I would think that a Grandpa would more likely be in a cardigan than a jumper!

I want to know what Darko's specialist move is?

Blake Griffin: Reverse pivot

Blake Griffin: Reverse pivot faceup, hard dribble (left or right) and then spin move in the opposite direction

Derrick Rose: Hesitation crossover dribble (best in the NBA)

Al Jefferson: Pumpfake (best in the NBA)

LeBron: Drive hard to the left for one or two dribbles, stop on dime and shoot pull up jumper

Scola: Up and under

Ginobli: Fake drive forward, then stepback jumper (still can't figure out what he's doing with his feet)

Westbrook: Dribble pull up jumper in the mid-range

Aldridge: While his back is to the basket, he bangs you once or twice, then fakes like he's going to pull back but then goes hard forward towards the middle of the paint. Works everytime damn near.

Chris Paul

game is silky smooth man... Dude seems like he can average 30 and 10 with ease... But the dribble thru the legs then Cross into a mid-range is his go-to..

Melo- Pull-Up mid range

Nick Young- Step back between the legs into a jumper (Something I'm currently working and creates A LOT of space no wonder A. Rivers love it)

Kobe- head fake, head fake, head fake, head fake, head fake, head fake, head fake, head fake, bad shot...

Razor Sharpe, you probably

Razor Sharpe, you probably know Duncan's signature much better than I do, but I thought the swim move in the post was his go-to signature move?

5-6 Years ago, Yes and more

5-6 Years ago, Yes and more often that was Tim Duncan's signature, but now at the twilight of his career, he is settling more for jumpers and the one I descirbed (Forgot to include that it's a bank shot) is the one I see him use more than anything. His post moves are now "Plan B" moves at this juncture.

Wade- Pull up for jumper with

Wade- Pull up for jumper with defender covering you and sell it as badly as possible (possibly shooting ball into stands) so you will get the foul every single time regardless if you are touched or not.
