Video: J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert go double-alley-oop on Detroit

Mar 25, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York Reuters

The Knicks are feeling it right now. Undefeated since giving Mike D’Antoni the boot and riding the scapegoat momentum express, they won again Saturday over Detroit in a laugher. How much of a laugher was it? Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith pulled off something which is the kind of thing you can only shake your head and laugh at.

That’s Wade-LeBron-esque right there. An impressive performance to say the least.

The double-alley-oop is the new alley-oop. The bar has been raised. Eventually we will see the quadruple alley-oop and be calloused to it, especially when the defense scores immediately afterwards.

And in conclusion, Iman Shumpert.

    They lost to the Raptors the other night, hence they’re not undefeated. How do you guys get your jobs?

    How can you not know they lost to the Raptors? Like everyone else said, if you don’t know (which obviously, you don’t) at least do some research. How hard is it to look that up?

    I for one welcome our new double-alley-oop overlords.

    AND I’m going to name my first-born son “Shumpert”.

    AND I think that when 8 commenters log-in to tell Matt that he missed the Knicks’ loss to the Raptors, that at least the last 7 of them are a complete waste of DNA. You rock, Matt Moore, and I’m glad to see you’ve still got your job as the Dolphins qb, so far – although you’re going to have to fight off the amazing talents of David Garrard. Good luck on that one.
