BAD BOYS: Salley to Dumars to Rodman

I’m obsessed with this pass from Joe Dumars, which isn’t just behind-the-back to avoid falling out of bounds, but also fools Michael Jordan, and has the perfect English to hit Dennis Rodman in stride for the easy dunk.

Dumars wasn’t just saving this basketball.  He saw Rodman flash out of the corner of his eye, and looped a perfect pass.  You can see him whip around to watch the play.

That, my friends, is a perfect pass.
