For Michael Jordan it was the tongue-wagging fade away jump shot, for Allen Iverson it was the ankle-breaking killer crossover and for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar it was the net-scorching sky hook; the recurring theme among all great players is great moves.

Every Monday during the hoops season we’ll scour the globe to check in with the country’s most elite players and have them dish on one of the many sure-fire juke moves they implement throughout the course of a game.

This week we caught up with Trinity Christian School (Fayetteville, N.C.) point guard Dennis Smith Jr., the top ranked floor general and No. 5 overall player in the ESPN 60.

THE MOVE: The Left-Handed “Hezi”

THE EXECUTION: “Y’all already know what mine is because it’s the one they always show on my highlight mixtapes. It’s for right-handed players and it’s the way I setup most of my dunks; it’s actually a carry! (Laughs) I never get called for it though; I cuff the ball for a quick second and push off with my right foot and it always freezes the defender. That’s when I go straight to the rack for the dunk.”

THE SELL: “Stopping it? Nah… Nah.”
