Default Anyone else see Wade's block of Joe Johnson's dunk attempt?

It was ranked #4 on NBA.com plays of the night, but you've gotta be kidding me, it was sick stuff, it should have been #1 and probably a top 5 block for the year.

Now with video:

His block on Brook Lopez this year was better. A 7 footer going up for a dunk and rejected by a 6'4 guard.

Eh, star or no star, blocking a 270lbs center going up for a dunk is more impressive for me.

jo johnson doesn't really have the atheltiicsm to out jump..or facialize anybody. Not much of a leaper, so he should of known better.

dood should of stuck with his soft floaters. Its a more difficult move to defend in my oppinion.

/wade is da man

JJ only dunks maybe once a month, if that. Blocking one of his dunks is hardly noteworthy since he doesn't have much hops.

The main issue with this game is that the Hawks won, taking a 2.5 game lead on Miami for the 4th spot and taking the lead in the season series 2-1.

The Hawks are playing the Cavs on ESPN tomorrow. This will be only their second national TV game in recent memory.

If you like to ignore who Tracy McGrady is. The man averaged 1.9 BPG in 99-00, not to mention he played 6 less MPG than Wade. But, then again McGrady has a good 4 inches on Wade.
