When Kyrie Irving does a crossover dribble, it often happens in a flash. When he dribbles through his legs, behind his back, spins, or puts together a flurry of several dribble moves, it all happens so quick it’s a blur. Barry Sanders was the same way as a running back in football. He would dart in and out, hesitate, then explode and change directions so quick, he would leave defenders flatfooted and grasping for the air.
A highly skilled basketball player with a great shot will tell you that he knows whether or not the ball is going in the basket, the second the ball leaves his or her hand. This is because the player has shot enough good shots and bad shots to easily feel the difference between the two.
