Move of the week: Jamal Crawford special


This week’s move is one that NBA player Jamal Crawford has made all too famous in his career. The primary move is a behind the back dribble and then switching quickly back to the other hand before gathering and finishing. We added some variations to show different ways you can initiate and execute the move.

Sometimes you can start with a between the legs dribble. Sometimes you can put the ball around your back and sometimes you can reject it. Crawford’s patented move can be used a lot of different ways because it encourages creativity in throwing off the defender with your body and the ball.
