WATCH: Pelicans connect on half-court alley-oop

New Orleans Pelicans rookie big man Jaxson Hayes is going to be a problem for opposing teams in his career.

Carmelo Anthony and the Portland Trail Blazers found that out first-hand Tuesday night. Check out the 6-foot-11 teenager throw down an alley-oop on a pass from Jrue Holiday from half court.

That’s just next-level ridiculous on the part of both Holiday and Hayes. What a perfect pass from the veteran guard, and an even better flush from Mr. Hayes.

Not to be outdone in any way, Hayes welcomed Melo back into the NBA with a stuff at the rim earlier in the game.

Talk about putting a dude that’s 16 years older than you on “Shaqtin’ a Fool.”

The disrespect.
