Kyrie Irving`s trick

An incredible Kyrie Irving`s technique – a 360 degrees turn. The movement itself is not difficult: however, in the video tutorial you’ll find some useful tips, which will make it possible to perform the movement more effectively.

Start learning the movement from the place:

  1. Firstly, you must be in the lowest stand — this will give you greater stability and an opportunity to make a quick jerk. A normal stand would be the one in which you can easily touch the knees with your hand.
  2. Swipe the ball as hard as you can and start the rotation across the back on the opposite leg, i.e. if you perform dribbling on your right leg, then the turn is performed with your left leg.
  3. Make accelerating forward.

ATTENTION! Don’t forget to cover the ball from defender with your free hand and body!

It was too early that Ron-Ron rushed to the right, also, he worked too slowly with his legs – Evans sweetened the medicine with a spectacular reversal.

 A trick by Andre Iguodala


So, the key moments:

  1. Active dribbling to the right.
  2. An abrupt stop and moving the ball between your legs.
  3. Put the front leg to the back one. Make sure that the legs are “charged”, i.e. bent — this way you will be able to make the throw in a fast and high jump.
  4. Jump and throw.

Croosovers by Dre Baldwin


Here Dre offers firstly to perform the movements without a ball for the speed of legs movement, then with a ball, and in the end to add the range of motion + perform bouncing to the back. This way it will be easier to catch an opponent when he moves towards you.

 LeBron James: video lesson of basketball

In this video lesson 3-times MVP of NBA regular championship shows one of the most effective techniques – a step-back. If this technique is not yet in your arsenal, it’s high time to learn!

A small comment: you take a step forward, simultaneously moving the ball between your legs. The defender bounces back, and you in turn also make a kick back. Now you`ve broken a distance and are free to throw.
