Two defensive plays stand out in NBA Eastern Conference playoffs.
Normally plays on defence don’t grab the same headlines as say, an alley-opp or a posterising dunk in the NBA.
Try telling that Miami’s LeBron James and Indiana’s Roy Hibbert.
Both players have pulled off two of the best blocks seen in recent history in the NBA, as they denied opponents from easy jams with powerful rejections at the rim.
But who’s was better?
fanatix beleives King James’ effort was the better of the two and here’s why.
James traditionally plays the standard small forward role while Hibbert, at 7ft 2in, is one of the more physically dominant big men in the league.
While it is true James breaks the mould with what a ‘three’ is capable of on a basketball court, the fact his block was against Tiago Splitter, who at 6ft 11in and 240lbs, is bigger than the Heat superstar gives him the edge, especially as it was so clean a stop.
But what do you think?
