Nastiest one was a carbon copy of one of those LBJ blocking Rondo on a fast break.

I mean this nicely, but it's interesting to read how many people feel it's necessary to preface their story with a "I don't usually get blocked but. . ." For some reason, getting blocked is embarrassing, right? As in, we can get our dribble ripped, we can throw a pass directly into our opponent's hands, and we can attempt and miss a horrible shot, but none of that affects us like getting blocked.

It happens to everyone though. If you play basketball, you're going to get blocked. It's just interesting how it's become so...humiliating. I'm the same way though. After dunking, pinning someone's shot on the backboard is probably my favorite thing to do on a basketball court. I suppose it's interpreted as an assertion of dominance. It just feels powerful, right? Which I suppose is why it hurts whenever we're on the other end of it.
