VIDEO: DeAndre Jordan airballs an alley-oop

By Royce Young | NBA writer

When Lob City goes wrong.

Chris Paul tried to set up DeAndre Jordan for a big finish -- something we're all very used to seeing -- except Jordan was sort of cut off by Evan Turner. And he also took off way too far away from the rim.

The end result: An airballed dunk attempt.

Though I would suppose it's not entirely fair to call this an "airball" seeing as Jordan was just too far away to finish, technically speaking, he attempted a shot that didn't hit rim, which is officially what an airball is.

Almost, though. Even the great Ralph Lawler was fooled by it. Oh me oh my.
