Slamadaday: Nicolas Batum on Kyle Korver

Poor Kyle. Not only did he get hammered on, but also received a nice elbow to the grill from Batum:

    Nets’ Terrance Williams was better.

  • bnets

    nasty shoulda been a foul for sure

  • bnets

    I agree T-Willl’s was better

  • LA Huey

    I can’t see the clip because work internet blocks youtube but I expect something epic if the Slamadaday is on someone of the Korver mold…

    Korver trailing, Batum slows down and uses his left arm as a shield, not exactly “dunked on”,as Korver is behind him, but still nice.

    that was pretty wack.

  • Oli

    stuckey on thabeet, anyone?

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Indeed, Stuckey was nasté good.

  • Yesse

    It’s alright, but not a slamadaday.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    welcome back Nic. thats how we do it! unfortunately the Jazz today is clearly the better team teal our guys get back…

  • Sparker

    cheap, dangerous foul and completely intentional. jerk move, ashton

  • http://www.slamonline.com barnabusb

    Stuckey for the win. The guy NEVER dunks and he hammered one on Thabeet.

  • Randy Brown

    Batooooomm!!! Sorry

  • lucas

    Man, getting tired of seeing my Jazz on the wrong end of these dunks. Oh well, we got the W. Oh and Sparker, what are you talking about? It’s not like he got under him or anything. NOthing cheap about that.

  • Earl

    Hardly a foul, softies!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Shadojoker

    Terrance Williams AND Rodney Stuckey had better dunks… but one man’s apples are another man’s potatoes!!

    was such the foul. The rose garden was going to riot.

  • TheFro

    No foul????

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    How was that not a foul, ref? If Sheed were still in Portland he would have thrown a fit.

  • http://www.slamonline.com MooButter

    Offensive foul.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Dunking on Korver is like crossing over the old guy in daisy dukes at the YMCA.
    You supposed to do that.

  • kudos

    Does anyone but me see that batum almost elbows Korver to the face? Korver dint initiate anything, batum slowed down to smack him… -

  • dankNuggs

    Not that tight of a dunk, that was the weakest shot blocking attempt iv ever seen

  • Beady Eye

    Eh… mediocre.

  • matt

    korver was 4 for 4 from 3 last night including the dagger at the end. he who laughs last or something like that

  • http://www.slamonline.com melvin ely

    @matt: he who laughs last thinks slowest?

  • http://www.slamonline.com melvin ely

    might’ve gotten that wrong though :) . also: batum, rudy, martell, travis. It’s been said before but damn this team is stacked. It’s like the ’00 blazers again.

  • T-Money

    I have no idea what Korver was trying to do. The dunk was whack though. I hate guys who slow down on the break to get their footwork right.

  • riggs

    so you like guys who take 5 steps?

  • http://IJustWantMyNameToLookBig.com Chukaz

    this was completely whack. n y the hell did korver try to block it? sure he blocked an off balance travelin lay up by bron but still.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Its always amusing to me how, when there’s OBVIOUS contact, the refs don’t call it. But hey, on touch fouls the whistle blows like crazy.

  • T-Money

    riggs: because obviously it’s either/or.

  • davidR

    korver with nice hustle. he keeps his body vertical and barely touches nic. barely any contact. if anything, batum initiated the contact by putting his left arm out to push off. watch his arm extend to push off korver’s chest right when he gets launched off balance

  • chintao

    Unless the subject has had a scrotal tuck first, crossing-over the old guy who wears “daisy dukes” can result in an ugly and visible testicular torsion.
