This Off-The-Backboard Self-Alley-Oop Seems Almost Impossible

Jamaal Franklin took the ball, bounced it off the backboard, and slammed it home, like a one-man wrecking crew.

1. Wednesday night, San Diego State was playing Fresno State in a D-I college basketball state. Whatever else happened is unimportant. All that matters is what’s below.

Jamaal Franklin threw this incredible alley-oop to himself in the flow of play, and unlike most instances of this — which are generally unnecessary and/or counterproductive showboating, a la JaVale McGee — Franklin’s feat actually made sense.
