NBA Twitter Clowns Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic’s Attempt to Recreate LeBron James-Dwyane Wade Alley-Oop
- Updated: December 13, 2019
In Thursday night’s game between the Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis seemingly attempted to recreate their own version of the legendary Heat play.

It didn’t take long for NBA Twitter to sink their teeth into the play, poking fun at the Mavs stars’ attempt.

there are only a few untouchable, uncapable of being recreated or done better NBA moments:
1) Air Jordan logo moment
2) Vince Carter over Frederic Weis
3) Wilt Chamberlain 100 photo
4) The LeBron/Wade dunk pose
to compare anything to them ever is basketball blasphemy https://t.co/YmlSrGWhTE

While it’s unlikely Doncic and Porzingis were actually trying to recreate the James-Wade moment, it’s hard to argue against the similarities.
The two young stars may have been the butt of a joke, but luckily their alley-oop helped lead to a comfortable 122-111 win versus the Pistons. Still, they might want to think twice about pulling a play similar to this one anytime soon.
As always, NBA Twitter remain undefeated.
