That’s how you become a legend. Forget alley oops, everyone can do that. Forget popping 3’s, anyone can do that in their sleep. But pulling out legendary moves like the Dirk fadeaway, the Hakeem Dream Shake, or the the LeBron drive into the lane and flail, that’s how you separate yourself from the boys.
There’s the one move that rises above the rest. No, not the T-Mac self alley oop. That’s 2nd place. It’s the Jason Williams elbow pass. That’s the #1. That’s what you practice non stop.
And then to pull it off in a game, not an all star game, but a regular game, and not miss a beat, LEGEND status.
