Back down go for a little hook off the glass, if they have that covered I just pump fake, and turn around for a fadeaway, if they have that covered I pump that too and either just get the foul to take it out top... or go under them for a layup. I get something almost everytime.
My signature I suppose would be my in-and-out dribble on the run, akin to the third clip in this short Tim Hardaway video. There are endless variations (in-and-out drive, in-and-out to cross, in-and-out to cross then spin, etc) but mainly I use the in-and-out stutter to hard drive or in-and-out to cross.
I love that Hardaway clip against Avery Johnson though. I used to practice that exact maneuver a lot more than I probably ever should have, but I think that's where my in-and-out tendency derives from.
But I do that second one in the post. My 1 on 1 game is based on footwork and fakes. I just started doing that first one randomly about 4 months ago... It was before I saw Rondo do it but I remember Hakeem used to do that. That one Kobe move I had never really thought of before until I saw him do it... so I practiced it and found it quite effective. I like the Carmelo jab and fade out of triple threat too.

Really like playing in the post but i'm a lil short for it...When i do get it in there though i'll usually use a right hand jump hook, up n under or favour my left side and then sneak my right foot around the defender and spin into the lane for the left hook.
