I was wondering this, who is more influential in the ally oop, the person passing the ball, or the person receiving.

Equally important. Passer needs a receiver, receiver needs a passer. Both need to be on the same page.

But throwing it requires more "effort" I would say, considering the passer needs to throw an accurate pass while the reciever just needs to slam it down

depends on the oop I guess.

passing requires more skill.

it depends. if the pass was crap and the dunker still made it work then the dunker gets the credit. If the dunker gets a sweet pass out of the blue then its the passers credit. If the dunker executed a perfect give and go or hit a back door then its the dunkers credit. If its just a basic simple lob and dunk then its equal. This question is rather stupid to be honest.

both get credit. passer gets assist, scorer gets points.

Passer. If I throw the ball out of bounds can you dunk it?

It depends on what kind of opp. But for me, it has to be around 50-50. The passer needs to put it on a great place as the receiver needs to make moves and get to the rim. It's pretty much just like football, both side has to work to get there.

Put it this way: when the receiver is unable to finish the play, who's fault is that? Bad pass or horrible finish?

Could be either way, what if Receiver just got hung on the rim? But people already said it, you gotta be on the same page, both players equal credit.

it depends because sometimes a bad pass can turn into a nice alley-oop. But sometimes a nice pass can turn into a bad play because the dunker mistimed his jumped or couldn't handle the pass

throwing an alley oop to a good athlete is EASY... 90% of average people could do it

catching an alley oop and dunking it is HARD... 0.01% of average people could do it

I don't think that answers your question... but its the thought I had...

even in the NBA... every single player can throw the oop... how many can finish one in traffic?

There are 5 guards on every team that can make those chris paul lob passes... yet only maybe 5 centers that can finish those type of plays regularly.

85% passer, 15% dunker.

The first thing that comes to my mind is how dramatically the alley oop dropped off when Denver traded Andre Miller for Iverson. Pretty much went from oop-apalooza (featuring a wide range of recievers) to almost nonexistent overnight.

Guys can position themselves well near the basket all day, but if the pass isn't there, the play isn't there. It's all about the pass.

none, just as hard to get open as it is to deliver the pass.

That's backward 90% dunker 10% passer. If you have a blake griffin, shawn Kemp type guy, you can throw it anywhere. Near the rim, below the rim, High, low it doesn't matter they will go get it. Believe me. Every guard loves to play with a player that can go up a get it b/c they make them look real good.
