that's what i usually do, but there will still be others there to attempt to block the shot so if i don't get off the second step properly i'm just begging to get my shot swatted.

i pulled off the eurostep once during a road game in high school against our bitter rivals. it amused me to hear them all yelling profanities calling for a travel when it was just a well-executed two-step.

Only time it worked for me was in a pickup game. Other times I just can't seem to pull it off.

The eurostep is called that because the euro (german) sport of team handball uses this tactic in that sport.

Since many euros have played team handball, they use it in basketball too.

It's no coincidence mostly euro players use this move.

Manu still has the best euro as of now.

I cringe of having to use it myself because on the playground I am likely to sprain my knees doing it

as somebody has mentioned before you mainly need to master the steps by doing it again and again and after a while it get's kind of automatic. I'm not the greatest b-ball player but the euro step has worked very well for me in the past because the defenders usually fall for the fake. The hard part is to do it instinctively. that's why I said it's easier to do it during a fast break because you have some time to prepare yourself for the move. To do it in traffic and decide whether to go left or right in a split of a second is where this move becomes very difficult and confusing. (of course that's true for most basketball moves )

You have no idea what you're talking about so just stop it. In handball there is no such thing as the two-step as you can use three steps in handball. Just stop talking out of your ass about things you have no clue about...
