For non-NBA players (who don't get the advantage of 2 steps by rule), a key point is to pick the ball up off the dribble on that first mis-direction step..then the last Eurostep will be the lift-off step in the opposite direction for the shot.
Nice move and it really works. But unfortunately being a 33 yr. old pickup basktball player, I tried this move at full speed and as soon as I planted my right foot out far and hard, I blew my knee out and went down. Torn ACL and Meniscus! So, be careful planting that foot and I think the key is too slow down while your stepping. I didn't slow down and probably put that knee out too far. I won't be trying this again. Good move though.
Too much talk leading up to demonstration of the move, and then no actual demonstration of the move in its entirety. Should show the entire move, with a defender, if players are really expected to learn to use the move in a game situation.
well, if you are like me who learns things really quickly then this move is easy a quick step too the right, then too the left, then making a layup sounds real hard
usually this move is most effective when the defender is trying to take a charge or has his hands up. if he has his hands down then the windmill crossover is better. (search on youtube dwyane wade windmill crossover to find out what it is).
