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 Chino Hills (Chino Hills, Calif.) point guard Lonzo Ball, a UCLA signee who was recently named to the McDonald’s All American Game. Ball runs the No. 1 team in the Super 25.
THE MOVE: The Rhythm Step Back
THE EXECUTION: “I basically just take however many rhythm dribbles I need and whenever the time is right I step back and I let it go. I can get it off any time.’
THE SELL: “Nope, no stopping that.”
Watch how Lonzo Ball gets it done.
