Trevor Booker’s crushing screen on Kemba Walker

I almost feel dirty posting this. It kinda feels like those ESPN celebrations of insane NFL hits that are thrilling to watch even as you realize that ligaments and organs are likely suffering some sort of permanent damage so that the fans in the Coliseum can see human bumper car destruction.

But still. You very rarely see two NBA players make contact in such a way that causes one to explode backward with this kind of ferocity. This was a screen Trevor Booker set on Kemba Walker Monday night. The Wizards lost the game. There was no glory in having set the night’s hardest screen. But it’s mesmerizing to watch. See a few live reactions below.
