Which one do you guys think is the most shameful. Its a tough one for me so I'd have to put this in a poll.

Getting dunked on. eg Wade on Verajao, Stat on Tolliver

Getting your dunk blocked eg. Manu on Durant

Getting crossed falling to the ground eg. MJ on Vince

Which is most shameful?

If its a nasty facial then getting dunked on is the worst. Going up and trying to block and dunk and getting raped in the air must be embarrasing.

I'd have to say that being the victim of a sick crossover always looks the worst. But only when the guy actually falls down.

D: All of the above

Example A - VC on Weis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMrPjl-927Q)
Example B - Manu on KG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCqefcY7lpI)
Example C - AI on Daniels (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwFxHiuS6-M&feature=related)

The fact that people make such a big deal about posterizations is so stupid to me, I'd rather the player try to make the defensive play and block the ball instead of just letting the guy dunk uncontested. "Getting dunked on" is just something that immature fans get excited about.

crossovers, cuz you usually end up on the floor.

HOWEVER posterizations are forever (just like diamonds) lol you never see a crossover on a poster where the guy is falling backwards and you know it. it's always about the posterization.

True but when a guy is up high, trying to go for a block can cause a serious injury, like Dwight on Rose. (http://my.nba.com/go/thread/view/81689/22396541/Video:_Derrick_Rose_leaves_game_and_foul_by_Dwight _Howard?pg=last)

1. I don't think getting blocked is a big deal. Every1 gets blocked.
2. Getting posterized is very embarrassing, but i don't think its that bad since ultimately you were doing your job by hustling and trying to get the block. It is the most Flashy and the sexy choice.

3. I think falling from a cross-over is the worst. You can be the worst defender ever so falling has nothing to do with playing great/horrible defense, its just the offensive player changing direction SO quickly that your reflexes fail you and you fall. I think that's the most embarrassing.

The other 3 happens often to. But of those 3, Block shots is the only thing that exerts your dominance over somebody.

Depends...but i'd say

1) Dunked on
2) Crossed over
3) Blocked

When the victim falls, all of these plays just look so much better

Notice this stuff only happens to decent defenders... unless your name is Shawn Bradley.

I'd say dunked on because it is more likely to be remembered. People get crossed all the time and it never makes sportscenter (unless its like sick and they does a spin before hitting the deck), but getting dunk on will be everywhere.

Getting your ankles broken is the worst. The other two you can be more a victim of being in the wrong place in the wrong time (more so with posterization), but with the crossover, you are totally prepared and STILL get owned.

So to rank them:
1) Crossover
2) Getting blocked
3) Posterization

Crossovers are the worst... easily. In the NBA everyone is soo athletic that getting dunked on or blocked on isn't that big of a surprise. But getting crossed up makes you look like a fool.

When someone gets dunked on, everyone goes crazy for the guy that posterized you.
When someone goes the other way and falls on a crossover, everyone is laughing at you.
I don't have any personal experience with ^^ since I'm the guy blocking everyone. :)

getting crossed is embarrassing.

but getting dunked on so hard (by someone 7 inches shorter) that you fall back and get your head stuck in your own ***, ala Wade over Varejao....that's gotta take the cake.

i've seen them all when I play ball, so i have to say falling after a sick crossed over. No experience, but I have experienced laughing with everybody at someone who fell.

Berter
04-18-2010, 03:48 AM
actually Dodger bulls, I think you have been crossed over and then the other guy did a 360 windmill dunk and broke the ring which then fell on your head and made you go to hospital and then you couldn't play any more ball

Would you say that's more embarrassing than becoming the first player to have your ankles broken twice on one play? AI on Daniels (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwFxHiuS6-M&feature=related)

I don't think getting dunked on is cause for embarrassment...sometimes it just happens. Getting a dunk blocked happens sometimes someone is just more aggressive and it gets blocked.

Someone using a crossover to get you off balance is quite embarrassing and since its the only one shameful or embarrassing on your list I'll go with it.

If you get your shot blocked... just scream and demand a foul. Get dunked on and demand that the guy used his forearm to prevent you from blocking. You can't really make legit excuses when you fall on your ***....

Wade has that nasty step back. The memphis one was sick. BUt the thing about crossovers is that you have to make the shot (IMO).

I practice Crossovers & Take the shot after, just like Stuckey's. Isn't that what we all dream about? shaking someone out of their shoes, and draining the bucket while they're on the ground. :laugh2:

A crossover that puts the person on the floor. I've seen a lot of poster dunks and dunk blocks, but I RARELY see a crossover that can drop someone. Getting crossed normally is not a huge thing, but if you fall, it's the most shameful thing.
