Oklahoma City Thunder fail on alley-oop attempt (GIF)

While the Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the best teams in basketball, they’re still prone to mistakes that lesser teams make. At the end of the day, every player in the NBA is human and are capable of slipping up from here and there.

One such occurrence happened on Wednesday night against the Miami Heat. The Thunder, up by a sizable margin, decided to get fancy and throw down an alley-oop on the limping Heat. While the alley-oop was a valiant effort, the only people limping afterword were the Thunder.


It’s not often that the Thunder slip up, but when they do it’s sort of notable. They also learned that thou shall not showboat with an alley-oop lest thee be slain by thy own pride — or something fancy like that.
