While not much to look at in isolation, this crossover can be beautiful when pulled off cleanly. Former Georgia Tech guard Will Bynum has broken it out frequently over the years, often using it to create space while caught in traffic. Simple to pick up but hard to perfect, it's a valuable addition to anyone's repertoire.Read More
- Crouch down very low to the ground and dribble the ball rapidly behind your back.
- Having done for this for a few seconds, cup the ball between your hand and wrist and flick it (from behind) over both you and the defender.
- Pretend to continue dribbling until the defender straightens up, then run around them and retrieve the ball.
- Dribble the ball between your legs to your right hand.
- Cross the ball over to your left hand.
- With the ball on your left, straighten up as if to cross it back.
- Instead of dribbling the ball, simply drop it.
- Lean forward and catch the ball with your right hand.
- Pull it back to your right and continue from there.
If you want evidence of the efficacy of the move, you need look no further than Manu Ginobili, who found himself looking at thin air after Baron Davis turned him the wrong way with this one. Solid footwork and body control are required here, as well as good timing to ensure that the ball isn't exposed to the defender at any point.Read More
- Dribble through your legs from back to front, from your left hand to your right.
- Cuff the ball in your right hand and fake across your body in the motion of an underarm pass.
- Do not release the ball, but pull it back across your body to your right side.
- Without dribbling, swing it back to your left side.
- Move your left leg forward and dribble the ball behind it (and through your legs).
- Regain control of the ball with your right hand.
Start with your right hand. Fake a fast start towards the right. At this point your defender believes you are driving to the basket with your right hand.
Block your start spinning clockwise at 180 degrees while bouncing the ball in your back from your right hand to your left hand.
The basket should be in your back when you catch the ball in your left hand.
As soon as your ball is in your right hand, continue spinning the remaining 180 degrees while bringing the ball back to your right hand between your legs.
As soon as the ball is in your right hand, fake another fast start towards the right and bring the ball back to the left hand by bouncing it behind your back.
