The leg whip is a pretty basic basketball move that you can use in the post to help get your hook shot off over your defender. It would be considered one of the basketball fundamentals of posting up, and if mastered can really help the player to get a great hook shot off right in front of the basket.
This move is a must if you are going to be a dominant post player, because if done right it is very hard to guard. The defensive players job is to stay low and wide and keep his body in between you and the basket but if you are able to get your foot out and around his outside foot than you are going to be able to leg whip him/her and then be able to get to your hook shot. This video is going to teach you how to use the move so that you can use it the next time that you are down on the block posting up.
