Videos: DeAndre Jordan Dunks All Over the Lakers

The new-look Clippers have arrived.


It may have just been a meaningless preseason game last night, but DeAndre Jordan took to the skies in terrifying fashion, serving notice to the Lakers that they should stop trying to foolishly jump with him and his wildly athletic Clipper teammates.

    Nice game from the Clips :D …now enjoy the lottery and leave the real ballin to the guys in purple and gold. It’s pre season and the internet is blowing up of this ish, there was even an article on espn called ‘script flipped’ are we not getting ahead of ourselves people?

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    That first one was just nasty!

  • http://nba.com GP23

    Billups had a great game. I didn’t think it would work out with two point guards in the back-court, but it worked wonderfully.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    People are definitely jumping the gun, but the Lakers didn’t look very good on either side of the court last night and it wasn’t because of rust, imo. They look kind of lost not running the triangle. It’s very early tho.

    Anyway back to the video, this kid Jordan is a beast, can’t believe more teams didn’t go after him this offseason.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    didn’t even show the underhand lob joint from CP3…..guys look like the Monstars….and Deandre Jordan on defense…..that boy is a problem impossible to score in the paint with dude lurking around. Really covers up for Blakes main liability- his softness on the defensive end….yep, I said it- tissue soft defender.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eyFiClAzq8 IAMORANGE4EVER

    It’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel FINE!

  • riggs

    if you think this preseason game didnt mean anything at all then youre just in f’ing denial.

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    But it still looks so weird that the Clippers have a good team..

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    Good one BRK, Monstars! Lol. But yea, CP3 DOMINATED that game in 24 minutes…Can’t wait to see what he does for a full game.

  • Mike From Spain

    I checked out the stats in NBA.com. The Lakers had 23 turnovers, how many of these were due to the change of system and roster in the Lakers squad, how many by good defense from the Clippers? I was very surprised that the Lakers scored more fast-break points than the Clippers. I’d have thought that if you are younger, more athletic and your opponent has 23 turnovers, you’d make more fast-break points than your opponent.

  • MUBWAR

    that dunk over the lakers towers was just nassssty. and ya dj hides blake weakness(defense) wonderfully

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq-G0bXgWXo IAMORANGE4EVER

    Does Mike Brown last longer than Rudy T? Just thinking out loud.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Rudy left with a health issue. And actually had a winning record

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq-G0bXgWXo IAMORANGE4EVER

    Yeah I heard he had kobeiskillingmeitis.

  • riggs

    HAHA

  • tomtom

    @Mike with the research, i like it.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    that I don’t doubt

  • Flight

    I dunno, I was more impressed by his blocks. Absolutely stuffed kobe and morris.

  • http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/h/hamilri01.html Allenp

    Chris Paul plays at a slower pace than people realize. He doesn’t like to push too much because it creates more turnovers and he’s all about limiting turnovers.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Lakers offensive sets looked awful. I’m still confused by the Mike Brown hiring…Having Billups and Paul in the back court together was very fun to watch. Both can score inside and outside, and both can creat for teammates. They’re going to be a very tough team to defend. They have alot of options. Billups, Paul, Butler, Griffin, DeAndre catching lobs, Mo, Bledsoe, and Foye off the bench, Cook hitting open jumpers…if they can find a good backup center lookout…

  • Randall

    @wayno bledsoe was in the cp trade

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    ^that was me not Randall

  • http://www.aol.com wagers

    @Randall, no he wasn’t lol.

  • robb

    The Lakers played terrible defense, and their offense looked…undefined, but hey, we’re talking about Mike Brown here. The good news is Kobe’s knee, he looked quicker, not very accurate defensively but he could move. I liked Morris, he came out with no fear, I liked that. But yeah sick dunk, the Clippers are definitely fun to watch.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    It was a preseason game. And the teams haven’t even been practicing for a full week. I would put zero stock in what happened last night.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    I still think they need a bigger 2 to start. Billups is not going to be able to match up with guys like Kobe, Joe Johnson and Wade all year.

  • http://www.aol.com wagers

    @nbk that’s the whole point! The majority of the Lakers roster is the same from last year, take out Lamar Odom and add in two new guys, oh well every starter that started was on the team last year, and excluding Josh and Troy they’ve played together for at least a full season or two. Even if they haven’t been practicing a full week these guys are professional athletes, not college players. They can pick up on new plays pretty quick… The Clippers started 3 guys that have never played together before, unlike the Lakers. I think you can put a lot of stock into this game..

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    So if the Lakers won by 20 and the Clippers looked terrible would we still be putting 0 stock into the game, or would Laker fans say “The Clippers aren’t ready for primetime”? Serious question.

  • angus

    look how hard kobe tryed to play, this was def a statement game. laker fans in denial…as usual

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    wagers, no picking up a completely different system is hard extremely difficult. Especially when you have formed certain habits to accommodate what you have been doing for the last half a decade. idk, maybe you don’t understand how NBA teams organize their offenses and focus on seemingly random, minute details that take habitual motion to make the offense flow. It has to be difficult for a guy like Andrew Bynum for example, to understand that his role has changed now from being a “part” of the triangle, to being the center of the hi-lo, he now has to change his entire mentality on offense, that’s not easy. And he’s had about a week to do it. There is no reason to put stock in the preseason, especially this preseason.

  • http://www.aol.com wagers

    @dfrance21 that’s expected because they’ve played together before, the unexpected happened. I don’t think anyone called a Clippers blowout. My point is that with new guys that have never played together before, go against the Lakers who are basically the same team minus LO, they have something to worry about, maybe its the new coach idk, but thats a problem. Especially like what @angus said, Kobe was trying HARD that game.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I don’t put any stock in any preseason game

  • T-Money

    nbk: i do. not in the result but in the process. a pre-season boxscore is meaningless but watching the games is always telling. i see that the lakers have no back up bigs and that only kobe can create shots from the perimeter. i see that between blake, artest, mcroberts and kapono, the bench will have trouble getting buckets. i see that kobe will be shooting A LOT this year and mike brown won’t get his way (i.e. feeding the bigs as the first option).

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    I see a dead team.

  • T-Money

    i also see that the clips have an incredibly talented starting 5 and a laughable bench, especially in the frontcourt. i see that mo williams serves no purpose on this team. i see that chauncey billups will win them some games and cost them some more by taking over and that the young guys will defer to him to a fault. i see that blake griffin risks being marginalized in this new offense unless VDN starts calling plays (yeah right…) because billus and cp3 rarely dump it down to let a big go to work. i see that deandre jordan will never have to create a shot for the rest of his career.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    I see you.

  • http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/h/hamilri01.html Allenp

    Chris Paul will dump it down. He used to give West his isos, all though West operated from the high post as much as the block.

  • isaac

    What’s funny is that it’s not Clippers fans who are creating such a fuss.. It’s the media and the bandwagon LA fans who detached from the Lakers teat (and the Bulls before that).

    Clippers need front court depth, but that’s really it. Mo Williams, Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes as your 3 off the bench isn’t bad at all. Mo was an All Star 2 years ago (undeserved, but he was still the 2nd best player on the 1st seeded Cavs team). Foye and Gomes are only 26-27 and they can definitely contribute. Bledsoe is coming back soon. They’re going to be a good team.

  • T-Money

    allenp: wasn’t it more chris handing back to d-west in nothing came out of the pick n pop? i’ll be honest – i really only watch the hornets in the playoffs and the occasional 10:30e game. / also, what’s up with blake wanting to face up and cross people up?!

  • http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/h/hamilri01.html Allenp

    Blake was doing that last year. I thought his actual “post” game was very much a work in progress last year. He got a lot of buckets just catching it close, throwing it up and getting the rebound if he missed.
    The Hornet would run straight isos for West on the block. It was a regular play for them. Paul would give it to West on the pick and pop, but West would also get isos and dump downs. Last year it was mostly in the high post, but the year they lost to the Spurs in the playoffs it was on the block as well. He would also dump it in to Okafor at times on the low block.
    He will give it up if that’s the right play, he loves his dribble but he’s not adverse to getting it to whoever is in scoring position.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    CP3 dumped it off to Blake plenty of times last night, the fact is that he has no post game to speak of. he shot a bunch of spinning off one foot fadeaways that missed. If he can’t drive past you then he doesn’t have much to offer. And I agree with T-Money with his points about Billups. He had a good game last night, but i thought he hoisted way too many ill-advised 3s which has become his MO since being names “Mr. big Shot.” he needs to reel that in and let CP3 run the show.

  • http://www.nbadraft.net showtime

    Preseason really normal doesn’t mean anything normally but this season may be kind of different, basically the two games is a preleude to a shortn season. So they may have a lil more merrit.But One thing people have to take in account is that Sterling is still the clippers owner & Vinny is their coach. But other then that the clippers are better allaround except for the Sg spot. Even the bench is, plus but in accountant the lakers have to learn this Spurs style offense,with limited BBIQ players except kobe&pau, Clipp might finish above the lakers

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    U needed yesterday’s game to tell you that T-money? I find that hard to believe.

  • el_larsen

    yesssssssss!
    after years of humiliation the clips will rise!
    this team will be an highlight machine
    but i m so sad my boy eric gordon left town!!

  • el_larsen

    and dj ‘s block on kobe was NASTY!

  • el_larsen

    nasty!

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Billups looked pretty good manning the two spot. Jordan is worth the money I think. He is Tyson Chandler. Blake didn’t need to do much, but looked like he was trying to show off some new stuff that looked like it hasn’t been polished enough to really be bringing into game time. Butler looked like a perfect glue guy. Randy Foye’s jumper was looking real nice. They aren’t deep. Especially at the forward center position. As for the Lakers, they definitely came out strong and fighting hard, but as Darius Morris and Ebanks and Walton started to get extended playing time the team took a pretty hard dive. Good things I can point out is that McRoberts looked really good. High energy, scrappy, and decent IQ. He is going to get some minutes this year that much is certain. Probably at both the center and pf spot. Bynum looked like he had been on the same drinking binge as Troy Murphy had been on(according to Jukai). He looks like he is completely confused about the Hi-Low set that Brown has them running. I think it would be best served having Pau playing the high post top of key spot. Pau can (and did) hit the 3 so he’s a threat out at the top of the key to shoot and pass instead of just being a threat to pass like Bynum is at that position. Most importantly though is KB looked younger. He moved much more easily and quickly than he did last year. Very obvious difference from where he was at last year. Wolrd Peace didn’t look so good, but I expect him to to start fitting into his role sooner rather than later. Kapono is easily the best 3 point shooter the Lakers have had since… Glen Rice. All in all what I took most from this game is it is just good to have NBA ball back. Clippers and Lakers should be jockeying for position out West all season. Should be a fun one.

  • Heals

    New Clip-show, but some old LAL D. Good stuff last night as they just got carved the uck up individually and collectively. Preseason or not me knows an a$$-whooping when I sees it…

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Actually, the clipps big lead came against LA’s starters.
    Also, I know now why Orl is reluctant to pull off a DHow for Bynum/Gasol. Even though Gasol is deadly down low, he gets pushed off the block too easily and spends the majority of the time taking contested fadeaways. Gasol should have manhandled BG on the block last night. Bynum will never be a guy that you can throw the ball down low and ask him to score on a consistent basis because of a lack of touch around the basket (he attempted 3-4 over the left shoulder hook shots last night and missed miserably on all of them).
    Even though it was a preseason game, the laker’s weaknesses were evident last night. Lack of speed/athleticism on the perimeter, lack of a bench, defense is going to suffer this season and Mike Brown (the man called nothing but PnR and Isos last night).

  • T-Money

    the elephant in the room with bynum is that he can’t jump over a phone book. dude has no lift at all! something else i’ve noticed: blake is kind of an -sshole lol. the way he flushed the jam on the break barely touching the rim and then looking at the ref like: “is that what you wanted?” lol

  • http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/h/hamilri01.html Allenp

    Bynum has great touch.
    His problem is conditioning.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    And bone structure

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    I should have said “he struggles to score away from the basket”. The majority of his points are around the basket (shot 73% at the rim last season and 41.5% from 3-9 feet)

  • http://juan.garcia@computershare.com Marcelus Wallace

    To many kids on here who don’t know that pre-season games are meant to get back in to the flow of things. Like getting your shot back around the rim or outside shooting. For someone here to say Bynum has no touch after one pre-season game is some one who know very little about basketball.

    Showtime Clippers lol

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    The Clippers seriously have the best starting line-up in the NBA. Miami is the only team that comes close… Chauncey looks like a GREAT fit at the 2 guard spot, and they’re stacked at every position. Seriously the coolest f*cking team in the league right now.

  • http://www.nba.com VanCityBBall

    keep hands and feet inside the ride and tuck yourself in ladies and gentlemen, the clippers bandwagon is gunna fall over eventually this season! (still i like Clip’s > Lake show tho)

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    They have the best passer in the league, the best dunker, a center who rivals that dunker, and a kick@ss wing duo in Billups and Butler. Man, if you’re a fan of basketball you’d have to be crazy NOT to be on the Clipshow bandwagon.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Clippers need their own stadium. Los Angeles Lakers fans don’t deserve this awesomeness.

  • ryan

    it would be funny if dj mbenga was there.lmao

  • eZ

    Ahhh that game was like a gulp of water after a walk in the dessert.
    As a general fan of the game and non-us resident I completely and unashamedly jump on that Clipper bandwagon. Good times… ^_^

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    Talking bout Mbenga, the Lakers can’t win ish without him!

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    I think Chicago has the best starting lineup in the league.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Paul > Rose, Billups ≥ Hamilton, Butler > Deng, Griffin > Boozer, Jordan = Noah (sort of).

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Billups and Hamilton are a wash as 2-guards. Deng is better than Butler, saying otherwise is pretty absurd man. And Noah is clearly a much better player than Jordan.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Noah is not much better than Jordan–not while Chris Paul is his point guard. You’re underrating the impact Chris Paul has on his teammates. Having a point guard like Chris Paul automatically means DeAndre Jordan, an athletic freak, will be better than normal. Derrick Rose can’t touch him that respect.
    And Luol Deng ain’t better than (a healthy) Caron Butler.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Also, Billups is a much better defender than Hamilton, and can shoot the 3-ball better as well (they both have equally great 3pt%, but Chauncey takes way more attempts, which means more 3′s made).

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Joakim Noah is far and away a better defender, and offensive player than DeAndre Jordan. Chris Paul doesn’t increase Jordan’s actual skill level. And Caron Butler is completely overrated if you think he is as good as Luol Deng. That’s absolutely crazy man.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Billups is a much better defender than Hamilton against SG’s? Since when? He has never, ever, in his career defended 2-guards better than Hamilton.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Chicago has a well rounded, not undersized, skilled at all 5 positions and decent on both ends of the court starting lineup. The Clippers have 2 undersized guards, starting. An inefficient, overrated defender at the 3 (if you actually look at his production, Butler is clearly over-paid, and overrated if you think he is as good let alone better than Luol Deng). Blake Griffin plays ZERO defense. None. He actually makes Boozer look like a good defender. And offensively he isn’t much better than Boozer at all. He’s flashier, but not really that much better. And Joakim Noah and Deandre Jordan shouldn’t even be compared. Chris Paul doesn’t change the FACT that Noah is a much much much much better offensive player (you can actually pass him the ball when he isn’t within arms reach of the hoop and he can make a play, being one of the best passing bigs in the league, which is the polar opposite of Jordan who should, and only does, touch the ball within arms reach of the rim). Defensive and on the boards there isn’t even worth talking about, if you watch both Noah and Jordan play with your eyes open, you can tell who the better player is.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    One player doesn’t make a whole starting lineup the best in the league. Saying Chris Paul makes DeAndre Jordan better than Joakim Noah is like saying having LeBron and Wade in the starting lineup in Miami makes Mario Chalmers a top 5 point guard. It’s impossibly ridiculous.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Chicago definitely has the most well rounded and balanced starting 5 in the league. Thier depth is up there too. Clippers have 0 front court depth, but thier starting 5 is very good offensively, but not great defensively. The Clippers starting 5 is probably the most exciting starting 5 in the league and they’re certainly going to improve this year, but lets not get carried away here.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Also, RIP can gaurd the 2 better than Billups. Billups isn’t going to be able to hang with Kobe, DWade, Ellis, and alot of the other 2′s in the league. RIP has gaurded those type of players his whole career.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    It’s not that Rip is a good defender. he’s average. But Billups has never even been average against 2′s at any point in his career.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com Enigmatic

    OMGZ OMGZ THIS CLIPPERS TEAM ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD*SS!!!!
    I JUST FEEL THE SUDDEN URGE TO HYPERBOLIZE!!!!!!!!!
    Teddy – c’mon son.
    Caron Butler is not better than Luol Deng. Not anymore.
    Sorry.
    DeAndre Jordan is not better than Joakim Noah. Not yet. Possibly not ever.
    Sorry.
    Yes, Chris Paul makes other players better. But he’s not going to suddenly turn DeAndre Jordan into an elite defender among 5′s and anything more than highlight reel on offense.
    I don’t care if Caron Butler is 100% healthy or not, Deng is better than dude SO MUCH MORE defensively and he does his thing offensively too.
    Chris Paul and Derrick Rose are even.
    Same position, different games. I could easily turn around and say Paul couldn’t lead a 62-win team while averaging 25 points per but I won’t. Even though I just did.
    I ain’t seen enough of Rip w/ the Bulls but Billups will eventually be a liability on defense when he has to somehow defend the 6’8″ shooting guards of the league.
    Yes, this Clippers team will be improved and hella fun to watch, but they’re not the best starting lineup in the L. C’mon.
    Oh, and one more thing -I don’t care if Tim Tebow is their general manager and God is their owner. Their coach is still Vinny Del Negro.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    Chris Paul wouldn’t have the same success as DRose with the Roster that DRose has and vice versa. Paul is a better true PG and a better descision maker, Rose is a better scorer and athelete. Pick your poison. They’re both great.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    You don’t think Chris Paul could average 25 ppg if he wanted to? He averaged 23 and 11 in 2008-2009, which is far more impressive than 25 and 8. Its a lot harder to up your assists by 4 a game than it is to up your scoring by 2 points. Paul and Rose are not even.
    But you’re right, I am short-changing the Bulls here. We’ll see what happens.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    3* a game.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    No Chris Paul could not average 25 PPG over the course of an entire season if he wanted to. No way, jose. — Chris Paul put up 23 and 11 before he had a bulky knee. It’s not the same guy. And he isn’t the whole starting lineup regardless.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com Enigmatic

    I said he couldn’t score 25 a game AND lead a 62 win team.
    He can most definitely play on a 60-win team, but I don’t think he’d be the leading scorer, there’d be another superstar on the team leading in points is what I meant.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I don’t think the Bulls would have won 62 games with Chris Paul, but I do think they could have gone just as far into the playoffs. That team would EASILY beat the Pacers and the Hawks. Chicago is lucky they didn’t face the Heat or the Celtics in the second round–that’s basically the difference right there.
    Paul took the Hornets to the second round once, beating the Mavericks but losing to the Spurs. I’m pretty sure the Dallas Mavericks that year > The Pacers this year.
    On top of that, it’s ridiculous that no other player on the Bulls averages over 20 ppg besides Derrick Rose. You don’t think Chris Paul could get 20 ppg out of Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng? The man helped Davis West gain an All-Star nod.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com Enigmatic

    Why is it ridiculous that only one player averaged more than 20 per?
    There were only four teams that I can think of that had more than one player average over 20 a game last season- Clippers, Heat, Knicks, Thunder.
    Boozer and Deng averaged 17 per each, are we really gonna criticize Rose further because they didn’t average 20 per each?
    They won 62 games!

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    The Bulls offense wasn’t really set up to have more than Rose averaging 20. Carlos Boozer was second on the team in Field Goal Attempts at 14 per game. So unless you think he should be shooting 60% from the field, nobody on that team other than Rose should have averaged over 20. And it’s by design.
