This is called the Tony Parker move because he is one of the players that has given this move notoriety, but a lot of different players use it. This move is perfect for smaller players who need to create some space to get their shot off.
The goal of this move is to sell that you are attacking with the in and out move, but then as soon as the defense shifts their weight to cut that move off, you snap the crossover back using the cross to also create more space from the defender so you can get right into your shot.
The more you can sell your move and then use the crossover to create space, the more time you will have on your shot. After watching this basketball training video, make sure to check out our basketball training groups app.
