Block of the Year: Jason Maxiell Eliminates Tyson Chandler Alley-oop
I promise we'll actually get talking about this March Madness business, but we've got time. First, the rejection Mike Tirico accurately dubbed "block of the year."
As far as I can tell the New Orleans Hornets have one play with a few different options. Tyson Chandler comes up to the back court to set up a pick and roll with Chris Paul. Depending, of course, on how the defenders choose to position themselves either Paul penetrates and what usually happens, Paul throws the ball up somewhere near the rim and Chandler throws it down.
It shouldn't be that easy. Sooner or later, an astute defender on the help side attempt to guard their own hoop. You know, that's sort of the point. Sunday, Jason Maxiell finally eliminated this play in grand fashion.
