Nicolas Batum off-the-backboard alley-oop to Meyers Leonard (VIDEO)

If the Miami Heat do something like this, we all just kind of expect it.

But when the Portland Trail Blazers are doing a bit of showtime it catches your attention — this is Nicolas Batum going off the backboard to Meyers Leonard for the dunk. Pretty impressive.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts was less than amused, Batum told Ben Golliver of

“He’s like, you’re lucky on this one,” Batum said of Stotts’ message to him after the toss. “[It] better [have] worked. Next time I kill you.”

    Last time I checked an alley-oop had to have the player leave the floor before catching the pass. So Lame…

    It was as high a percentage play as a layup attempt would have been with the defender where he was.

    I was entertained by this. Stop hating. Fun to see unselfishness, even from the original nut puncher.
