DeAndre Jordan is what is affectionately known in the online basketball community as a "monkeyballer" -- jumps around on the court like a angry gorilla but has very little actual basketball skill to speak of. When athleticism (inevitably) falls away due to injury or age, Jordan will become almost useless on the court. He's been in the NBA for five years and still has zero post moves, little rebounding skill (despite being a legitimate 7 footer), and shoots BELOW .450 from the free throw line.
Dunking is virtually all Jordan can do. Without an elite point guard like Chris Paul to set him up, he wouldn't even find many opportunities to dunk.
Dunking is, honestly, the most overrated aspect of basketball. It used to be exciting because only a few players were athletic enough or tall enough to do it. Now, probably more than 70-80% of NBA players in regular rotations can dunk. It's not that exciting anymore. I can't understand, either, why it's considered "embarrassing" to get dunked on. Contesting a shot is not embarrassing, it's commendable. A lot of the time, the "best" dunks as declared by youtube and SportsCenter are really offensive fouls where overzealous offensive players use a defender as a launchpad to push themselves above the rim, which is just silly. That's not a legitimate play.
A lot of the time, a fancy no-look or behind the back pass to a wide open teammate camping behind the three point line or cutting to the paint off a pick-and-roll is more impressive than fast break dunk.
