The Sucker [Video Demonstration]

The Sucker
When executed properly, few moves are as effective at embarrassing a defender as this.
  1. Dribble towards the basket, making sure that your defender stays close to you.
  1. When you reach the block, dribble the ball softly and catch it between your thigh and the back of your knee as you turn from the basket. Alternatively, catch the ball beneath your leg as is demonstrated in the video.
  1. Fake a shot with one hand. The defender should turn to look for the ball.
  1. Take the ball out from under your leg and continue as desired.
