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 Homestead (Fort Wayne, Ind.) center Caleb Swanigan, a five-star recruit and Michigan State commit who was named to the McDonald’s All American and Jordan Brand Classic games.
THE MOVE: The Jump Hook
THE EXECUTION: “I’ll take one or two dribbles and go up with my off hand; whichever one that is on the opposite side of my defender. When I need that bucket, that’s what I go with.”
THE SELL: “The only way to stop it is to foul.”
Here’s how Swanigan gets it done.
