Video: John Wall Dunks Over Greg Stiemsma

Jimmy goes ham on a helpless defender.

The Boston Celtics apparently have someone on their roster called Greg Stiemsma (he’s delightfully known as “The Steamroller” within the Celtics’ locker room). John Wall introduced this fella to the basketball-watching world last night.

    Stiemsma was actually a beast last night. Dude was swatting shots and hitting jumpers like nobody’s business.

    Technicals for staredowns???…..when did this start!!???

  • tomtom

    @kamla sad isn’t it?

  • tomtom

    Ray Allen missed the FT…ball don’t lie.

    Bang down, stare down, it’s that easy.

    Shawn Kemp sees nothing wrong with Wall’s reaction

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    I’m still LMAO at Javale..

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    Intresting fact is Stiemsma gets 8.25 blocks per 48 minutes lol


    10/10 for Javales soundeffect & then thought HE got T’s up for it. Who , Me ? LOL

  • robb

    It may sound crazy but Javale’s yelling deserved that t more than Wall’s staredown.

    Shawn Kemp would have gotten a 5 game suspension for the Lister Blister reaction if this deserved a tech.
    The SteamRoller was ballin last night though. If he can keep it up he’ll help the C’s a lot since we all know Jermaine O’Neal is due to miss a bunch of games.

  • Bt

    Perhaps work on your shooting instead of staredowns john

  • Lew alcindor

    he was also staring at the scoreboard at the end of the game.

  • RE

    I was at this game last night, dunk was crazy but let’s look and see what really mattered ….John Wall shot 4 for 13 w/ 8 dimes 7 TURNOVERS and Lost…He wasn’t even a factor for most of the game…Stiemsma shot 5 for 7 w/2 blocks and 7 boards!

    To call a technical on that is so idiotic…

    I hate when cats come onto a highlight video and start gloating about who won.


    Props to Shawn Kemp the creator of illness & funk no doubt. Dfrance & coolwip.

    That is the worst Tech I have seen since Tim Duncan got T’d up for shrugging his shoulders.

    It was a good dunk over a player who was late to transition. Would have been more impressive if he would have truly dunked on/over a player. I’m not a fan of unnecessary stare-downs, so don’t have a problem if they are called for technicals, but if they call them, they need to be called consistently.

    I hate it when there is a post titled ‘Jimmy goes ham on a helpless defender’, when this defender contests shots, blocks three of them and gets seven rebounds. I understand that Wall got him in this situation, but he has to learn that respect will come through wins, constant effort, efficency and not staring at a dude that doesn’t care.

  • http://leipzig-eagles.de/ Speedy

    and one more thing.
    Less steroids for mister McGee.

  • Heals

    It’s cool and I understand. The Stiemsma package of him blocking everyone on the Wizards at least once on the back-to-back was too long to put together. Wash better get Wall some real teammates and better coach/veteran soon or his progression may become stagnant. I wonder if Bos is going to embrace Greg? I mean a big white guy who excels in limited mins, I dunno Scal left big shoes to fill…

    Wall, Nick Young and McGee need to get the bulk of the minutes. they are the only ones on that team that have cohesion. Blatche is a chemistry killer. Shard is tenative. And Jordan Crawford is a world class chucker.

  • dma

    yo, can we get some video highlights of the lesser know players, like Stiesmsma who is blocking at a ridiculous rate?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    But Jordan Crawford is also their best perimeter defender. And he hustles. Two things you cannot say about Nick Young, who is also a world class chucker.

  • http://www.nba.com/analysis/rules_history.html Allenp

    Who is the better scorer?
    Young, and it’s not even close. And, Young passes the rock when he doesn’t have a good look. I watched Crawford jack bad shot after bad shot the other night. Open teammates begging for the ball.

  • Heals

    The classic one was the game in Wash where Jordan air balled a 3 (by 4-5 feet), which was met by silence from the announcers, he gets the ball back somehow and barely grazes the rim from equally as far to then get a “and Crawford hits the rim.” I dunno it was just the cadence and tone that made so unintentionally funny…

  • James Aka…

    I think McGee owes wall some fine money. The ref might have let it go if it wasn’t for the primal scream of reflected glory.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    That I am not arguing. I’m just saying Crawford does more than just try and score. I think that’s why Flip Saunders plays him so many minutes. I also think Flip should be canned.

  • Allenp

    Ever since Flip stopped coaching Garnett he has looked like a bum.

  • ClydeSays

    Stiemsma can play. But that was a b.s tech. And I a C’s fan. Wall had every right to be pissed. Wiz have some talent, but they’re a mess on offense. Unless they get out on the break they don’t have anyone directing them in the halfcourt. They might come in time for Wall, but right now they just have to run & gun. (Sorry Gil, I had to get a Bullets reference in there…)
