Default Best Pass in the history of the NBA?

http://youtube.com/watch?v=er0E5MP5r6E&feature=related

Jacked this from yesterday, i don't think to many saw this! I want to open it up for discussion, can anyone post a better pass by anyone in any year in the history of basketball that gets as good as what peja did?

Maybe i'm too excited about this, am I?

Yeah but Peja pulled off his pass in a regular season game, Jason Williams did his in the Rookie game, where nothing matters.

and williams could have easily just have done a normal pass and it would have ended up with the same result.

Peja HAD to do a no look, behind the back pass in stride for the layup. Greatest pass I've seen.

True, plus there was a defender between Jackson and Peja. Talkin about a 60+ foot around the back no look in traffic. Amazing indeed. But Williams' was unbelievably creative. Nobody else would have dared try to, or even think of bouncing if off their own elbow around the back on a fast freak in the paint. But Peja's was better. Can't believe it was a no-look... and it's not like he's an elite passer, either. That just adds to its greatness.

That Peja pass is incredible! Didn't know he had it in him. That's the best I can ever recall seeing. The only thing that would have made it better is if it was in a championship setting.

the one thing you guys have and must take into consideration is the DIIIIISTANCE this round thing had to travel and the longer the pass the harder it is to be accurate.

Peja's was the best. I wonder what was going through his head when he decided to do that because the chances of that working out perfect like that seems very very slim.

I always thought Chuck's behind-the-back no-look in traffic through 3 defenders in set play was one of the best ever .. .can't find a video though.
