“WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!? ISAIAH THOMAS GOT DEFENSE LIKE THAT?!”
You might have seen this hilarious video of a NBA Live 18 player going crazy after witnessing Isaiah Thomas get his head at the rim on a dunk rejection. Although I agree with him and the majority of the internet complaining about the unrealistic Gerald Green rim inspection by a player who has never dunked in a game, I’m going to have to disagree with people saying the Cavs new point guard would never be able to block a dunk.
Back in 2015, I witnessed first hand, the 5’9 Thomas rejecting a dunk attempt by 6’8 Trevor Ariza at the Drew League vs Seattle Pro-Am game. I also clearly remember watching Thomas reject a shot by the 6’11 Boogie Cousins and the 6’9 boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian last year.
