    First thing that popped into my head, too....

    Second thing was that this play would work even better if Derozan could catch and shoot. Instead, he runs 6 feet past the 3-pt line, slowly turns around and waits for the defender to get back into position before dribbling around aimlessly for a few seconds. Total waste of an awesome play by Val and Amir.

    the only thing stopping this from being an epic basketball achievement is that nobody scored off of it

    It actually kinda worked a bit though.

    This is Casey's finest coaching achievement.

    if that's legal then why not line up a wall on inbound plays too! could work to free up Gay for a buzzer beater down the road..i cant believe that's not an illegal screen though!

    But lets be honest, if there was a basketball version of the "knuckle puck" it'd be in JVs move-list.

    The general opinion around the blogosphere about this play seems to be that they revolutionized the game. Haha

    Everyone seems to love it, from Yahoo!s Ball Don't Lie to Larry Brown Sports. Its a hit! Haha

    I think David Stern should award the 1st overall pick for this incredible discovery

    Actually, I'm kind of pissed. The play itself is great, but it's the kind of surprise play you save for a really important moment in a really important game, e.g. game winning shot in the playoffs or something like that. Not 10 seconds into a meaningless game with another meaningless team at the end of yet another meaningless season.

    Could be just the beginning. For all we know, they just wanted to test to see if they'd get called for a foul. Now that they know its legit, I'd expect to see it brought out at more opportune times.

    Sure, but now the whole league knows it. I can just imagine what great coaches like Popovich and Spoelstra will do once they get a hold of it. Credit to Casey, no question - truly innovative. Pretty sure the league wil have to ban it in the offseason - no way David Stern wants his pretty little NBA looking like Aussie Rules. Maybe we could see it in this year's playoffs - that would be awesome & controversial.

    Man, this thread title made me dig out the ol' NES games. Maybe I'll watch the The Wizard later on too.

    On the play. I like it a lot. I don't think there's a way a ref can make a call on it as long as the guys stay hip to hip. It's not a loose ball foul or anything. THey are not disallowing the chasing defender from doing anything, they are just making a bigger screen. They technically have position, and there is no space to split the screen. If the defender charged through it and split it, it would be a foul on him.

    *Now, back to Battletoads & Double Dragon....

    Agreed. Not sure what would be considered illegal about it ... besides the moving around. Probably have to hold position a bit more solidly going forward if they want to keep using this.

    Battletoads!! Oh man ... and up come the memories.


    Its probably a good thing people have long since forgotten about THIS abomination of a movie...



    Its right there with Mario Bros as worst Game-to-Film movie ever made.
