10 Ridiculous Alley Oop Plays

Published by at 3:21 am under NBA,Sports


The Alley Oop play.  It’s a great play.  It’s an entertaining play.  It’s a challenging play.  It’s one of those plays that can literally change the tempo of a game.  Notice I didn’t say momentum.

Did you know that momentum is 100% used the wrong way by sports announcers?  There’s no such thing as momentum in a basketball game.  Momentum is a scientific term used to describe the relationship between mass and velocity.  So I’m not sure how that term got into the mix.

Tempo of a game on the other hand is acceptable.  It’s a term describing speed and rhythm.  In any event, here are some awesome alley oops.

    LOL … Correct, correction below.
    Vince was SUPPOSSED to play at Rucker, but due to weather, game was relocated to Gaucho’s in the Bronx. Theres a big backstory on this dunk. Vince turns up late to the gym, some kid steps up and hits a long bucket in his face, Vince hits back, theres six or seven made shots each way, and then Vince drops THAT to end the contest (hence throwing the “it’s over” hand signal) …
