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

My left hand is considerably weaker than my right. And for some reason when I took time to figure it out I had much more success rolling it instead of laying it up.

So now I use rolls and scoops almost exclusively on my left hand.

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).

For a great finger roll to be used efficiently to score, it needs to be like Gervin's;

Goes like 2-3 feet in the air to go 'over' the defender's hands. Iceman used it to great effect.

It's hard to use without big hands too. I needed to practice the rhythm so it would probably go off my hands instead of roll off and slice off sideways.

I don't skyhook, though. Just normal jump hook. My basic post move.

I'd really like to master the Iceman's finger roll cos it looks cool as hell. But HOW do you practice it? it's pretty embarassing cos it airballs if you're flick of the wrist is weak( )
Man imagine fingerr rolling over the center instead of tear dropping it(which i think looks so awkward)
