J.R. Smith: Roc-A-Fella Records Era

One of the best oops of '04-05 season was this no-look Baron Davis lob to a teenage J.R. Smith against the Raptors:

The finish was exceptional. The Roc-A-Fella/Diamond Dallas Page celebration on the other hand was a little confusing, which is probably the same as saying it was quintessential Smith.

Now the closest Roc-A-Fella release to this game was Cam'ron's "Purple Haze". So as an accompaniment to this play and the subsequent gesture, we're just gonna let you enjoy this slice of mid-2000s brilliance.

(Thank you William Bell, Mavis Staples, Kanye West and Brian "All Day" Miller)

BONUS: Baron continued to throw ridiculous alley-oops even in the twilight of his playing career:
