In a night where LeBron scored 47, 35 in the first half and at one point went for 24 straight points (while the rest of the team beat the half time rush at the concession stands), the night belonged to the OG Superman & lil’ Lex Luther.
Nate Robinson must have got his dates mixed up and thought this was the Slam Dunk Contest. Wrong date + Wrong Superman = the easiest block of Shaq’s life. You gotta love Nate’s moxie, but his teammates shouldn’t have let him drive the lane on Shaq. The Ol’ Diesel’s eyes were as big as silver dollar pancakes when he saw Robinson approaching for the floater. The only thing that could’ve made it better is if Bron came in from the back for one of his signature blocks and ended up high-fiving Shaq in the process. I mean it’s the Knicks; no one would’ve cared right?
However, turn about is fair play & on the next trip down the floor Nate returned the favor by swatting Shaq’s shot. I’m not sure what’s funnier though: the fact that Robinson had to jump three seconds to even block it or the fact that Shaq fell down.
