DeAndre Jordan: Watch the King of the Alley-Oop

Published Add your comment

Despite the fact there no longer called 'Lob City', you wouldn't be criticised for thinking that DeAndre Jordan gets 90% of his points from Alley-Oop dunks.

You can hardly blame the Clippers center though due to the fact he's so immensely talented at rim-rattling finishes off of Alley-Oop passes.

Despite being teamed up with Blake Griffin who is a human-highlight reel, DeAndre Jordan often fills up the game highlights with spectacular dunks of his own.

The 25-year old has vastly improved this season under the guidance of Doc Rivers but what has never been in question is the athleticism of the 6 ft 11 center, he can jump out of the gym.

Often when you watch the Los Angeles Clippers you forgot how brilliantly talented their team is because you're too busy marvelling at the dunks and Alley-Oops often performed by Jordan and Griffin.

Watch the video of some of the best finishes by the newly crowned 'King of the Alley-Oop' and let us know if you think there's anyone in NBA history that has done it better than Jordan.
