I'm sure many of you have seen the clip of the high school basketball players who pulled off an amazing double alley-oop play. Well, they pulled it off a second time, proving it's not a fluke and can actually work as a designed play. Here's a link to both dunks (they really are worth a look, even if you've already seen them):

I could see it as a useful play the first guy going up in the air could serve as a diversion by signaling the ally and when the defenders rush him or clog his side of the basket for the ally they think hes going to make he then passes it to the cutting man for the double ally oop saves time from doing it on the floor since there both in the air at the same time or close to it

Doing a windmill or reverse jam is also pointless. It's all about style and dominance my man. You do that to another team and you send a message right there.

Yeah, but guys can make those dunks 99 times out of 100 if they are alone on the fast break. NBA players wouldn't do something this risky and impractical unless it was the only way to get the hoop.

Only if the guy originally going up for the oop didn't have a look at the basket would this be practical.........otherwise it wouldn't work. Watching that video you can see that the first guy to catch the oop had an easy lay-in himself.......in the NBA he'd be reamed by his coach if he didn't make the easy basket.

Like I said, maybe in the allstar game?

I agree. That one is sick. But it was more of an instinct play. The high school play appeared to be designed and I could see how it could work in an instance where you have one good player the d's trying to key on, you oop to him and he tosses over top to a wide open teammate for the dunk.


that said, I could see the bosh trio mentioned a few posts back doing this for sure.

Uh... It is pointless... Have you seen anyone blocked an ally oop yet? If it happened, it is very rare... The reason why players can pull off ally oops is because they are open... If you are open, why would you pass the ball? pretty stupid for me and that is the reason why NBA players have not done it...

Some good points. But I still think there's a difference between "pointless" and "not practical." The double alley-oop probably isn't the most practical play in the world, but there's surely a point in pulling it off if for nothing else than to just hype up the home crowd and intimidate your opponent...or to simply make the highlight reel. Athletes do that kind of stuff all the time.

Another group I can see going for this is West, Lebron and maybe Wallace.

Usually he sucks so bad he basically runs around the court with a penis in his mouth, but when Perk went down a few weeks ago he was our starting center. And believe it or not, he actually played really well....in Scal standards.

I've always hated Scal but the Scal love has definetly increased in the C's forum. The cheers use to be sarcastic but now they are real.

I just put Scal in there because he is the least athletic Celtic.:D

That was a pretty creative highlight play. I can see this play only happening in the NBA if the guy catching the 1st ally cant dunk it and dishes to a trailer.

My best bet would be anyone on the Lakers, Suns (Nash to Richardson to Amare), Magic (Nelson to Lewis to Dwight), Hornet (Paul to Wright to Chandler, you can invovle Posey if you want to make it be a classic make Paul finish it.)

Alot of NBA teams can do it but the showtime lakers probably will get it done first if Phil Jackson allows it.

This is one of the dumbest questions I've ever heard in the PSD Forums. Is this like a trick question?

How about NO TEAM!

The first guy on an alley oop would have to be open to be able to receive the pass and be able to pass to a third guy, so there would never be a need to alley oop it a second time. The guy passing up on the alley-oop and trying to throw it to a third player would immediately be sent to the D-league, never to be heard from again. If it were college, he'd be instantly made a cheerleader for the rest of his school days.

There's a reason it was only done in high school, as no professional (or college) team or player would do something so ridiculous. It's an amateur flashy play, that should only be done if you're on a team called the Globetrotters.

The first recipient of the alley oop will score, not pass! That's the point of the play. Why make it harder to score by passing a second time around the rim??

god damn it, the first alley oop was too far away from the basket, so the dude had to pass it to another guy. It would've been an alley-oop floater or something, and it could've missed.


Lamar-Trevor-Bynum is a probability (if Bynum ever recovers, and if Lamar stays).
Because Odom isn't the very best at throwing alley-oops, and because Trevor Ariza often times his jumps wrong, Lamar's lob to Trevor will be too far away to reach. I've seen Trevor do some nice touch passes in the air before, so I think that if Bynum's in the right spot, Ariza will be able toss the ball up in the air for him, and Bynum will slam it down.

Ariza's got some nice hang time, so he'll be able to stay up in the air, look around, and pass.

Well, it isn't a double alley oop, now is it? An alley oop is a pass near the rim where a second player catches and scores (usually by dunking). If the first one is like you are saying, too far from the basket, then it's a botched alley oop, and then a real alley oop, and technically not a double alley oop.

I reiterate my statement in that there is no reason in the NBA for a double alley-oop because the point is to score and if the first person can't, or has to pass, it just isn't a play any coach would tolerate.

I'm pretty sure the Nuggets have already done something pretty damn close to this, and I think it was this season. But even if not, no team is more fully stocked with high fliers and dunkers than Denver, so they get my vote.

This can be done but it would never be done on purpose. It's clear in the video the first recipient wasn't in dunking range so he just lobbed it to the cutter. Nice play.

I was thinking that too. Odom's put down some ridiculous alley-oops in his tenure. I tried searching for a clip on them, but didn't have much luck. I don't know, maybe it didn't actually happen. Anyone have anything on this?

take any three players on any team and they can do it, they are professionals, it will take them 2 tries at most.

the question isn't whether or not they can do it. I think it's obvious anyone in the NBA can do this. The question is, can they do it in a game against other NBA defenders. If so, why aren't we seeing this every night in a league that's currently struggling to draw a crowd?

It just increases the chances of being injured that's for sure.

Now that I'd have to agree with. Do you think that's the reason why this play isn't attempted more often though? Wouldn't owners want to see more of this type of thing since it would help sell tickets?

Coaches wouldn't risk their players just for the sake of getting an easy deuce. I think this is the main reason why NBA coaches doesn't draw up this play. NBA players are getting paid millions to play for the whole season. It would be better to watch your players play night in and night out rather than risk them getting injured and unable to contribute to the team.

I agree with you if you're referring to the hardcore fan wanting to see the stars play all season long. But we both know ticket sales are often dependent upon the casual fan and what they see as truly entertaining. The prospects of seeing unusual and acrobatic plays could definitely lure these types of people to the arena.

I like alley oops as much as the next person but double alley oops aren't very useful. To me I don't care who does it, me and my friends can do it in my backyard does that make it better then any other 2 points? No. Get the easy basket, if the second alley oop is the easy basket then fine but most of the time your wasting your time doing a double alley oop.

so are you basically saying you never care about, watch, nor enjoy anything that happens on the highlight reel? You don't leave your seat in the stadium when someone puts down a nasty dunk? All I'm saying is, the NBA is a form of entertainment first and foremost. True, a double alley-oop may not be the most sensible play in the world, but you can't deny its worth in entertainment value. And who wants sensible anyway when they're watching a basketball game? That's boring. Isn't that why all you people complain about baseball in the first place?

It's a pretty pointless play, in the NBA the guy would just score the bucket on the first alley oop.

What if he's not close enough to the basket (like the Clippers one before)

Memphis has a real possibility of pulling that move off. Mayo and Gay will be the dunkers, and either Lowry or Conley will pass them the ball.

To be fair Walton didn't really have a chance of scoring that.

I think the final play of this highlights mix from the Den-Min game might qualify:
