. Happy viewing Baconators. Michael Jordan Sorry Chicago Bulls fans, here is our former savior blocking Ron Mercer in a Washington Wizards uniform. Kobe Bryant Not wanting to give up the NBA best player crown, Kobe Bryant takes it LeBron in the All Star game TWICE. Carmelo Anthony The man known for only his offensive skills, Carmelo Anthony comes up with a huge block on James Harden. Shaquille O’Neal Monster center, monster block. Heads up front row!!!! Kevin Durant What a block by Mr. Durant. Holy **** it was like it was in slow mo. Holla! After viewing the videos which is your favorite rejection? Don’t base it on your favorite player, rather the block itself. Like looking at a chick, do not base it on just the face. Look at the total package. How far does the ball go? Does the other player look astonished? Did the blocked players team get the ball back?   OTHER ARTICLES YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: 5 things a Cleveland fan would rather see than LeBron James win a second ring Ranking the players 30 to 1: who should you root for to win an NBA Championship?

Kevin Durant’s Instagram account was hacked

If you are hoping to see Kevin Durant finally say something stupid, this isn’t the case.

But it appears as if Durant really was hacked on Instagram, but it does not appear as if anything terrible...

Spurs rout unrecognizable Heat

Game Two was the kind of game good teams have nightmares about. The defense and principals of a team break down and it leads to an onslaught of highlights and talk that makes a player and a team doubt itself. Especially when the stakes are so high. The only thing a team can do to fight all this off is to respond the next time out. San Antonio HAD to respond the next time out and...
