Slip ‘n’ Slide [Video Demonstration]
First given a name in the videogame NBA Street, this trick has the potential to really get the crowd jumping.
The video below shows the trick being performed at a slower speed so as to demonstrate more clearly the movements involved. It is, in fact, easier to carry out when moving quickly.
- Dribble the ball between your legs to your right hand.
- Start to spin clockwise and, as you do, lower your backside to the ground, letting yourself down with your left arm.
- By the time you are turned completely from your defender, you should have your butt and the lower part of your back touching the floor.
- Using your momentum, roll over on the floor (with the ball still in your right) and onto your feet, helping yourself back up with your left arm if required.
