Better watch out, Chris Paul. Blake Griffin appears to be auditioning for your job.

You can just throw the ball anywhere and Jordan will dunk it. Jordan or Griffin must be leading the league in converted alley-oops this season.
I love watching no-look lobs, but playing the game.. ugh. When I was playing back in the day, young PGs would try to emulate what Payton and Kemp did. I’d be running down the court on a fastbreak and suddenly the ball would be sailing four feet over the hoop, absolutely nowhere near me, and into the stands. I’d stare at the PG who’d shrug and say “Alley-Opp, man. C’mon. You can get that, right?”
No doubt this is happening again in playgrounds all over the world once again.
without looking up the stats i can imagine that McGee is up there. i remember hearing the leading alley oop combos in the league and recently and Vazquez to Aminu were in top 5 i believe
Haha, totally agree, then on the other side of the coin, you get the players who can jump a little who’ll yell for an alley EVERY fast break, and then complain about the pass when they can’t jump high enough to reach it.
Wow, Vasquez to Aminu would have never occurred to me, good find man. If health issues never arose, Nash and Howard could have been streets ahead this season
i see CP3 is having clinics during practice lol
good use of streets ahead.
Must be so much fun to be able to play as one of those 2.
Andre Miller to Mcgee is no 1 I think.
2 guys who never start, surprising, I guess its just a testament to what a good passer Miller is and what a jumping freak McGee is.
Blake passing, CP3 flopping, they’re really learning from each other
But I thought all he does is dunk? (according to most people)
Exactly, It feels like half of Miller’s assists are lobs.
Blake,AnthonyDavis,Dirk,Lamar, Durant are the best ball handlers 6’10 and up in the league.
Nice joke but CP3 been flopping since he was in NO.
Couldn’t just let the joke shine huh?
Add Duncan on this list . He’s an underrated ballhander, there may be sometime when he brings the ball downcourt, driblling between his legs.
Good one forgive for forgetting about him, I felt like back in the day Shaq could handle too on a break. Webber was good at it, so was Ewing,Hakeem, or Garnett. Damn I can go all day with this David Robinson, Ralph Sampson, Deltief Shrempf(spell check) Young Pau Gasol.
