Should LeBron start using this GOAT move more?

I don't understand how this move faded away...I mean...Back in the day, old school ballers taught the next gen...and then that one taught the next and so on....how does such an effective shot fade out? ESPECIALLY after kareem? Youd think one of the most famous centers of all time who used it during the NBA's popularity boom would of caused a resurgence

I'm 5'6 and that was my move. I was playing this young dude once and I kept hitting the hook on him even tho he was 6'3 with long arms. I told him to practice it and he laughed at it. I told him that it was the most unstoppable move in basketball history, but he didn't wanna listen. I guess it doesn't look fancy enough.

kids these days care more about flash.

For bigmen, Dwight has a pretty smooth running/sweeping hook.

If javale McGee would incorporate the sky hook to his game and get good at it like Kareem he would be the man

I don't get why people say that move looks ugly, I think you're the one whose making yourself ugly not the move itself..

I keep hoping that one day a maverick will come along and make this move his once more.

As I said before, I think the baby hook/jump hook is just as deadly and possibly more accurate.

Hooks in general if you do them right nobody can block them unless they are way bigger.

You hardly ever get fouled on hook shots, that takes value away from the move.

But I think you're overrestimating how much it has faded out, plenty of players still use hook and flip shots.

There is nothing smooth about Dwight's game.

Another Lebron hook shot. His form looks fine on his hook shot, he must have practiced quite a bit, which makes me wonder why he's attempted it like 10 times in his entire career.
