NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2011: Blake Griffin-John Wall Alley-Oop
NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2011: Event Info, Dunk Highlights, and More
During last night's Rookie-Sophomore game, a game that is usually interesting to watch, but contains not much of note, one of the most ridiculous alley-oops I have ever witnessed happened, and that contains very little hyperbole.
John Wall, running down the floor on a fast break saw Blake Griffin ahead of him, and at the three-point line he bounced the ball perfectly to a rising Griffin for a killer reverse.
The dunk contained so much skill from each player that it honestly left me speechless, rather than jumping up and down in my living room.
The pass from Wall was right on the money, the jump from Griffin was so perfectly timed that it seemed like they practiced it for hours.
This gives me two thoughts.
First, John Wall playing with Blake Griffin on the same team during a real game would be one of the most exciting passer-dunker combos the league has ever seen.
Second, John Wall will be passing the ball to JaVale McGee at tonight's dunk contest, which should make for one of the best alley-oops in the dunk contest since Steve Nash headbutted the ball to Amar'e Stoudemire.
I'm officially excited.
