We all know when somebody says “Lob City” they are talking about the LA Clippers with Chris Paul throwing oops to DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin but did you know that it’s actually the other team in LA with ageing Kobe Bryant and plastic man dunkers Andrew Bynum & Pau Gasol that lead the NBA in alley oops. Fox Sports West commentator Billy Macdonald said the lakers have 37 lob dunks and the clips have 31. How many of those 37 were worth mentioning is probably the same number of the 31 of the Clilppers not worth mentioning.
Let’s take a look at a few of the Laker lobs and you tell me how they compare to the oops we see from the Clippers
