Maybe we only remember the made ones but it seems like every 360 layup attempted in a game surprisingly goes in. Vince has done it lots of time, Kobe too, Nate Robinson had a great one a few weeks ago. Last night the 76ers Nick Young tried it against the Warriors and the 360 did it’s job to avoid the main defender, Jarret Jack, but the problem is Andris Biedrins was under the basket and ready to swat it away.
This reminds me of the time when Nick’s teammate Jason Richardson tried what he thought was a wide open 360 dunk until LeBron James came from behind the block the dunk that still needed a few more degrees to go.
