You can drop your opponent with a crossover. You can drop them with a posterizing jam. This, however, probably isn't the best way to do it.

While trying to find Iman Shumpert on the perimeter, LeBron James sent an errant pass way low, missing his intended target and hitting Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell squarely in the groin.

As a reward for his eager attempt to intercept the pass, the rookie was downed in an instant, rolling onto his stomach while both teams played on.

Active, aggressive defense has never looked less appealing.
