Two days after scoring a career-high 46 points and snatching 18 rebounds against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Chicago Bulls' Pau Gasol was sent back to earth in nasty fashion by Orlando Magic's Nikola Vucevic.
Late in the third of their match earlier today, Vucevic faked Gasol off with a nifty jab step, giving the Montenegrin center a clear path to the basket. Pau tried to get back on defense, courageously meeting the Magic's young star at the rim, only to find himself at the embarrassing end of another sick poster dunk.
Here's another angle of the monster slam:

Rubbing salt into a brutally bruised ego, the Magic also won the game, 121-114, with Vucevic steamrolling the Bulls' frontline with 33 points and 11 rebounds. Gasol, however, put up a fight, recording his own double-double of 28 points and 14 rebounds.
But don't feel too sorry for Amigo Pau. That's basketball. But, as fellow fans of his would probably agree with, maybe it's about time he steers clear whenever someone is about to attack the rim. We mean, he's been in too many posters...of other people!
