A day after practicing catching alley-oop dunks from his son, Lil Chris, new Houston Rocket Chris Paul caught a lob from James Harden during the JH-Town charity game at Rice University on Sunday. The best play from one of the most exciting charity games I’ve ever been to caused the local crowd of Rocket fanatics and women looking for a NBA baby daddy to erupt. And it’s a play we probably wont ever see during the upcoming CP3 & The Beard era.
What I do expect to see in the upcoming season that fans saw a lot of on Sunday was Paul and Harden battling (hopefully in a good way) for assists. Here’s the full highlights from the game, which includes a great angle on the Harden to CP3 lob (11:35 mark).
You can check out more pics and clips from the event after this countdown video of CP3 dunks, which includes a surprising 1-hand alley-oop dunk (2:05 mark) during the 2007 NBA Rookie Challenge and a 2-hand alley-oop (2:19 mark) in the 2009 All-Star game.
