Back in 2003, Grayson Boucher left small-town Keizer, Ore., to join the And1 MixTape Tour traveling all over the world breaking ankles and taking names on the hardwood. He knew he’d have lots to prove if he was going to live up to his catchy moniker “The Professor”; an alias he earned because he schooled the opposition on the court. Today The Professor is the most well-known streetballer in the world and it virtually unguardable. It’s only right that he created SuperHumanDribbling, a series that teaches players how to have Professor-like ball handling skills. Now he’s agreed to break down flashy moves every week this summer for hoopers in a blog with USA Today.
What’s going on people!
It’s that time again and this week I’m gonna break down another one of my favorites, The Prism Effect.
Now, ideally, if someone’s guarding me they’re forcing me to my left or right.
If it’s right, I’ll make them think I’m gonna go to the basket by doing a couple of crossover moves and then with my left hand I’ll go behind my back and between their legs and then snatch it back with my left hand.
Everything’s the same but just use your opposite hand if they’re forcing you left.
Now if you just read that it sounds basic, but, as with all of my moves, it’s all based on concentration and timing.
But you can definitely nail this one with practice so read and study this blog then check out the video below for a reference point.
After that I want you to send in videos or questions using the hashtag: #ProfessorMovesUSAT
We may even pick your video to be featured in the next installment!
Work hard out there and I’ll see you next week to introduce another move.
Don’t forget to follow The Professor…
