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 Clinton Christian (Upper Marlboro, Md.) wing Timmel “Melo” Eggleston, widely regarded as one of the top players in the 2017 class.
THE MOVE: The Hesitation In-and-Out
THE EXECUTION: “First it’s a slowdown in-and-out dribble and a hesitation for a quick pause to freeze your defender which leads to a blow by!”
THE SELL: “That’s the move I use when I need that bucket.”
