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 Virginia Episcopal School (Lynchburg, Va.) forward Sacha Killeya-Jones, a Kentucky signee.
THE MOVE: The Dirk Nowitzki Fader
THE EXECUTION: “I catch it on the right block, take two dribbles to the middle and then fade back to the corner. It’s that one-legged, Dirk Nowitzki-type fadeaway to the corner.”
THE SELL: “This one goes down about 99 percent of the time.”
Here’s how Killeya-Jones gets it done.
