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 we’ll scour the globe to check in with the country’s most elite players and have them spill the tea and break down one of the many sure-fire juke moves they implement throughout the course of a game.
This week we caught up with NY RENS shooting guard Hamidou Diallo, a five-star prospect who’s being pursued by everyone from Duke to Kansas to Arizona, among many others.
THE MOVE: The Hesitation Crossover
THE EXECUTION: “First I’m gonna start on the wing and see how the defender is guarding me then I’ll hesitate with my first step and hit him with a quick crossover and go by him. That’s when I’ll try and finish strong at the rim.”
THE SELL: “If I need a bucket, that’s gonna get me a bucket.”
Watch how Hamidou Diallo gets it done.
