After tonight's game, I'm going to have to rank Dirks abuse of K-Mart as one of the best i've seen in a while. Dirk gave it to K-Mart one on one,man to man in his hometown in front of his mama. No help D, just straight buckets on his head all night. One leg J's, turn arounds, pull ups, Dirk did itall tonight.

I knew it was bad, but when I saw the boxscore it looked even worse. Dirk 44 points 13 rebounds. K-Mart 2 points 2 rebounds 6 fouls in 33 minutes.

NT,

What's the worst you've seen a player get abused one on one?

Olajuwon vs Robinson after Robinson won MVP is the first one the comes to mind.

P.S This isnt about the series.

Shaq on those '03 Nets was pretty bad. I don't know who you want to put it on though. McCullough?

allan houston on kobe. dropped 50 on him.

lebron on kobe. he had smooth 41 on him. not to mention the game winner on him.

You try too hard.


The Dream abusing a young Shaq comes to mind. So much for that million dollar matchup in the Summer. "Injuries".

Yeah, Hakeem abusing Shaq was just unfair.

Latrell Sprewell on Sean Elliott in Game 5 99 Finals
KG on Chris Webber Game 7 Western Conference Semifinals 2004 (I'm not sure if anyone remembers this, but I think KG had 32 and 21, and at one point, he wasplaying PG and he was crossing the ishh outta CWebb)
AI putting up 52 on Chris Childs/Aaron Williams Game 5 2001 ECSemifinals
VC putting up 50 on Aaron McKie Game 3 2001 ECSemifinals

PROBABLY THE BEST EXAMPLE EVER IS Eric "Sleepy" Floyd dropping 29in the 4th qtr in the WCSemis Game 4 in 87 on probably the best defender of the 80's Michael Cooper & Byron Scott.






i think we should keep this to playoff games, the stage is just so much bigger. however, i don't think we will see as many abuses on defense nowadaysbecause the zone defenses.

Watch this game. Everything in this thread is one player abusing his defender... but Kobe abused the entire team with this one.

I think this is a stretch to call these "abuses" because the Lakers won both these series and only lost one game between the two. When you talk aboutabusing a defender, you're talking about the player just rubbing it in the guy's face with an edge. You can't really embarrass your defender if youlose the game, because the defender still did enough, technically... he still has the upper hand because he won the game even if you were draining it in hisface. AI and Tyronne Lue does qualify as abuse though, simply because AI stepped over him. Win or lose, AI shoveled some embarrassment on him.
