Just for a minute, forget about David Stern, and Derek Fisher, and the NBA lockout, and the fact that there’s probably not going to be a basketball season this year, and revel in the pure magic of this no look, behind the head, alley-oop pass, courtesy of Rajon Rondo.
Seriously, how nasty was that?
Rondo was participating in the State Farm All-Star Tour, along with the finisher of his lovely alley-oop pass, Kenneth Faried. And that pass, which you would probably never see in an NBA game, is one of the ways these exhibition matches trump their professional counterpart. Things like that happen when you play for the joy of the game, instead of fame and a paycheck.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
