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 football season we’ll scour the globe to check in with the country’s most elite players and have them spill the tea and break down on one of the many sure-fire juke moves they implement throughout the course of a game.
This week we caught up with Norman (Norman, Okla.) point guard Trae Young, a five-star recruit.
THE MOVE: The Steph Curry Behind-the-Back Step Back
THE EXECUTION: “My go-to move has to be the change of direction, with the Steph Curry behind-the-back to get a defender off balance. Then I finish it off with a step back to create some more space.”
THE SELL: “Always works!”
Here’s how Trae Young gets it done.
