      @Why Yoj dude it was a block from behind on a role player 😂 it’s not like he was guarding the guy one on one, which lets face it his defense is garbage compared to Jordan, the steal Jordan made on Malone is way more impressive as the player Jordan stole it from was the best player on the other team who by the way won the MVP in 99, he stole the ball and sealed the win, Lebrons block is a joke in comparison

    • Why Yoj
      Why Yoj

      @Jason Hardaway because I use facts too prove something then I get mad when you question my intelligence I’m sorry that I’m just a normal person who loves basketball and your a person who only likes basketball just Tom hate on lebron like idk how it’s possible to say this block is unimpressive but a steal is more impressive like I’m sorry it sounds like your hating even skip bay less gave the play props so you know your a hater when you hate lebron more than skip does and that’s just facts

    MJs game winning play against the Jazz on the 98 finals was the most clutch. People just remember that last jumper but right before that there was a HUGE steal by MJ that turned the tide of the game.

  • Chris Runyon

    I'd say Birds steal from Thomas's inbound pass was the best ever


    Bicycle built for 2 is one of the dumbest things Skip has ever peddled (pun intended).

    I think ray allen shot is a bit overrated in terms of being the best shot. It didn't even win the game I would put jordans game winner over it and others honestly because they won the game.

    Y’all Lebron fans are insane this no chance the best and highest skilled defensive play ever, maybe the biggest but not the best. saying skips reaching when he’s not at all, you all just apparently want to have lebrons kids

    The conversation was over when Sharpe said, “If Lebron doesn’t block the shot, does he score” simple enough lmao

    I'm not a Lebron fan at all, but I'm fair and realistic. Skip is a hater. A block is a block.

    If LeBron ain't block that. Iggy mightve scored. N kyrie shot may not have been possible or a winning shot

    On May 7, 1995, Reggie Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds to beat the New York Knicks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.That's the most clutch defense/offense sequence I've ever seen go down.

    Saying what Jr did was greater is like saying what Chris Bosh did was greater than the Ray Allen Shot.

  • nodws mpo

    Skip could’ve ended this mans whole career if he brought up Chris Bosh’s rebound and pass to ray Allen as the greatest hustle play of all time

    Lebum shot 0-4 in the final 4 minutes of that game. The ONLY highlight was the block. And Kyrie clutch 3 pointer that won the game for them. Best defensive play ever? 😂🤣😂

    It can not be the best play since it was actually goal tending per NBA officals after review. Pinning the ball is goal tending. Basket good warrios win. Lebron was given the championship. Rule No. 11, Section I, e. RULE NO. 11-BASKET INTERFERENCE-GOALTENDING Section I-A Player Shall Not: e. Trap the ball against the face of the backboard after it has been released. (To be a trapped ball, three elements must exist simultaneously. The hand, the ball and the backboard must all occur at the same time. A batted ball against the backboard is not a trapped ball.)

    These two are beyond annoying at this stage. If it is Lebron making a play, Skip doesn't approve, if it's MJ making a play, Shannon doesn't approve. When they are speaking about a topic objectively then it is good viewing but anytime Lebron/MJ come into it (which is a lot on this show), it becomes childish.

    We cannot discredit LeBron’s block. It was a GREAT defensive play!

  • jvtherrien

    There's been better blocks/defensive plays over the entire history of the league, but given the circumstance(s), I don't disagree with anyone saying it's the best defensive play ever. Personally I think that Tayshaun Prince's block on Reggie Miller in game 2 of the 2004 ECF was a better play, and maybe Bam Adebayo's block on Tatum or whoever it was against the Celtics in the bubble was a better play, but none rises above Bron's block on Iggy in that game

    skips trolling at this point. smh, tv is so trash haha

    Wouldn’t have taken a 3 down 2. If you argue that Bron wouldn’t have won the game against the Pacers down 2 (if his block was called a goaltend), you have to acknowledge that the block set up the shot

  • Ts MiNiReZ

    Yo how tf skip saying K Love was only relevant when he played with bron? Bro Twolves Love was a beast even better than when he played with bron. Skip out of his mind on that take 😂😂😂😂

    Shannon and the rest of you delusional Bronsexuals please get off of Lebrons 🥜 🌰 because Jordan stealing the ball from Malone was better. Off of his steal he went down and hit the game winning shot!

    Why is skip asking if JR wasn’t there where tf would he be lmaooo

  • Josh Collier
    Josh Collier

    I have no problem with this being the greatest defensive play. If you take into account the circumstances, only a couple others are in the conversation... Bird’s steal to assist, and Jordan’s stripping the ball to the iconic shot. Of course, there may be more “highlight” plays (I like Ginobili’s block on Harden from behind) but those first 3 I mentioned are probably most memorable because of the situation.

    Birds play is better but finals makes Brons block bigger. Tayshaun Prince block is better but to be the best it usually has to take place in the finals. Tie game isn't a big deal. MJ stole the ball when they were down after he already scored the last 6 pts. But Brons block is a better looking highlight. JR is an unsung hero in this play but there's no need to nitpick really. Yeah chase down blocks look great, (wizards Mj has the best 1 ever) and aren't as tough as face to face blocks but they won. Give jr credit but u can't give him more than bron. He made iggy adjust but iggy scores if bron doesn't chase.

  • Victor Herrera

    How tf does the block not bein an "in your face" block and instead being a " sneak attack" block, if that makes any sense anyway, change the magnitude of the play? Skip needs to go lol

  • ThatDudeDeezy

    It’s sad how I know for an absolute FACT that if it was jr who got the block and lebron was the one who “slowed down” it would be an entirely different story about how kyrie ALONG with jr saved lebrons legacy 😂😂😂
