Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Flies Down Floor For Epic Chase-Down Block Of Tim Hardaway

No, long-time Detroit Pistons fans. That’s isn’t Tayshaun Prince running down Reggie Miller for an iconic block to seal a win over the Indiana Pacers in the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals. Stakes aside, though, this incredible chase and authoritative swat by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is arguably more impressive.

Look where the sophomore guard is when Tim Hardaway, Jr. catches the ball:

Talk about elite athleticism and maximum effort coming together.

KCP was helped by Hardaway taking his sweet time, too, but could you really blame him? It seemed like he had all the time in the world. Obviously, Caldwell-Pope has a better grasp of his speed and explosiveness than the rest of us.

The Pistons and New York Knicks are locked in a close one late.
