Grizzlies’ James Johnson Throws Alley-oop To Himself Off Backboard (Video)

James Johnson did some quick thinking during the Memphis Grizzlies’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

After a pump fake got a Clippers player in the air, it almost looked like Johnson was going to travel when he tried to lean into the defender to draw a foul.

Johnson kept his pivot foot down and got creative, tossing the ball against the backboard and surprising his opponents and teammates alike.

The result was certainly better than a travel, and something that even the high-flying Clippers have to respect. Check out Johnson’s impromptu slam in the video below.
