The block itself wasn't that great, but the situation it was in made it memorable.

Thats what im trying to say, the only reason why this block was so amazing was because of the situation it was in. You put that same block in the regular season in the 1st quarter, and basically no one would remember.

He's arguing that a block from behind is way better a block infront of your man.

I think its a block infront of your man. What do you guys think?
Where you come from to block the shot isn't anywhere near as important as where the ball goes after you block it.

Yep, thats true.
But the argument was which block was better. It has nothing to do where the ball goes, just what you think is better overall.

I prefer blocks that come from an angle, but not necessarily behind the guy, as long as they get pinned or thrown on the glass. It always looks nasty.

Well then, assuming that the same thing happens after the block in both situations, it absolutely doesn't matter to me.

If one looks cooler to you, whatever. I'm much more concerned about what happens after the block.

personally the blocks that look the best to me have always been the ones where the guy who does the block controls it himself. I know durant did one earlier this year on somebody but cant remember who. Im not talking about pinning it on the glass and then controlling it. ill try to find a youtube of the type of block im talking about.

I prefer coming out of nowhere and getting it really good.. after it leaves the guys hands. a true swat.

my best block ever was in a pickup game and this dude that kind of pissed me off took it in weak/showoffy and tried one of those up and under layups like Lamar Odom did against the Wolves... and I was frustrated so I just swiped at the ball as hard as I could and to my surprise I actually caught it, after it left his hand, right in the middle, and it slammed against the wall behind the basket.

my second greatest was a block on a baseline floater with me descending from the elbow. I was playing with a mean streak that game and I was super amped so the guy kind of puts the floater up from around head-level and I just jump in the air and wildly swat at the air..... I tagged it with just my fingertips, and it was really acrobatic, and I got it so that it went straight up in the air and it fell into my hands when I landed. I know that ball was basket-level when I got it. I don't think I've ever jumped higher than that.

I've probably had better pure blocks but those ones stick in my mind because they were on good players. anyone can swat some tiny scrub that doesn't know what he's doing.

blocking shots is definitely my favorite part of basketball.
