He is not the most prolific shot blocker in the league, not at all. He is the most entertaining though. He has made it cool. He gets a lot of pub from it. It's good that he's doing it too. All his blocks are off of shear hustle and determination...and obviously his freakishness.

Watching him block shots is one of the most amazing things in basketball right now. He does "only" average 1 a game though.

He blocks shots unlike most players...and does it consistently. It's different than Dikembe standing in the paint swatting things coming at him. Bron gets them from behind where no one has any business blocking shots from. I think his shot blocking is the most entertaining of anyone who's ever played this game. Every time it's a highlight real. That's great.

I'd say him and Gerald Wallace are the two best "chase down" shot blockers at the SF position right now.

I still think guys are better off knocking the ball to themselves or a team-mate instead of blasting the ball into the stands, but there's no question that the fans get up when LeBron blocks a shot more than most other players.

NBA games are boring enough half of the time as it is, bringing in a block like that gets momentum going, and fans cheering, I'd prefer it over a regular block, of course unless, it prevents your team from winning, then it's a problem.

I agree. But I'd imagine it's real hard to block it lightly flying full speed, extending as far as possible, and with your back towards your teammates. I can't really imagine any of those blocks in the OP's highlight being blocked to a teammate. I mean, he's chasing guys from like 50 feet behind.

Dwight does have that problem though sometimes. Players blocking head on can be more aware for sure.

If you do bat it to a team-mate, it can lead to fast break opportunities, meaning plenty of highlights ;) :p

Yeah it definitely is harder to tap it to a team-mate when you're chasing the play down like that, although in LeBron's case he gets up so high that he could probably grab the ball as if it was a rebound sometimes :p

I should mention that his hustle is to be commended though. It's always good to see your superstar putting that type of effort into getting back on defense, we all know how frustrating it is to give up lay-up after lay-up because your guys aren't getting back.

No. The shot block never went out of style to begin with. And LBJ doesn't even rank in the top 30 of BPG. All he's got is the chase-down as that video said. I honestly cant think of any time where ive seen him just block a shot in the paint, obviously its happened nothing just sticks out to me. Wade gets the same kind of blocks and its way more impressive as he much smaller. I can think of guys who do it with more consistency and just as much flash too. Howard, Dalembert, Anderson, G Wallace, Tyrus Thomas, josh Smith...

I bet you have never seen D Wade block shots. His blocks are as flashy as anyone if not flashier and he is way more consistent as a blocker than most SF's despite being only 6'4"..

That's a word! The shot block has always been a cool play and has never gone out of style. Blocking somebody's shot is a bigger deal than getting dunked on in my book. LBJ has some amazing blocks, no doubt about it (though that J-Rich/360 dunk is awesome, I still love Nate Robinson's block on Yao: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt5pOPn_0Ik).

As for LBJ's blocks, they are fun to watch, but the Alonzo Mourning/Bill Russell style block is better for the team. Hakeem and Robison used to do the same thing, and that is to block the shot but not swat it away, just block it downward and then get the ball, that way you block the shot and get possession. Of course it is much harder to do that on transition plays. LBJ is usually coming out from the wing to block shots where as those centers are usually blocking shots in the post.

This thread though is a great excuse to watch an awesome montage og block shots! Thanks for sharing :)

I'm not doubting that or anything. LeBron's blocks are great and entertaining. I'm just stating generally, in response to the thread title, that I've always thought blocks were exciting and "cool". It didn't take LeBron's blocks to do that for me.

Love it brotha. Finally someone that speaks the truth. One thing though, he did have that block on Durant a few nights back. I have been saying this for a while now, and no one wanted to hear it. Its all highlight blocks and never a 1 on 1, half court block. It is never his man. LeBron being considered a great defender is straight rediculous now. He is a very solid help defender, but as a man to man guy, he aint as impressive as people make him out to be. These blocks he gets are sometimes straight rediculous, but they arent because he is an intelligent defender, just a little bit of extra effort, which not many NBA players show. LeBron should, and could end up being, the greatest player to ever walk the earth. Problem is, he relies on his athleticism too much and in my eyes, you need to have a massive array of skills to be looked upon as the greatest. If this guy had skills like a Kobe, with that athleticism, psshhhh, game set match for the NBA. Believe me, I still see him developing into a skilled player, instead of just using his speed, hops, and the high screen that he works with. All this guy needs is a good hesitation move, athleticism will take over the rest of the way. He backs up to the half court line, waits for the high screen by Varejao (or another big), then drives the lane and jumps from the foul line. They do that play at least 10 times a game. He gets a ton of room on his jumper because of his speed to get to the basket, not the skills he posesses.

With that said, I'm not a hater, just speaking the truth. In my eyes, he has solidified himself as a top two player in the game today, with so much more room to improve. If you think about where he could be in the future, just scary.
Just to get this in, as a partial hate, he has to work on his attitude and not always look for the foul after a play or dance around like a ten year old on the court. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and if you cant take a little hit on the arm, I'm sorry your a *****. They always say the NBA is a Man's league. Men don't dance like douche bags or take dumb photo shoots on the sideline. He doesnt have to market himself as much as he does either. If his play is that great, the market will run itself.

Whoops, the block was never uncool. Defense is the greatest part of basketball and the part that I respect the most. Blocks have always been a way to make the opponent look foolish and gain momentum for your team. Love the block.

He isn't near being the most prolific shot blocker in the league at only 0.9 per game, but he's definitely up there with the most entertaining.

Lebron, J-Smoove and G-Force are great at the chasedown blocks, truly entertaining to watch, but there is the problem of losing possession... something Dwight seems to do this season is grab the ball in mid-air, entertaining, yet still effective.

01-24-2010, 09:51 PM
When I watch cavs games I always look forward to when the other team gets a fastbreak opportunity. They're running the break and I'm looking at the opposite side of my tv screen waiting to see LeBron chase the down the guy on the break and block the shot.

I look forward to seeing his blocks rather than his dunks. Blocking a shot is a lot more difficult and takes more skill than dunking IMO.

Raph12
01-24-2010, 10:06 PM
Guys need to understand that if you're playing against the Cavs and you get out on a fast break, you gotta finish quick and strong at the basket otherwise Lebron will catch you.

Take Courtney Lee for example, he found out the hard way and next time, he knew Lebron was chasing him and threw it down before he could get blocked:

2 things to the OP....
1 stfu and hop off lebrons testicles. i mean seriously??? the block has ALWAYS been cool. its always felt great to block a shot or to demoralize a player who thinks he can score. also lebrons blocks are the equivalent of a steal in the sense that they dont change a game. post players that can block inhibit drives and change a teams game plan. a real stopper can make multiple players second guess which is immeasurable in how much it can benefit your team

2. if th block ever did get uncool. prince was the one that has been most memorable in recent times for it. teh block of reggie miller in the playoffs is still talked about here and there today and is one of the decade nominees. not tryna hate on lebron at all cuz his hustle is good and unfortunately he might be better than kobe as much as i hate to admit that, however he is no way can take credit for sumthing that was never played out to begin with

Kobe Bryant? You gotta be ******** me! Kobe averages .26 blocks a game. Granger averages .96 blocks a game while Lebron averages 1.02. Wade averages 1.23 blocks a game. He is the best shot blocking guard, especially considering how much shorter he is than Lebron or Granger.

imo it's more of an insult if he turns his back and wags his finger but that's just me. saw this special on grizzly bears the other day. winner walks away and shows his back. i'm sure it's true for other beasts as well.

^ it probably made the perosn he blocked super mad. but he was just that good and had every right to wave his finger he was nasty in his prime shot blocking days

Never has the shot block been uncool, and LeBron is not the best shot blocker.

Exactly, the thread starter has no clue what he's talking about. BTW Dwight Howard is by far the most "prolific" shot blocker... Lebron has flashy blocks, but seriously how can the thread starter say he has brought the shot block back when it never left.

This is ridiculously embarrassing for this person

He blocks shots unlike most players...and does it consistently. It's different than Dikembe standing in the paint swatting things coming at him. Bron gets them from behind where no one has any business blocking shots from. I think his shot blocking is the most entertaining of anyone who's ever played this game. Every time it's a highlight real. That's great.

1 block per game??? is that "consistency"?....lebron is a good actor(commercials)...thats why he must make everything so dramatic....tossing up powder...dancing during games....this guy is a clown who belongs in hollywood but he sure can play some basketball

Lebron shots come from behind! I can think of only 2 times he as had a clean block.And Yes D WADE is a better blocker!

:cool:

Yeah, lot more demoralizing and exciting when a guard blocks shots rather than a 6'9 freak of nature does it.

Its really to bad that a quarter of his blocked shots are goal tends and the refs just dont call them because its Labron James and he is lining David Sterns pockets with dough.

Everybody poops, but nobody poops like Lebron James.
