I have a list of all the players you've blocked in your career and how many times you blocked them. Your job is to guess who you've blocked the most. Hint: Think Central Division. Roy Hibbert: Ohh. Maybe somebody on Chicago? I was thinking maybe Luol when he was over there. TH: Nah. You've only blocked Luol Deng seven times. This guy you've blocked 18 times. Roy Hibbert: Hmm ... Wait, was it Carlos? Yeah, it's definitely Carlos. TH: Yup, Carlos Boozer. Why is he so easy to block? ESPN.com
