The athleticism and length of the modern NBA player is impressive.
This makes today’s defensive schemes that much harder to break down. It also makes breakdowns on defense that much more interesting as athletic finishes lead to big, showy plays. Those plays include alley-oop dunks, which happen more often then you think in the league.
The NBA recently put together an entire supercut of alley-oops from the 2016-17 NBA season for your viewing pleasure.
Check out some of the best passes on highflying dunks from the last season by watching the video above.
