Default Players with million dollar move and ten cent finishes

You know, guys that'll cross you over and then miss the wide open jumper or make you bite with a ridiculous post move and then blow the layup.

The number one guy that comes to mind in this category is Boris Diaw. He'll pull out a bunch of nice shoulder fakes, drop steps, and counter moves and then miss the easy finger roll or hook shot.

Rafer Alston is another guy that'll pull of a nasty crossover or hesitation move off the dribble to create a lot of separation and then brick the jumper.

Who else fits this category?

After watching Gerald green this year with the Mavs, he is one of those guys. Man, he would do a move to free himself up that would look spectacular then brick the damn shot.

Kidd does that with layups too, btw. Kidd would make two guys miss to get to the rim then blow the layup. Never seen a grown man miss so many layups. It is like he has writer's block around the rim. Or he has one eye still looking to pass it off and one eye on the goal and hesistates to score stoill waiting for his teammate ands decides to lay it up and misses.

Mav fans will know what I mean on Kidd. He could still average 12-14 points if he could make a layup.

Hah, writer's block around the rim. . .

I completely agree though, I've seen Jason Kidd do exactly what you described an innumerable number of times.

Sasha Pavlovic. He can get to the rim pretty well. He even has a very nice spin move. But he's a horrible finisher. Just horrible.

White Chocolate better be on this list. He's got GOAT status at making a move then clanging iron in the worst way.

Sebastian Telfair is way high on this list. You have to watch him play. That is a big reason why he isn't as good as people thought. It's ridiculous. If he was finishing, he could be a weapon.

Jamal Crawford, like when he spun Wade around and missed the jumper.

I don't think Crawford belongs on this list. He's a pretty good finisher, and not a bad jump shooter, though he is streaky. He will miss some shots after a sick move sometimes, but that's bound to happen to him seeing as a sick move occurs pretty much every time he gets the ball.
