Sep 6, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT

Gary Payton to Shawn Kemp may have been the greatest alley-oop combination ever.

There are combos who will make a run at them (Chris Paul and Blake Griffin) but Payton to Kemp is the gold standard. With Payton going into the Hall of Fame this weekend, NBA.com put together a video of the 10 best Payton to Kemp alley-oops.

Enjoy.

    Those 90s Sonics teams were a lot of fun

      by the way, whichever person over at the NBA whose job it is to put these highlight films together, I want your job. Watching highlight films all day to find this stuff… awesome.

    Sheer power on those dunks. Too bad kemp couldn’t keep his conditioning in control

      Large quantities of cocaine and alcohol will do that to your conditioning.

    Has there ever been a dunker with more swag?

    I love those dunks. Shawn Kemp was a beast back in the day. And yeah, he definitely did not take care of his body, which is quite a disappointment. But there’s always the Payton/Kemp duo on NBA Jam!

    BOOM-SHAKA-LAKA!!!!
