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 up everybody!
Hope you all had a great 4th of July, but now it’s time to get back to work and today I’m gonna break down one of my most popular moves – The 2+2+2.
It’s basically a distracting move. First, I take the ball with my right hand and, while lifting up my left leg, dribble it under my left leg. My arm goes with it until it’s on the outside of my left leg and then I dribble it again and I leave it there.
It’s a quick 1-2 dribble: boom-boom!
Then I take it with my left hand and repeat the same move under my right leg. Then I usually do a crossover whether it’s in front of my body or behind-the-back.
People always reach on this one so it’s easy to read and anticipate with this move.
It’s a six dribble move, hence the name!
OK guys, read and study this blog then check out the video below for a reference point.

Go hard and I’ll see you next week to introduce another move.
