I do not care if it sounds like an exaggeration… This was the greatest failed dunk attempt that I have seen. The heights to which Ja Morant got too, on top of the fact that the Defensive Player of the Year, Rudy Gobert, perfectly defending this. This was as great as an attempt gets. Well, Ja Morant has done this before, almost ending Kevin Love too!
? GOBERT rejected Ja Morant’s dunk attempt!!

Early in the second quarter, with Utah already up by 14, Morant found an opening to the basket with only Gobert standing in his way. The 21-year-old gathered himself, rose up to test the DPOY frontrunner … and got absolutely annihilated at the rim.
