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 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 Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.) wing josh Jackson, an ALL-USA first teamer.
THE MOVE: The Drive Pull-Back
THE EXECUTION: “It all depends on where I am on the floor, but I’d probably start with a hard drive to my right with the guy guarding me really hard then I stop on a dime and pull back while he keeps going forward. After that I just pull up for the jumper.”
THE SELL: “No, you can’t stop that.”
Watch how Josh Jackson gets it done.
