Video: Andre Iguodala Throws Alley Oop To Himself

Whether it comes in the form of a ridiculous no look, over the shoulder pass to former teammate Marreese Speights, a behind the back dime to Thaddeus Young in the Garden or posterizations of the entire New Jersey Nets team, Andre Iguodala has been the catalyst for quite a few highlight reels during his eight year career with the Philadelphia 76ers.

As a longtime Sixers fan and Andre Iguodala fan, it's very rare to see Dre do something on the basketball court that surprises or impresses me. He has a lot of miles on his body and is starting to get up there in age. The ferocious slams the young Andre Iguodala would bust out on a nightly basis are becoming few and far between.

However; during Saturday's win over the Detroit Pistons, Iguodala pulled off the self alley oop, off the backboard, in traffic, on a one man fast break. The play earned the number one spot on NBA.com's top 10 plays of the night. Make the jump to see the video.

Wow. This came on Iguodala's 28th birthday, nonetheless, a night in which he recorded the eighth triple double of his career. Congrats and happy belated birthday, Andre!
