Pull up jumper, fadeaway jumper, and turnaround fadeaway over the right shoulder.

Left shoulder turnaround fadeaways don't feel as natural to me.

Over the left shoulder fades are more difficult because you're off balance a lot more. Most people will be short on those shots because it's hard to control your body and know how much power it takes while fading back. It's a sweet shot though when you get it down and looks a lot cooler then a right shoulder fade. I do it every now and then and I either make em or I am short.

Very true, over the left seems slow enough to give a good contest on top of being more off-balance.

I feel like it's pretty easy to create a good look with the right shoulder turnaround. All I do is dribble the ball, take my defender to the high post, and with my back facing them, I give them a small bump and do the right shoulder turnaround. As long as the bump I give them is solid, they never recover to give a good contest.

Start with the ball in your right hand, dribble through legs to left hand, just as you catch the ball with your left hand spin back to your right and finish.

i quite frequently use a variety of fake drives and crossovers, but nothing flashy. since i started playing a guard i use a no look pass, maybe even more often than i need to, and also a euro step when finishing- that one i picked up years ago, and still heavily rely on it.
this sums it up pretty well (but i'm nowhere close to the guy doing it).

Usually when I try a no look pass I **** it up... Or should I say a look away pass. I can look straight ahead and throw it to the side... but looking the opposite direction... tried that today and made a terrible pass lmao. At least we still kept possession

i know what you mean. you pretty much have predict the movement of at least 3 players a few steps ahead, and still make a good pass. as much as i f-ed it up i insist on doing it, cause it makes me read the player's movement more frequently.

My go-to moves when someone is playing very good defense on me are:

1) Quick in and out dribble into a pull-up jumper. I get up into the air in the blink of an eye, and my release point is behind my head. Very hard to block; I've only been blocked maybe twice in my entire life straight up on a pull-up.

2) Similar, but an in and out dribble into a between the legs crossover/fake drive into a pull-up J.

3) If the defender is pressing up on me, off the catch and face-up I'll execute a lead-foot cross-body slow rocker step with my left foot, then, while protecting the ball by swinging it low, I'll make a quick, hard jab step to the left and drive to the right when they inevitably bite. Sometimes, if a guy is really crowding/being physical with you, you may have to bring the ball high as you come across their body (so their arms/torso is literally underneath your elbows and the ball, so no chance for a strip).

4) Any sort of post up -- fadeaway, fake fadeaway into an up-an-under, backing down into a half-turn semi-hook/finger-roll off the glass etc.

Running off a screen and draining the jumper. Yeah, we set screens in my hood.

Omg man I can't stand playing at this rec gym sometimes there is a group of 6 lawyers that have been balling there for over a decade and they set screens, move without the ball, and drain three's like no one's business.

If all moy boys come we might beat them but if not 'new' guys get caught up in trying to help too much and we get shot right out the gym.

Conversely, the guys I play with act like a pick and v-cut is something foreign.

So frustrating.

Or when they score approach the inbounder like your their teammate and call for the ball. That works sometimes in a close game and the inbounder is mad about being scored on

I have 3 moves I really like to go to.

1: In triple threat, side step to the right, then come right back and Quick Draw a three ball. After I do that once or twice, I like to go to a 1 dribble pull up off of that.

2: Driving towards the middle from a wing, I like to either do a running hook shot or fake the hook and do a fade jump shot.

3: Pump fake, then 1 dribble stepback 3 ball.
