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 DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) guard Markelle Fultz, one of the top guards in the 2016 class.
THE MOVE: The Crossover, Step Opposite
THE EXECUTION: “I put the ball in my right hand to start off then I crossover to my left hand and step to the right then my defender is to the right and I’m wide open on the left. I can pull-up or go all the way to the rim.”
THE SELL: “I can beat anybody with this move because it’s the way my body is shaped and the way my body moves.”
