DeAndre Jordan's vicious slam dunk over Brandon Knight last night got us thinking about some of the other great moments in recent league history when one guy absolutely posterizes another.
Jordan's teammate Blake Griffin definitely made the list. So did Vince Carter, of course. And we reached a little further back to unearth some Shawn Kemp, Scottie Pippen and Shaquille O'Neal classics. Here's a tip for all defenders out there, if you see these guys barreling down the lane toward you: run! Duck! Take cover! You're going to end up on some poster on some kid's wall for the next ten years if you're not careful!

The call it Lob City for a reason. With about four minutes left in the second quarter of last night's LA Clippers-Detroit Pistons game, Chris Paul dribbled to the wing, spotted DeAndre Jordan streaking down the lane and lobbed a perfect pass to Jordan as he skyed to the hoop. Brandon Knight made the mistake of getting in the way. More »

We are big fans of trick shot videos here at SIKIDS.com, whether it's Kyle Singler throwing a ball off a car or LeBron James's son draining one from a balcony. But this one might take the cake. While most two-year-olds are just trying to figure out potty training, this one is dropping buckets. On all kinds of hoops. With his brothers and sister in his face. Sure, his form might not be ideal, but that's probably because HE IS TWO YEARS OLD. Now that we're posting this, we're sure it's only a matter of time before we see a newborn baby swishing it up.
