Making an effort to block a shot at the rim is always a good thing. It shows a player gives a damn. That being said, doing so in today’s blinding-fast, social media world when fine-tuned, exceptionally trained monsters are barreling towards you occasionally results in what happened to Glen Davis, Marcin Gortat and Shawn Marion at the hands of Paul George, Quincy Acy and Jeff Green.
And, yes, there’s a George “baptizing” someone named “Big Baby” reference in there to be made. But I’ll let you guys handle that sort of heavy lifting.
It should be noted, too, however, that the Pacers, Kings and Celtics all lost their games. So, yeah, that’s that.
