There’s a common misconception with “Lob City,” and its that Blake Griffin is the only member of the crew. People forget that this dude named DeAndre Jordan…he’s got hops. If you don’t believe me, watch this video and tell me I am wrong.
Late in the third quarter, Jordan out-jumps Dwight Howard for a put-back dunk, and if you watch closely, you can see Jordan’s foot touches the net:
This was spectacular to watch live, as was the game in general. The Clippers look like they may be able to make some serious noise this season, especially if this guy that’s touching the net with his feet could use those hops on the defensive end to be the Clippers Tyson Chandler.
