POSTERIZED POLL Week of Jan. 15

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Like we always do at this time, let’s take a look at the best instances of people getting #POSTERIZED over the last week and, at the bottom of the post, you can place your vote for a winner. And don’t forget, if you see someone get posterized, tweet it with the hashtag #POSTERIZED so we don’t miss it!

Quick second to send a shoutout to LeBron James. Not only did LeBron make a strong POSTERIZED appearance this week (see the poll below), but he also paid something of a POSTERIZED tribute to legendary power forward Karl “The Mailman” Malone. Check out this breakaway dunk against the Dallas Mavericks…

LeBron didn’t exactly dunk on anyone, so for our purposes it doesn’t qualify for the poll. But LeBron did do a dunk that Karl Malone put on numerous posters throughout his career…

Anyway, there were a bunch of terrific POSTERIZING dunks this week. Special shoutout to last week’s winner, New York’s Kristaps Porzingis!

Special shoutout this week to Kristaps Porzingis, who may be a rookie but still had the presence of mind last night to duck out of the way of LeBron James to avoid getting #POSTERIZED. And even then he still ended up in the picture…

It’s the holiday season, so someone give a big present to last week’s winner, DeAndre Jordan!

Plenty of great entries this week. Let’s go to the posters, and don’t forget to vote for the winner…

Jahlil Okafor has huge hands

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Tonight in New York City is the NBA Draft Lottery, where ping pong balls determine the fate of several NBA franchises hoping to draw the first pick in the NBA Draft. One player in play for the first overall selection is Jahlil Okafor, who was a big part of Duke’s national championship team. While we know Okafor is a skilled basketball player, it helps that he’s got some amazing tools. Check out this picture from yesterday, where Okafor tried to see how many tennis balls he could fit in one hand. The answer? 13!

How does that translate to an actual basketball? Pretty well…
