On the surface, James Johnson‘s blocks doesn’t look all that impressive. But give it a second look. Check out the work Johnson puts in before the block, tracking Arron Afflao, and jumping with, but not into, him. Then watch Johnson’s insane extension on the block, how it looks like if he strained just an iota more, his shoulder would pop from the socket. That’s a tremendous effort that leads to a tremendous play.
It may not be one of those blocks that makes you jump out of your chair, but that doesn’t make it any less spectacular.
