IS THIS THE BLOCK OF THE YEAR?
It was an NBA reunion of sorts for Joey Dorsey and Anthony Randolph in Euroleague basketball this past Friday. Both were drafted by NBA teams in 2008 — Dorsey by the Houston Rockets and Randolph with the Golden State Warriors — and both played for multiple NBA teams before winding up in Spain.
So here’s Dorsey, playing for Barcelona, and Randolph, with Real Madrid, meeting at the hoop. Dorsey is going for a monster slam, but his plans are foiled by Randolph, who times things perfectly and blocks it, sending the ball and the player spinning backward.
Who would have thought that the block of the year so far would happen in Euroleague?
