Not only does this years NBA Defensive Player of the Year receive a lesson in what it takes to truly deny someone at the rim by Lebron James, he also proved that not all Poster Children are those who get dunked on.
There were many (myself included) who felt as though Lebron should have been the Defensive Player of the Year, and whether or not he was upset at not getting that award we may never know. But we do know that you can’t just come into the lane all willy-nilly, whether it be a chase down block or just a straight up rejection like this one here.
Tyson shouldn’t feel too bad, what sometimes gets overlooked on plays like this is what happens afterwards, and the Knicks did get a three pointer out of the deal, not a bad compromise. Too bad they lost the series though.
