I feel like the shot clock would have run out by now ...

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad alley oop as celebrities lend their hands (and star power) to help the Detroit Pistons welcome the NBA season with #TheLongestOop. The campaign kicked off Oct. 9 with Reggie Jackson lofting a full-court pass toward the hoop. Since then, the video has featured:

Steven Yeun who plays Glenn on Walking Dead (who has been in the news the last couple of days), Eminem, Calvin Johnson, John Oliver, Kid Rock, Ken Jeong, Trick Trick, Jimmy Howard, Ersan Ilyasova, Jalen Rose, Stanley Johnson, Big Sean, the Starters (J.E. Skeets, Leigh and Trey), Cee Lo Green and, my personal favorite, JK Simmons.

The videos also feature some truly great Detroit landmarks. Currently, there has not been an Andre Drummond jam, but I can only assume that is coming. Here is the video series so far.
