Yeah, but he didn't have a running start this time, which I think makes it more impressive.

I get that. I saw both dunks and read your initial post of him having a running start on one and not in the other.
Geez, is my explanation not enough that I just posted that it was done shoe-less before by the same guy, which was mainly a reply to Namor anyways saying someone is going to steal it for the contest?
You want a damn cookie for pointing out the obvious differences? You mad the thunder was taken away from your post or something?
Just the way you worded your post, it sounded like you saw the 2 of them as basically the same. Like they both had the same degree of difficulty, even though one is much tougher than the other. Not mad, just nitpicking, I guess.
Oh my god this Blazers clippers game. Chris Paul shoots for a game tying layup, literally goes almost below the rim on the inside but bounces out, buzzer goes off, deandre gets rebound and stops cuz he thinks game is over but it was the shot clock buzzer not that game buzzer. He still had 0.7 seconds to get ball in and his hand and the ball is right next to rim

hack a deAndre worked too! lol what a game
wild game! don't take it out on Rivers. He had Griffin, Crawford and Barnes out for the game. I thought he did an incredible job of juggling a lineup minus three starters against a really good team. And oh my god, that finish. that paul shot was seriously below the rim ... how much spin did he put on that ball? and i think the biggest impact of the hack-a-jordan was that he was just blanked when it came to that last play. Of course, there were four players for the Clips with plus-37 minutes (including Turkoglu) and DJ had 45. He's still a monster defender and rebounder ... what is he? 5 straight games with more than 15 boards?
BEAST!!! dude's personality reminds me of a kobe bryant. i hope he learns from kobe though and learns to play with another superstar alongside him. its better for his career in the long run. and who wouldnt want to play with a guy like Durant?!?
there was a really interesting kobe profile on, i believe nba tv, and they asked him which young players had the same burn he did when he was a rookie and he said westbrook.
