The best shot blockers have to be good with timing their jump; the best guard shot blockers have to maintain enough elevation to even get to the ball and swat it away.
This article is dedicated to those guards who don't give up when a 6'8 Forward is on a fast-break getting ready to throw it down, only to be met at the rim by a small hand to reject it.
He just might lead the league in shot-blocking for PGs this year.
I know its only preseason but he has played 3 games, and now averages 1 block per game; and if you have watched him in college than you will know that this guy has he block timing down and can easily deny a dunk on a fastbreak.
He may be the best defender in the next 5 years...he not only straps the opposing team's star player, but can steal and block too.
I would love to have him against Kobe anytime...even though Kobe might still knock down some shots.
By far one of the most athletic player I've ever seen play. Many people think it is just dunks but people don't know that he denies them on the opposite side of the court also.
Any Laker fan knows that Shannon Brown uses his athleticism in every little aspect of his game from his high elevation jumpshot to his high flying dunks.
The most underrated defender by far...people get so tied into his amazing offense that they tend to forget what he does on defense. Everyone remembers when he blocked some center that was 7'8 tall and just had to put his hand up to dunk, right?
Will probably go down as the best blocking SG in NBA history...and yes, he is that good.
With him and Lebron, I doubt there will be many fastbreak points allowed by the Miami Heat. I think that unlike Kobe, his blocks are done with a little more authority and power.
If you ever want to learn how to anticipate a block, just look at D-Wade's technique.
