J.R. Smith’s Reverse Alley-Oop Was So Insane, His Teammates Nearly Rushed the Court

The New York Knicks were clowned in the offseason for adding a bunch of aging vets, which made their roster the oldest in the league. Still on that roster though is 27-year-old J.R. Smith and during last night's blowout of San Antonio, Smith showed he's got plenty of youth left in his legs.

With just under six minutes left in the game, point guard Pablo Prigioni dribbles to the middle of the free throw line and Smith cuts to the basket. A pretty low pass was no problem for Smith, who managed to make the reverse dunk look rather easy. The speed with which he is able to get the ball up over his head and through the net is nothing short of amazing. As I've noted before, you know a guy has done something pretty incredible when his teammates on the bench are blown away. Not too many people are making fun of the Knicks roster at this point.
