Pau Gasol Makes a Ridiculous Behind-the-Head Pass

Pau Gasol has eyes everywhere.

While being double-teamed in the post by Chuck Hayes and Amir Johnson in the Los Angeles Lakers' 112-106 come-from-behind victory over the Toronto Raptors, Gasol dropped a chic behind-the-head pass to rookie Ryan Kelly.

It doesn't matter that this nifty move didn't result in a made basket or that Gasol finished the afternoon with zero dimes—this was impressive.

Right-handed, no-look passes from almost underneath the basket are a thing of beauty. Gasol's line of sight was obscured for most of this play, and he still put the ball exactly where it needed to be.

Other aging NBA big men should be so lucky as to have such a ubiquitous, I-can-peer-through-brick-walls-type of court vision.
