LaPhonso Ellis awesome block basketball

In honor of the NBA Playoffs I was thinking about some of the great plays that don’t get a lot of air time. One play that comes to mind is a block that LaPhonso Ellis had in 1994. I only found 1 YouTube video — top 10 blocks of 1994 — that does it justice. LaPhonso earns spot Number 1.

(Update 8/1/2010: The original video I had was removed from YouTube, here is a better video.)

(Update: Thanks to commenter Morgan — The season is 93-94 and the Nuggets were playing the Timberwolves. The player he blocked was 6’7” Brian Davis.)
