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 the country’s No. 1 senior point guard, Roselle Catholic’s (Roselle, N.J.) Isaiah Briscoe, a Kentucky signee.
THE MOVE: The Spin Step-Back
THE EXECUTION: “I keep the ball in my left hand and curl with the left then I spin and step back all in one. What gets them off balance is the spin; they think I’m gonna continue with the full spin. Gets ‘em every time.”
THE SELL: “No, way anyone is stopping it. They haven’t yet.”
Watch how Briscoe gets it done.
