Dwyane Wade and LeBron James Have Perfected the Double Alley-Oop

Josh MartinNBA Lead WriterDecember 6, 2012

THIS JUST IN: LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are a devastating combination on the fast break.

The NBA's premier Flying Death Machine was back at it again on Thursday night against the Carmelo Anthony-less New York Knicks. The dynamic duo for the Miami Heat turned a Ray Allen theft on one end into a double-trouble alley-oop on the other.


James and Wade have been known to leave observers slack-jawed at their exploits in transition from time to time. They pulled off a similar double-oop during the Heat's Christmas Day opener against the Dallas Mavericks in 2011-12.


Because, you know, they're giving people and whatnot. LeBron and D-Wade are just as comfortable with passing as they are with finishing in glorified fashion.

But one needn't roll back the clock to December of 2011 to catch a previous glimpse of the James-Wade Rainbow Connection. Those two played touch-and-go in transition during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, with LeBron starting it off with a steal and finishing with a thunderous jam.


Love or hate the Heat, you have to admit they're a fun team to watch.
