Luis Scola doesn’t block many shots and I’ve never seen him block a dunk and I’m pretty sure we will never see him pull off a 2 hand block the way Theo Ratliff used to do…BUT during Argentina’s game vs the Philippines, he tried a 2 hand block on Gabe Norwood’s dunk attempt and I can’t say i’m surprised by the results.
A lot of people will come to Scola’s defense (no pun intended) and say he wasn’t really “dunked on.” I agree, because this is what Scola getting dunked on looks like.
And this is what a poster dunk by Norwood on an Argentina player from the same game looks like.
