One good thing about Garbage Time is that it affords players the opportunity to try out things they wouldn’t dream of doing in close games. That time of freedom can lead to spectacular things, like this incredible alley-oop between Miami’s Bam Adebayo and Derrick Jones Jr.
As a strict constructionist, I refuse to accept this as a slam dunk. But it is one of the more spectacular things to take place on a basketball court this year. The ball not touching the rim at all makes it even more beautiful.
