After putting together a reel of Dante Cunningham's best blocks
, I got quite a bit of feedback asking to give Nicolas Batum the same treatment. Only difference is that Batum's highlight package is about three times as long, and features far more fastbreak-killing blocks.
What I'm struck by as I watch the footage of Batum using his crazy long limbs to send shots back from whence they came is the caliber of players who have been on the business end of Nico's ample wingspan. Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, Tim Duncan, Dwayne Wade, Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, Yao Ming, Joe Johnson, Ray Allen, Tayshaun Prince; all have been victims of the long arm of Batum. Fear him.
If you've got any specific highlight videos you'd like to see, throw those requests in the comments. Now that we've got access to the NBA's video server, it's on like ping-pong and Donkey Kong.
