8. Kobe Bryant off a tipped pass
Even if you never knew that the pass was tipped, this would still be dope. But since the Sixers got a hand on it, and Kobe had to jump to the other side of the rim to get it, we have to show it even more love. The pass gets a D; C’mon Brian Shaw… you’re a point guard. You have to be able to get this off. But the finish is absolutely an A.
7. Isiah Thomas bounce pass lob
I really believe that if they were able to finish this lob cleanly, this would’ve been the greatest alley-oop ever. Number one. Isiah actually did pull this off cleanly with Dominique Wilkins during an All-Star Game. But let’s face it, doing it in an actual game makes it that much better. To pull this out in a game that matters takes some serious confidence. How incredible is that pass?
6. Odom & D-Miles
Was this play awesome for it’s spontaneous creativity? Or did the announcing team make it better than it really was?
5. Jason Kidd to Vince
Vince Carter is to dunking as Jason Kidd is to…alley-ooping? Just a thought…
