Default Favorite Move

What is your favorite move to do one on one. Describe it or if theres a vid someone of someone doing it post it on here. Doesnt have to be a streetball move it can be a move that you use in an organized game.

Mine would probibly have to be a quik inside out with the right hand and a low cross over to the left hand and blow right by the guy.

I'll face my man, size him up with my shoulder into his chest and palming the ball with my left. Sweep the ball down from my left to my right, behind the back head fake equals layup.
Kinda like that.

Catch & shoot... or just straight up jumpshoot with a nice followthrough.

For my go to move, I start out on the perimeter with the ball in my hands. I drive hard to the left and then suddenly pivot to the right to go for the jumper.

If it falls, the next possession I drive hard to the left again. Then I pretend to go to the pivot again, but do a double crossover instead.

The KG move. Where you catch the ball in the paint, reverse pivot, fake step towards the baseline, one dribble to the lane and finish with a dunk or hook shot.

Hit em with the spin-cycle up and under. Take it on the blocks, outside pivot around and square up like your going for the shot, pumpfake, and instead of stepping through towards the hoop re-pivot on the same foot back around to the hoop.

Its technically not a smart/efficient move when compared to the step through, but when done with speed it looks flashy and makes the defender look stupid.

When I'm posting up, I like to spin quick as if I'm going to shoot a fade away. If I can get my man in the air or moving hard toward me I try to step through and role for a layup, if my man don't bite, then I just shoot the fade away. It's that thing Kevin Mchale used to do.

Lately I've been using either a jab step and drive, or a crossover, to get into the top of the paint, followed by a short-to-medium range fadeaway inside the key. If there's a taller shotblocker who knows his stuff, I usually try not to get too close to the basket on these jumpers.

The area itself is a great position from which you can pass to cutting teammates, and it usually gets at least 1 defender to fall back into the paint leading to an open shot elsewhere. Plus, the shot itself is easy as hell from that close in.

It's a really easy move, but at 6'3" 14 years old and playing center, it's effective against the bigger (weight-wise) players I come across.
It's a move that I've seen many times in the NBA so I decided to add it to my game.

When dribbling the ball with with your right hand (or left doesn't really matter) bring the ball over to you left knee and start to step over with your right leg, but then do a changeup and bring the ball back over to your right side and swing your right leg back over to the right side and continue dribbling forward. It's an easy move, but it's pretty effective on the clusmier guys I play against.

Default Re: Favorite Move

Post up on the left block, high or low. Then I like to take a dribble into the paint with the right hand, stop, head fake, then spin back to my left and finish off the glass (with the left).

The move is pretty much unstoppable (assuming I make it hah) because I can finish with both my right and left hands around the hoop. I also have long legs, so I can cover a long distance with the spinning 'drop step'. Even if the guy doesn't fall for the fake (or I don't choose to shoot the right hook), I can usually get a nice push off with my shoulder, making it very difficult for them to block the left handed bank shot.
