ICYMI: Gerald Green Throws Alley-oop To Himself

The alley-oop toss off the backboard to oneself for the jam — We’ve seen it done in the Slam Dunk competition every year. But in an actual game? No way, right?

Phoenix Suns guard Gerald Green did just that — tossing himself an alley-oop off the backboard in a game against the Magic Friday night. It rarely happens in an actual regular season game; what makes this more impressive is that it was in traffic and he literally had no running start.

Here it is, in case you missed it. 

Technically, he traveled. But, love it or hate it, you know they never call traveling in the NBA. Plays like this are the primary reason.

Green is averaging more than 14 points per game this season and is the 2007 NBA Slam Dunk champion.
