Summer League showtime: Between-the-legs alley-oop pass, big finish

Jul 16, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

LAS VEGAS — The basketball at Summer League gets a little sloppy at times… oh, who are we kidding, it can be an absolute train wreck. It’s hard to watch at points if you love the game.

But it’s also got some playground fun and athleticism.

The Trail Blazers were putting on that show Tuesday when on a breakaway Will Barton threw a between-the-legs alley-oop to Thomas Robinson for the huge finish. Now that is some summertime fun.

    As bad as it can be, I love the nba summer league for just how raw. It makes me appreciate the preciseness of the nba.

    Thomas Robinson entering his fourth season and still playing summer league,omg,and he didn’t exactly look too athletic on the dunk. I really thought this guy would be doing some damage by now but heck,he on his third team and his rookie contract about to run out,geez……..
