VIDEO: Kevin Durant reaches way back on the alley-oop

I'm not sure you can throw a bad lob pass to certain guys in the NBA, within reason of course. You can't toss it out to half court and expect them to use their Go Go Gadget arms to reel it in, but get it anywhere within the vicinity of the backboard or hoop and someone like Kevin Durant will throw it down.

During the Oklahoma City Thunder's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, there was a play in the second quarter in which Spencer Hawes turned the ball over.

Durant reached way back for the pass and brought the thunder on the dunk. This man is a lot of fun.
