Vote: Who had the better block, Noel or Lopez?

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — It’s election day here in the United States, so let’s have a poll that allows everyone to vote. This all started last night when I was at the Nets/Thunder game, and Brooklyn’s Brook Lopez made a nice play blocking an alley-oop attempt from OKC’s Lance Thomas. You can watch that play here…

Moments later, via Twitter, those of us in the media seats saw another nice block, this one from Philly’s Nerlens Noel on a drive against James Harden. You can watch that play here…

(Also, just for what it’s worth, I had nothing to do with that play being labeled as the “Block Of The Night.”)

At some point later in the evening, I got into a discussion on Twitter with my NBA Digital co-workers Jared Greenberg and Brent Barry about which play was the better block. (I also roped The Brooklyn Game’s Devin Kharpertian into the mix.)

So, let’s get out the vote. I have tried to describe both plays as plainly as possible so as to avoid any accusations of voter fraud or polling place chicanery from Mr. Greenberg.

You’ve seen both plays, now please make your selection…
