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 Word of God Christian Academy (Raleigh, N.C.) point guard Jalen Harris.
THE MOVE: The Shammgod Cross
THE EXECUTION: “First, I come full speed to the right and throw it out with my right hand then I snatch it back really hard with my left hand. If you bite on it, I’ll cross back over to the right; if not I’ll go right by you.”
THE SELL: “Nobody’s stopping it.”
Here’s how Harris does it.
