Kristaps Porzingis snatched a ball out of midair with 1 hand for the year’s most ridiculous block


Kristaps Porzingis just grabbed a shot out of the air with one hand.

I really don’t even think that can be classified as a block anymore. We need to invent a new stat for plays like this. How many grown adult men can run over and time this so perfectly that they don’t just block a shot, but grab it with a single hand?

That’s nuts. Kristaps is nuts. Blocking a shot like that is nuts.

Where have we seen this before? Let’s see ... ah yes, that’s right.

That said, Porzingis’ efforts came as New York lost to Brooklyn, which is the NBA’s worse team.
