It’s admirable whenever a player routinely tries to block a defender’s dunk attempt. That’s what made Alonzo Mourning so special. Granted, Zo got dunked on frequently by taking this approach, but his fearlessness and “I don’t care if I get dunked on” mentality was unique.
LeBron James is the same way, as Tiago Splitter found out tonight, the hard way. Dwyane Wade has this intangible too, which also explains why he gets dunked on a lot.
