NBA's Best Alley-Oop Combo?

At the bottom of the Friday Bullets over at Truehoop, I followed the link over to Dime Magazine's website who posed the ever-important question, which tandem of teammates is the NBA's best alley-oop combo? Here are the candidates the give:
  • Mike Bibby to Josh Smith

  • Rajon Rondo to Kevin Garnett

  • Ray Felton to Gerald Wallace

  • Mo Williams to LeBron James

  • Derek Fisher to Kobe Bryant

  • Jameer Nelson to Dwight Howard

  • Andre Miller to Andre Iguodala

  • Steve Nash to Amare Stoudemire

  • Sergio Rodriguez to Rudy Fernandez

  • Chris Paul to Tyson Chandler

  • Deron Williams to Ronnie Brewer

The way I see it Paul to Chandler is the most consistent alley-oop combo out there. They aren't the flashiest but Paul probably throws the best alley and Chandler is always looking for the oop. As far as highlight reels go, anything involving LeBron or Amare has got to be up there. Also, Sergio and Rudy usually team up for some nasty oops but lets be honest, Rudy just can't do things like the LeBrons, Kobes, and Amares. I think Kobe is the best in-game dunker in the NBA but he doesn't alley-oop all that much. Iguodala is athletically good enough to be one of the top guys, but I don't think he has the game-sense to consistently put himself in the right places on the court to get the oops. That's just my thoughts, what do you think?


  1. well more often then not it appears to be hedo to dwight rather than jameer

  2. nate robinson is one of the best dunkers in the nba

  3. We are talking about alley-oops, not dunking. And that statement is shenanigans, he just seems like a really good dunker because he is small. He is nothing special

  4. nate robinson is not in this conversation. i gotta agree with anonymous guy, Robinson is only relevant because he's tiny.
