"We bet you thought you were pret-tay cool, Stephen Curry(notes) and Dorell Wright(notes). 'Ooh, look at us, we can connect on a 48-foot alley-oop against the San Antonio Spurs!' Oh, you fancy, huh? Pffffffft. Step your pass back, gentlemen. Step ya game up." — Gilbert Arenas(notes) and JaVale McGee(notes), last night against the Portland Trail Blazers, probably
I am sincerely hoping that this starts a wave of alley-oop one-upsmanship that spreads across the league. In two weeks, I fully expect to see Boobie Gibson launching 85-foot bombs down the floor for a streaking Jamario Moon(notes). Let's make good things come to life, you guys.
PRO TIP FOR VIEWERS: Don't look for any more clips from this game. This was basically the only exciting thing that happened during the 83-79 Wiz victory/rockfight, which saw Washington and Portland shoot a combined 61-for-165 (37 percent) from the floor and 8-for-33 (24.2 percent) from 3-point range.
