Masterful stuff, spf

npz is a god

omg @ this pass to Rambis

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewtGJOmru-Y&t=13m30s

he sees that Akeem loses Rambis under the rim

uses a gesture to create a diversion which draws Akeem away from the post

throws a line drive that could've been interpreted as a pass to Worthy but the nature of the throw signals to Worthy that it's meant for better things

Rambis throws down the easiest shot he'll ever get against Akeem

unreal

That's a personal favorite pass as well, Huey. The three angles on it helps me appreciate it even more. The normal angle, which is sweet by itself. The behind the basket shot lets us see the whole puzzle and all the pieces and we can almost see Magic analyzing the scene. I love the little "let's calm it down" gesture with the right hand, seconds before he ROCKETS the ball to Rambis (if you will...). And then the baseline angle closer in, we see him looking away as he delivers it, again showing that Magic's no-look passes really were that. And that leg kick! There's a sound effect that should go with this pass, something like, Ziiiip, or Whooosh or something.
