Default Best hook shot today

Who executes the best hook shot in todays game?
Technically I think this is the most unstoppable post move out there. Not alot of bigs practice it and use it efficiently and consistantly. Someone should duplicate the "skyhook".

Duncan is probably the most obvious and popular answer but someone is probably better at it.

Someone will mention Bosh's skyhook last night, in this thread.

Do you mean jump hook or the sky hook like Magic Johnson and Kareem used to pull of? I think Yao and Duncan do more of a jump hook.

Ok. Then in that case I would have to go with Duncan. He has that jump hook down.

Big Z has a pretty nice touch with his little scoop shot, which is basically a variation of the original skyhook.

Too bad he's on a team that isn't built to suit him.

Krstic has a good jump hook. though he usually does not post up, bang and then fire a hook, usually it is off of pivot moves in the post when he shakes his defender then goes up for the hook.

Shaqs got a decent jump hook especially when he can use the glass on the right block.
