Larry Sanders is the NBA’s best shot-blocker. This is an inarguable fact, even if Serge Ibaka averaged more blocks per game and JaVale McGee averaged more blocks per 48 minutes last season.
Sanders is not quite the most dominant defensive player in the league — as someone attempted to convince the world using advanced statistics last year — but watching him play, there is no question. He’s the best shot-blocker in the game. Period.
Of course, that might be only because his toddler son isn’t yet old enough to bring the ruckus on his papa in the pros.
Sanders posted a video of himself getting dunked on, twice, Fisher-Price style in what looks like a skyscraper apartment most of us would kill for. His son, seemingly oblivious to the far-reaching implications that a person 1 1/2-feet tell can fell the mighty Sanders, thought it was hilarious.
