The NBA season is young, but we've seen a couple ofinsane highlights so far. Now Memphis' Rudy Gay has thrown himself into the top plays of the year. Not only did the Grizzlies thump the Heat last night 104-86, but Gay made LeBron James look silly before taking off for a sweet monster dunk.
Gay put the ball behind his back, near the top of the key and for whatever reason that move confused James beyond belief. The lane completely opened up after that, and Rudy takes off from just inside the dotted line and just unleashes on the rim.
Pretty sick move, and with the win, Memphis is showing that they aren't scared of anyone in the league.
