Was about to post that Isiah Rider buzzer beater. I'm amazed how it's not more well known.

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


Remember that sick jumper from that amazing series from Penny but I agree with you one of the sickest jumpshot ever.

Damn, Penny had legit GOAT talent as said before.

Also if anyone can find it :

Eurobasket 2001, first time I was seeing Pau Gasol play when he was just 21, going against Mehmet Okur or Mirsad Turkcan in Turkey. Pau just took his defender one on one on the baseline, between the legs dribbles, nasty crossover and super speed first step then dunking on the whole turkish defense. I was litteraly in awe like my mind stopped. The type of play that make you knew from right there Pau Gasol would be a star.

Never saw this dunk again ever.

LeBron foul line dunk. He was a foot past the line but dunked it with a bent arm, showed that he could have definitely made a free throw dunk in a contest. Probably the longest ever jump for an in game dunk.

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

Immediately made me think of another Piston, Flip Murray, had some nasty dunks. Also didn't realize Dupree had such a crappy career, I remember him pretty well.

While we're at it, a crazy Melo crossover on Vince Carter during their Nuggets and Nets day. The funny thing about that play was that Vince was so ashamed of himself he faked to have something in the eye while walking back casually even though Melo didn't even release his jumpshot :lol:

I was at this game...as soon as you mentioned flip I knew this was the play. It was rather sick.

Extra Medium wrote: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.


I was watching this old Bulls/Knicks game last weekend and it starts out with a feature about Ron Harper and his speech problems and his Clippers days, and finding a role with the Bulls. Afterward DR J says this move you speak of is what made him think about retiring.

Thank you sir. That's the play in talking about. You can find it on YouTube under a Ron Harper mix if you look hard enough. One of the smoothest moves of all time.

What's particularly hilarious about this Fisher clip is how truly horrible of a shot attempt that is. Up 4, with the ball, 48 seconds left, he pushes it full court and throws up a layup that probably has a 10% chance of not getting blocked? Crazy Fisherness.

Hilarious? No. Fisher was the worst Laker I've ever seen at making layups. We were shocked that it went in. Judging by Kobe's expression, he was just as shocked.
