Doc Rivers got some much-deserved flak a few months back for comparing DeAndre Jordan to Bill Russell, who won 11 NBA championships and is widely considered one of the greatest and most important players ever to lace up a pair of Chucks.

After watching this man-sized slam in the Los Angeles Clippers' 120-97 thrashing of the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night, we finally realize how wrong Rivers really was.

DeAndre Jordan isn't Bill Russell at all. He's Wilt Chamberlain.
