POTD 1/22/12: DeAndre Jordan Emasculates Ed Davis

I would go with the usual he treated him like a kid on the Nerf hoop thing, but what DeAndre Jordan did to Ed Davis yesterday afternoon is something that not even the coldest grown man does to a child.  Yeah, you take that little basketball and dunk it on the kid with the utmost authority–that’s acceptable–but you don’t rip it out of his hands after he’s grabbed a defensive rebound and smash it on his dome.  That’s where the line between fun and abuse is crossed, and while child abuse is frowned upon, seven-footer abuse is not.  Sorry, Ed…

Honorable mentions to Nick Young, Andray Blatche, and Linas Klieza, but goddamn, what DeAndre Jordan did to Ed Davis was downright disrespectful.  The type of thing where they can’t really be friends anymore.  They might be able to shake hands and share a laugh, but this dunk will bring about tension in all future interactions.
