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

I actually use a lot of finger rolls and occasionally I'll do a hook shot (I'm 5'11, but I'm pretty wide and played center when I was younger and still seemed like I'd eventually be really tall). The hook shot works pretty well, and I actually think that finger rolls are the easiest was to score if you're faster than someone guarding the paint. They're definitely easier than floaters, especially going across the basket.

I quite often pump fake a corner three then will drive baseline to the rim then side step away from the rim as im skyhooking. good because it creates alot of height. sudden change in direction (which ****s up the defender) and sometimes i can use my non shooting hand to create a bit more space from the defender

i agree with this. spinning into a floater is my favorite move when I'm driving.

and yeah, finger rolls are used everywhere on the streets. i almost always finger roll my layups, especially on a reverse.

Not very successfully. Those shots take a ton of skill and touch. I have a decent scoop floater tho from ****ing around with it so much during shootarounds.

And when I think of finger roll I think of Gervin's not just your average lay-up. The Gervin style finger roll is very difficult.

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

If you are like 6'6 or taller maybe a finger roll can be a useful shot... But it's all about the floater these days. Other than a more or less uncontested layup, I don't see a point of finger rolling. A sky hook can be a useful shot to learn on the other hand... Many situations where a sky or sweeping hook could be a useful way to get up a shot that is hard to contest.
