If you were the best athlete in the NBA and had a chance to throw an alley-oop dunk on a fast break, wouldn’t you throw it to yourself?
Miami Heat forward LeBron James sure thought so.
On a fast break against the Milwaukee Bucks last night James got caught in the air, initially looking to pass to teammate Mike Miller. When Bucks defenders anticipated LeBron’s pass, he went with Plan B.
Toss the ball off the backboard, catch the rebound and dunk it in one fluid motion.
On another note, all of this Plan A versus Plan B decision making came while suspended in the air.
