DeAndre Jordan posterizes ESPN’s Charissa Thompson (Video)

Ball Don't Lie

"Posterizing." Pretty amazing when done by one student to another in a high-school hallway:

A little bit less so when done by an NBA center to a young lady in sandals:

But still, generally speaking, pretty good. (Probably wouldn't have killed you to at least double-pump or something, though, DeAndre Jordan.)

Before the Los Angeles Clippers big man got some hallway hang time on ESPN host Charissa Thompson, he joined Thompson and former NFL player Marcellus Wiley on "SportsNation" to relive his monstrous alley-oop dunk on Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight, a violent finish that inspired Knight's sense of humor, T-shirts and strong defenses of shot-blocking, even when things don't end well.

On one hand: Yes, this was a cardboard cutout of Knight rather than the real thing. On the other: I wonder if DeAndre noticed any difference.

Reached for comment about Jordan's ESPN performance, Vinny Del Negro and Lionel Hollins said, "Meh."
