Sergio Rodriguez finds Rudy Fernandez for the reverse alley-oop jam at Eurobasket (VIDEO)

Spain took care of Finland to pick up their first win in the second round of Eurobasket, and this play was the game’s signature highlight.

Sergio Rodriguez begins the play at the top of the arc, but seems to know the back cut from Rudy Fernandez is coming. As Fernandez darts toward the rim, Rodriguez finds him with the perfect pass, which Rudy has no trouble collecting and throwing down for the two-handed, reverse slam dunk.

    Rudy can dunk. I wish he would’ve stayed in the NBA.

    I don’t see the reverse part at all… looks like a normal dunk.

    Never really understood why Rudy never stuck in the NBA.

    Always seemed better than he got credit for. Maybe he just prefers Spain.

    Rudy played behind Brandon Roy while in Portland. He felt he was not being given an opportunity in the NBA as he was the man in Spain prior to coming to the NBA. Rudy did well for the Blazers his rookie season. His 2nd year, we saw some struggles and declined minutes. This is when he was very upset at the coach and the organization and wanted to be traded or go back to Spain. He got his wish and was traded to the Nuggets..not sure what happened there but I know he was traded again to the Mavs where he never played a minute and just went back home.

    I really liked Rudy when he was on my Blazers…but following him closely, he didnt seem very professional; just complained quite a bit to the lack of minutes but what do you expect? Brandon Roy was the star player…shoulda been professional and waited…work on your game and he would have been a major contributor after Roy went down.
