Sometimes, if you want something done right, you just have to do it yourself. James Johnson of the Memphis Grizzlies demonstrated that against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night. 

 

Since no one was there to throw an alley-oop for him, Johnson took it upon himself. The forward threw it off the glass before slamming it down in traffic. Nice job being proactive, James. 

Props to KEB for the find.
