There’s not many highlights in the NBA better than watching an incredible dunk.
One of the things that might be able to claim parity however is when a star is thwarted in his attempt to perform an incredible dunk- and by thwarted I mean stopped by an opponent mid-dunk.
And in that respect they really don’t come much better than this.
Despite the fact that the Portland Trail Blazers were victorious over the Orlando Magic, one of the undoubted highlights was definitely Victor Oladipo’s block on Damian Lillard’s fast-break dunk attempt.
Lillard didn’t necessarily do anything wrong, so much as Oladipo doing something exceptionally right.
Throw in the fact that Lillard has been tipped by none other than Kobe Bryant to make the All-Star Team for 2014, and this may just be one of the most sensational blocks of the season.
