Lob City has been throwing alley-oops and putting on a show now for years, there have been more high-flying dunks that we can remember.
This is the best alley-oop they have ever done.
We can argue about the best dunk overall, but this tops the alley-oops for me, and the open-court throwdowns. This is just ridiculous.
I am rooting for the Clippers to draw Golden State or Houston in the first round of the playoffs — I want to be entertained with an up-and-down, fast-paced series. Which will feature more of this.
Kevin Garnett is as good a trash talker as there is in the NBA right now. He’s one of the games’ legendary talkers.
And he welcomed Bulls rookie
Bobby Portis to the NBA in his own special way during Saturday’s Chicago/Minnesota preseason game. From Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago.com.
Beautiful use of the
Honey Nut Cheerios reference.
Hoiberg was a teammate of KG’s back in Minnesota from 2003-2005. Hoiberg did nothing but praise Garnett after the game. He’s probably good with KG pushing Portis.
Watch out for Portis this season, he’s going to show he shouldn’t have fallen so far down the board.
Minnesota is going to be entertaining to watch this season. A healthy
Ricky Rubio (hopefully) dishing at the point, Karl-Anthony Towns is already a high-IQ passer, and bench players such as Shabazz Muhammad and Adreian Payne have shown some skills.
Andrew Wiggins. The reigning Rookie of the Year developed quickly last season — particularly his jump shot — and he should make a big leap this season. He’s going to dunk on people and end up in a lot of highlight packages while putting up a lot of points.
Enough to set the Minnesota Timberwolves single game scoring record, currently held at 52 by
Mo Williams? That’s the question for this PBT Extra with Jenna Corrado.
