    Is this a big deal?

    Yahoo has this dunk as a headline saying
    Lakers' ridiculous slam dunk

    Jordan Farmar and Trevor Ariza team up for a slam you'd usually see only in a dunk contest
    Video: Farmar to Ariza, Dooling to Sean Williams - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    This is one of the easiest dunks to do, much easier than your normal alley oop, we used to do it all the time in high school...

    Re: Is this a big deal?

    The only thing that makes this interesting is that the pass goes over the defender to the "ooper". Of course, it would be spectacular if I could do either the alley or the oop.

    It's an NBA game so they have to do something to make it sound even remotely exciting.

    Yeah, it's not to hard to leave it right on the rim, and if you are going fast and have a guy on you its easier to leave for someone then try and make the layup yourself.

    Re: Is this a big deal?

    I thought it was pretty weak too. I thought the end-result "dunk" was so-so. I have seen way crazier things happen. Stupid Yahoo...slow news/sports day. Who cares in the pre-season too...and most of the NBA Season as well. Honestly, I do watch the Post Season though-

    Re: Is this a big deal?

    I find it not that great either.... Something I notice with that yahoo.com news wire, is that they hype things up until you click on the link and actually read the story or see the video....


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...
