Poster of the Day 4/8/11: DeAndre oops on Dirk

Nowitzki never saw it coming…


…then again, how could he have seen it coming?  It looks like he thought Mo Williams simply airballed an easy floater, and he was prepared to wait for it to drop into his hands… makes sense, right?  Little did he know, that apparent airballed floater was actually an AND1-Mixtape-Tour-style lob for DeAndre Jordan, who lept over Dirk’s back and absolutely crushed it with two hands.  I was shocked that Mo-Will passed up the layup in favor of the lob… I loved the decision, but I was shocked.  The alley-oop wasn’t exactly a sure thing in this case with Dirk standing in the way and DeAndre probably thinking Mo would shoot the ball.  Like I said, this looked like something from the AND1 Mixtape Tour… pass up the easy bucket to create a more spectacular, but also more risky one.  Hey, that’s the way it should be when you’re playing for nothing but ping pong balls.  Big ups to Mo Dub for having the nuts to go for it in a close game.
