- Dribble low and fast to draw the defence towards you.
- When they crouch into the defensive position, straighten up and throw the ball gently off their forehead.
- Catch the ball and continue dribbling
The Tornado is a freestyle move that can easily be used as an efficient offensive move. When using this move, the defender will often get confused and think your are only passing the ball behind his head.
The strength of this move is the spin you perform after passing the ball above the defender's head. The spin leaves the defender behind you and leave you open for a drive to the basket.
Move Type: Game
Tip: Make sure to work on this one on your own before you try it in the park. It may appear simple, but many players catch their head in their shirt as they attempt to pull it off.

- Dribble the ball low and fast in front of you while edging slowly towards your defender.
- As you draw within two feet or so, stop the ball dead on the floor in front of you.
- Bend down and kick it gently through your defender’s legs.
- Immediately following this, dive to the floor and slide through your defender’s legs after the ball.
- Regain control of the ball and continue as desired.
- 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.
Move Type: Game
Tip: Positioning of the ball is key. It must be placed close enough to the defender that they attempt to take it, but not so close that they can reach it before you do.
Notes: The original version of this move was invented by Rory "Disaster" Grace, who finished the trick by knocking the ball between the defender's legs with his fist. This is what gave rise to the name "The Punch".Read More
