Everybody loves a self alley-oop off the backboard dunk but it’s rare that they ever lead to posters too.   In Friday’s win over the Clippers, the Grizzlies’ James Johnson got Matt Barnes with one of these plays.

The mother of all off the backboard posters belongs to ex NBA high flyer Paul McPherson while he was playing overseas after his NBA career.  Go to the 16 second mark of this video to see it.
