    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.

  • Dfrance

    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.

  • Mariano

    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…
