Here’s that Giannis Antetokounmpo Bounced Pass Alley-Oop Dunk That Nearly Broke Twitter

The NBA All-Star game is known for over-the-top offensive highlights (and zero defense), and Sunday night’s game between Team Giannis and Team LeBron was no exception.

HOWEVER.

The 2019 iteration of this annual celebration of deep-threes and run-out dunks featured an alley-oop so outrageous, that it nearly broke Twitter as a result.

As one can see in the video above, the play started when the former University of Kansas player Joel Embiid stole a skip pass, hit a streaking Stephen Curry who then, impossibly, offered the bounce pass of all bounce passes that led Giannis Antetokounmpo to a high-rising dunk in which his head is roughly level with the ten-foot rim.

The high-rising “Greek Freak” shows off his world-class athleticism in this highlight but the real star of the show? Curry’s impossible bounced pass alley-0op pass. Might be the first in recorded history?

Shit’s crazy. And so thought many people on Twitter, which are presented below (along with many other angles of this play) for your reading and viewing pleasure:
