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 Franklin (Ohio) shooting guard Luke Kennard, a Duke signee and McDonald’s All American.
THE MOVE: The Shammgod Crossover
THE EXECUTION: “I usually only do it about one time a game, maybe two; I throw the ball in front of me with my right hand and reach out with my left hand and bring it back to the inside. Then I either do a pull-up or go to the basket. It gets the defense going to where you throw the ball and then when you snatch it back. That’s what gets them.”
THE SELL: “It works for me every single time.”
Here’s how Kennard gets it done.
