Eric Gordon Dunks on Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace (VIDEO)

After dunking on his own twin brother earlier in the game last night, Brook Lopez was victimized by a hard driving Eric Gordon. The Brooklyn Nets, however, had the last laugh (a 108-98 victory.)

    Gerald Wallace has to be in the top 5 worst contracts in the L. 40 mill over 4 years! he is just a shell of his former self. averages of like 8 and 5 and his defense is not even close to what i used to be. So sad to see, he used to be one of my favourite players to watch

  • Anthony Dixon

    he stills plays good defense and rebounds.

    every once in a while it makes sense to point our who dunks on who, e.g. that starks on jordan on grant or shaq in that one as game on robinson but these headlines get pretty annoying. that game isnt all about taunting and why should players always get pointed out negatively when they do the right thing by challenging layups / dunks after the perimeter defense went wrong? thats a wrong message you media guys send to the kids

  • KoloradoKobe

    Nah, it’s not “taunting” – dunks are part of the game. And if you’re the kind of player that doesn’t “challenge layups/dunks” then you’re probably not going to go far in team ball. If getting dunked on stops you from playing D, then you’re soft and coddled. I don’t like this kind of view that we shouldn’t celebrate aggressive plays and instead should clap for the loser and all that. I applaud the guys that play D – and that means you’re sometimes gonna get dunked on. That’s life.

    One of my favourite SGs in the league. High-skilled, with good work ethic, fearless, and most importantly, humble.

    true that, ballers know that. imo we are just educating the kids the wrong way when we put the emphazis on who got dunked on. isnt it enough to celebrate the guy who dunks? i think these little nuances add up in the subcontext. could also be that i exaggerate a bit lol

  • KoloradoKobe

    Pouted like a diva when traded, wanted out of NO, didn’t want to play for a month even though he was cleared, pissed off his coach with his vague reasons for not wanting to play.

  • LakeShow

    lol

    I agree. The defense is there. Not as great as it once was, but he is focusing more on the defensive end then the other side, which is a good thing for the Net’s I think. It’s not like his offense was ever that potent. He just was super athletic and strong.

  • KoloradoKobe

    It’s all good. I get what you’re saying about the media pointing out who got dunked ON – especially when it’s a weak contest anyway, like a bad rotation and the defender isn’t even challenging and the media says he got dunked on. But instead of not talking about who got dunked on to spare kids’ feelings, I’d rather we just man ‘em up and let em know when you get crammed on, you should get mad and play harder.

  • danpowers

    exactly

  • chumpy

    I think the point here is, no one actually got dunked on. He went around Lopez and Wallace came late and he dunked when they were near him. He didn’t dunk on them. There wasn’t even any contact FFS. May as well say he dunked on everyone on the floor.

    Just typical Slam click whoring, looking for page views to drive their advertising revenue. It’s a scam but people fall for it. I did. They’ll also delete this comment like they have in the past.

  • KoloradoKobe

    Jeez, how entitled are you when you’re complaining about “click whoring”? I mean, it’s FREE to read, you didn’t have to pay for it, like a magazine on paper. Yeah, they have to subsidize it with advertising – it costs money to maintain a website, pay for servers, web design, etc and you’re complaining about clicks.
    .
    I got this simple philosophy about stuff given for free – if you don’t like it, don’t take it. But if you take it, don’t complain…because it didn’t cost you anything and you look like an ingrate.

  • chumpy

    Fuck off idiot. It’s the internet. Everything is free. I expect true headlines, not sensationlised.
