Default Re: ever use the finger roll or sky hook ?

So I think I've finally gotten a hang of the sky hook... and boy is that move ridiculously unstoppable once you understand how it works and feel confident with yourself making it.

A lot of it depends on balance, if you can easily do a Dirk leg and other "acrobatic" shots you're one step closer to the real sky hook. Having a good grip on the ball matters, as does follow through. Another thing I've noticed is that it's easier in motion, after a fake or a dribble (doing it from a stand still position in the post requires a lot of skill).
