Brooklyn NetsDeron Williams got rejected in emphatic fashion during the waning seconds of the first half in a Saturday night game against the Washington Wizards

Unfortunately, "D-Will" wasn't blocked by John Wall, Trevor Ariza, Marcin Gortat or any other member of the Washington roster. It was the rim doing the swatting, which only adds to the embarrassing nature of the point guard's adventure in the air.

Quite frankly, he might have been better off just remaining on the ground while his teammates finished off the first half without him. Nothing good can come after a play like that.
