From beyond halfcourt, Ty Lawson found a skying Kenneth Faried for the two-handed throwdown.

Maybe its because I never played with any high flyers, but I could never throw a good alley oop.
No one cares bro.
it took me forever to figure out how to throw a “good” oop , i used to throw them way way way too high on the regular.
I’d throw them too short, or loft it too much. Dudes would jump and land and the ball would still be floating towards the rim. lol
Most people I know also throw it way too high or too far.
I guess playing with dudes like the Manimal makes it look easier.
You were throwing them way too late OR they were jumping way too early.
there was a year where we had a coach who demanded we play ‘the right way’: no passes that weren’t 2 hands, elbows out, FEET SET, no man-to-man (boeheim wannabe), and no oops!–even in practice!! Most miserable experience of my (probably all of our) organized basketball life. He’d even bench you for hanging on the rim. I would never have quit, but in retrospect, I wish I would have thrown a ball off his head and got kicked off the team…so much for growing up…
a plague on your gym, ‘mister’ haddock.
