Most incredible move nobody remembers 

Post#1 » by Extra Medium » Sat Sep 5, 2015 10:18 pm

Ron Harper made a play back in '86 or '87 that ranks with Jordan's reverse layup against the Nets. It's the best play I've ever seen that nobody remembers. He steals the ball from Barkley and then makes an against the grain (because he's right handed) blind, reverse layup over the outstretched arms of Julius Erving. One of the best moves ever. Somebody please post a video of it if you can find it.

Skip to 1:15. Never seen anybody else do that cool jump stop ever, NBA or in real life.

IMO one of the most underappreciated plays of all time.
Lebron jumps over a player and catches an alley oop! Like wtf? Never thought I'd see that in a game.

Look at the air time. Look at the gliding motion. Look at the power, the finese. The White Mamba's father.

Iverson crossing over jordan. It seems like only 90 kids remember this. This was epic. When he crossed jordan my whole house went crazy. I had people spill beer all over my carpet as people were jumping up and down from excitement and joy. Crazy times back in the day :D

I can recall back in the mid-90's a play where Popeye Jones was in a jumpball situation and he tipped the ball into the hoop from the jump ball to beat the buzzer, though I'm not sure if it was a game-winner or just end of quarter. Either way, I thought that was a really good play that I have never been able to find anywhere on YouTube.

Post it if you can find it.

Holy hell, it's like a reverse spin move. That's incredible.

My choice would be Isaiah Rider's freaky out of bounds shot.

Dude, everyone remembers that play. It's arguably Iverson's most iconic highlight.

Ronald Dupree (scrub on some of the good 2000s Pistons teams) used to throw down some crazy, walking-on-air dunks. Dude looked like NBA Jam out there.

EDIT: looks like the internet don't really remember him neither. This is all I could find from his golden age:

Don't feel like digging it up but when David Lee won a game for the Knicks off a lob with 0.1 seconds. That was one of the craziest plays ever that no one gives credit for, if one of the NBAs golden boys did it they'd never stop showing it.

Watched this live as it happened. I know most Raptors fans remember this, not 100% everyone else does though.

I like how this thread immediately turned into "Let me post a video unrelated to OP but that I thought was cool" :P
