Video: Did Dalembert Block Iguodala’s Shot?

Wild night in Dallas, as Jason Terry hit the game-winning shot. Iguodala attempted to respond seconds later, but his teammate Samuel Dalembert had other ideas. Coach Eddie Jordan says the shot was off the mark anyway, but Iggy didn’t seem so sure. Check out the vid below; the madness starts at the 1:35 mark:

    it would’ve gone through the ring, I think

    WTF of the year.

    Dumb idea by Sammy. If you’re gonna make an attempt like that, you gotta throw it down. Otherwise just let it go and maybe Iggy would get the bounce or something like that.

  • riggs

    wow what a dummy, im sure he sucks at mathematical angles, because that show was going in nothing but net.

    making us canadians look bad sam

  • hot like fiyah

    need a better angle

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    NBA’s studio thought it was in. Although they didn’t have one angle that was conclusive. I thought it was in. Some local press don’t think it was in. This video’s blurred to heck but from others I still can’t decide, I’m a say it was going in, but that’s not the point, it is the fact that Sammy is so stupid anyway

    The real question here is: Is Sam Dalembert Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    This is fantastic for 2 reasons: 1) The shot was going in or at least had a good chance of going in 2) The game time expired in mid trajectory so even if it wasn’t a goaltend, it wouldn’t have counted.
    All in all, a well-executed play for Dalembert.

  • Earl

    It might have been just a tad short.

  • boogster

    Why the hell did he touch the ball after the buzzer? Is he that stupid or does he hate Iggy so much that he jeopardizes his shot?:-(

    paging Tim Donagy…

  • Yesse

    Damn, Dalembert.What the heck?That shot could have went in.Another angle would be good.

  • http://www.sonicbids.com doyouwantmore

    Dalembert might just be straight up dumb. LOL What a dough-head.

  • James

    lmao at igoudala scratchin his head like “did this dude really just try to dunk my shot when it was goin in and after the buzzer sounded?!”

  • http://www.yahoo.com logues

    boner play of the year

  • RV

    need another angle, looks like it was going to touch rim, who knows though if it was going to bounce in or up….the worst part is dalembert’s attempt was half-assed, completely off..

    That block was sick! In your face!

    In Canada that would’ve counted.

  • Sparker

    looked good

  • http://Vikturus Vikturus

    The coach should by 14x “I’m with stupid” t-shirts, for the whole team except Dalambert.

  • el_dirty_harry

    It was a dunk attempt by Dalembert.

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    Dalembert knows if they win they wont get iverson back.
    haha jk. he isnt that smart to figure that out, he is just an idiot.

  • erik

    wow, the shot actually looked like it had a chance.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Sam tried to pull a Lorenzo Charles and failed. Lol and that shot looked good to me, the ark seemed about right.

  • Prophecy_projectz

    Looks like he was trying to catch the alley oop as it sailed over the basket…..I think?

  • Rusty

    Iggy is clutch

  • http://slamonline.com/ niQ

    Dalembert is anti-clutch.

    NBA.. where amazing happens.

  • http://slamonline.com Jacob J

    What a dumb ass!

  • http://fashionsensei.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/jackie-moon.jpg Jackie Moon

    If it was going in, shouldn’t that be offensive basket interference anyway?

  • http://fashionsensei.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/jackie-moon.jpg Jackie Moon

    Assuming Iguodala’s shot was going to hit rim: If Dalembert had grabbed it and made the shot in time, wouldn’t it still have been offensive interference?

  • LA Huey

    1.4 on the clock, he catches the ball, turns, takes a bounce, and jacks up a three. What gives you the idea that time doesn’t expire in mid-trajectory? I hope Truth puts a knee to his junk the next time they play Boston.

  • ab_40

    it would have bounced of the right side of the rim either of the rim or in the basket. we’ll never know but he didn’t block it.

  • andrew

    Maybe Dalembert didnt know you couldn’t goaltend your teammates shot saw it was going to miss and thought ill get called for goaltending and the basket will count – he is canadian after all

  • JoelFitz

    I dont think anyone keeps stats on goaltended baskets, but I am sure Sammy leads the league. He does it at least once per game.

    But this takes it to a whole other level.

  • andrew

    I loved Iggy’s reaction. lets see Sammy do that to an Iverson buzzer beater and live to see tomorrow…….

  • andrew

    lets see Dalembert block an Iverson buzzer beater and see if all AI does is scratch his head LOL

  • Adrian Dolinay

    Get rid of Sammy… NOW!

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Ball looks like it would’ve hit the front end of the rim, bounced back towards the backboard and rattled in. Kinda like the shot that Nowitzki made last week.
    I think it would’ve gone in.
    Also, Dalembert has a history of making dumb@ss plays. He’s just stupid.

  • Shem

    No really like.. hes actually just dumb. Ive seen him throw the ball at the ref when he thought it was his team on team canada and he thinks that hes a star when it comes to international play. Why am i not surprised?

  • http://www.facebook.com/kevinwilson16 Kevin Wilson

    Who said Canadians don’t play defense?

  • BranGor

    John Waaaaaaaaaaallllll

  • http://www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    Get that weak potential game winner outta here!

  • J

    i can’t really judge because of the angle of the video,

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    I don’t see why he didn’t do that to the JETS shot first, you know, to see if it would work as a set play out of a time out…

  • riggs

    brook lopez to the 76ers!

  • Mike

    what was he thinking?

  • http://www.euroleagueadventures.com Nick Gibson

    Momma always said, stupid is as Samuel does.

  • str8 from samoa

    well we all make mistakes right dalembert?haha

  • http://IJustWantMyNameToLookBig.com Chukaz

    come on ppl lets focus on something more important. Sammy’s point was that Iggy needs more ark on his shot. Sammy was havin none of Iggy’s flat J. You either do it right or don’t do it at all. Sammy’s changing the culture in philly

  • Lazaruz

    i dont feel comfortable with iggy shooting the game winners, should have Brand on to finish out the game instead of Dally as well.

  • TC

    Wow, that ish looks f**king stupid…..
