Cedi Osman of the Cleveland Cavaliers hustled back for the chase-down block on Derrick White of the San Antonio Spurs. Watch the Turkish forward showcase his hops and excellent timing in the clip below. Notice how far behind his Cavs teammates were from White. Then, out of nowhere, Osman came flashing through to come up with the incredible defensive highlight albeit ending in a wedgie.

Does the chase-down block remind you of anyone? Like the greatest player to don the Wine and Gold?
Make no mistake, the 24-year-old is oceans away from the King, but it’s definitely straight out of the Cavs legend’s arsenal. And as for Osman, he could very well develop into one of the franchise’s memorable players.
