Default Post a video of the moves that shocked you the first time you saw it!

I'll start, I remember watching this move by MJ on a shitty video I downloaded from Kazaa as a kid and I couldn't believe it, just too sick;

Jordan against Denver;

Looks as if MJ goes up in the air and comes down THEN releases the ball, which is clearly a violation.

I think he traveled......plus nearly all wing players can pull off that move today...heck I seen JR Smith do that move while taking off from further out.

McGrady's behind the back fadeaway.

I was there. I was also there to see him hold the ball on the perimeter for the final 10 seconds of 3OT before chucking up a terribly ill advised shot. Oh Bargs.

JR Smith 360 layup.

Really any JR Smith highlight reel because I keep thinking who is this guy and why is he not a franchise player.

It's not like he's just dunking, the dude is shows amazing dexterity and touch

This might sound silly once you watch the clip and see how simple it is, but there was a move in a HoopsTV.com commercial around '99 that really took me off guard and made me re-think a little about how the game could be played. Before streetball and all its crazy moves (some legal, many not) went mainstream, a lot of us were sheltered from the "outside the box" types of plays and celebrations. This one opened my eyes a little (as did the first And1 mixtape commercial): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Nclh5JX4g8#t=0m37s

In terms of the NBA, I don't know if I was flat-out shocked, but this is the first Vince Carter play that made me take notice - when I first realized there may be more to his dunking game than just being another Darvin Ham, Harold Miner, or J.R. Rider. The type of dunk, the situation with which he decided to execute it and the way he hung while he jammed wasn't something we were seeing a lot of at that time. In that split second I watched him takeoff, I was 100% sure it was going to be a layup. As it happened, it was definitely a, "Wait, what?" moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSz4Rzkx-DY
