Back in October, Boston Celtics All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo threw a one-handed alley-oop pass over his head, the most magical and inspired assist on the ongoing NBA lockout. Until now?
Rondo was back at it during this weekend's Boston Charity Classic, a charity exhibition game played at Harvard University, when he threw an alley-oop backwards off of his own forehead. Seriously. It almost defies explanation.
Leading a break in transition, Rondo put the ball above his head with both hands as he jumped, craning his neck backwards so that his forehead would serve as a launching pad. He then brought the ball down on his forehead as he descended, causing the ball to vault into the air. The ball's arc lined up perfectly for Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay, who caught the pass with his left hand and slammed it through in one motion, southpaw-style. As you can imagine, the crowd immediately went nuts.
