The Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t able to put away the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, losing their fifth straight game while on the road.
It was a disappointing end for the night but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a few highlights in their defeat.
In fact, one of their most promising and beloved stars had an excellent play that got all of the internet talking.

The moment was captured perfectly in various photos and videos.
No matter the angle, you cannot help but be awed by Mobley’s play.
Dunking on anyone is impressive but dunking on someone who is considered the best basketball player alive?
That’s something else entirely.
This vicious dunk was the best of Mobley’s season so far – and perhaps the best of his career.

It’s not every day that someone as big and powerful and talented as Antetokounmpo gets decimated like this.
Some players in the league might be intimidated about going toe-to-toe with the Greek Freak – but not Mobley.
This is why the young man was in the running for Rookie of the Year last year, he plays with the same sort of explosive power that Antetokounmpo himself didn’t have until a few years into his career.
Some people have even said that Mobley could be as good as Antetkounmpo in a few years.
It remains to be seen if that’s true but he’s certainly showing the right signs.
If there is one thing that NBA fans love, it’s players being dunked on.
And they really love it when those being dunked on are MVP All-Stars considered the best in the league.
