Alley-oops can be some of the most fun plays in the NBA when they’re done correctly. See almost every single Miami Heat or Los Angeles Clippers alley-oop for vicious proof of this.
See the Phoenix Suns on Monday night if you want an example of what happens to two guys who mess up an alley-oop in the worst of ways. There’s few things more embarrassing in basketball, short of leaving your jersey on the bench, than messing up what looks to be a perfect alley-oops.
Both Goran Dragic and Miles Plumlee are to blame here, the trouble is in establishing who’s more to blame? Is it Dragic for throwing up a bad pass, or Plumlee for being a gigantic human being with gigantic arms that still miss an alley-oop?
The video evidence is in, now we just need a verdict from a jury of fans.
