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.
