Hey all. I got such great feedback last time I posted an article over here, I figured I'd try again. I recently wrote a piece on the top 10 alley-oop tandems in the league and, surprise, KD and Russ make the list. I figured I'd only post the relevant snippet here, but you can read the entire article over at The Peach Basket.

To give you some context, I'll include the rest of the list without all of the words and moving pictures:

10. Kyle Lowery to DeMar DeRozan

9. Mike Conley to Rudy Gay

8. Ricky Rubio to Derrick Williams

7. Mo Williams to Gordon Hayward

6. Chris Paul to Blake Griffin

T-5. Russell Westbrook to Kevin Durant

I don’t care who you are, this is easily the most fun tandem in the league to watch. If the NBA was a 2-on-2 league, I’m putting all of the money on OKC to win the title every year (I assume the title in this league would be a gift certificate for pizza).

In terms of alley-oops, they’ve got it all. Talent, chemistry, youthful exuberance, etc. Add that to the fact that they play in front of one of the best home crowds in the NBA, and these dunks are super fun to witness.

T-5. Kevin Durant to Russell Westbrook

As some of you may know, I am a massive fan of Kevin Durant. He is hands-down my favorite player in the league. Tune into my shamelessly-plugged Twitter on any night, and you will probably find me fawning over him.

That being said, he is just too humble. Sure, he’ll celebrate a big, momentum-shifting dunk like any other player, but there’s just some aspect of arrogant hubris that’s missing. Enter Russell Westbrook, the chest-thumping, guttural-screaming, oozing machismo antithesis to all that is great about KD. If Durant acts like he’s been there before, then Russ is a newborn deer, catching his first glimpse of the world every time he dunks a basketball.

3. Steve Nash to Dwight Howard

2. Dwayne Wade to Lebron James

1. Gerald Green from anybody
