It's tough to not give the defender credit for at least trying to play defense against Greg Oden, but she left herself in a bad position by trying to jump and block the 7-foot NBA center's spike.

Oden—who has dealt with a number of injuries since turning pro in 2007, particularly to his knees—is still just 26 years old. Although he only suited up for 23 games with the Miami Heat in 2013-14, and 105 for his career, he looks to be in fine form here. 

Luckily for everyone involved at this Knoxville, Tennessee, charity event, this didn't turn into a Meet the Parents-like moment.
