Covers his whole arsenal beginning with the baseline spin, fallaways, jumphooks, counters, head and shoulder fakes, ball fakes, crossover dribbles, isolations on the perimeter, the elite footwork, some off-hand plays ect.
- Baseline spin at the 0:18 sec mark is deadly
- Those isolations against Cartwright, Kleine and Parish, Ewing, Donaldson throughout the video. Pretty crazy for a C to do that stuff creating so artistically and gracefully from the perimeter.
- 2:35, beautiful up and under move against A.C Green. That's one of those counters he could use knowing the defender would think he's going for the jumphook.
- The sequence from 3:52-5:10 is pretty crazy, all from one series. It makes me wish he was played one on one more often around that time period so he had a chance to display those skills more so, that combination of fakes and creativity is unreal. Its just so instinctive and based on reacting to the defense as opposed to making up his mind beforehand in terms of what move he's going to do. Steve Smith said the same thing regarding his moves and footwork that he tried emulating it but couldn't do it because it was completely based off a feel of the defender.
- 9:38 was a heatcheck, no doubt about it.
- Sick series of head fakes against Mason on 9:48
- I like the finishing touch to the video, the only shot he hadn't tried yet, a blind backhand
(although Fatal should've included one of the 3s he hit to drive the point home)
His post game is so complete and Chris Webber had mentioned this on open court that he had to "be really good basically first to add everything up." The play I mentioned vs A.C is a good example. If he doesn't have that jump hook on lock, that up and under wouldn't have worked. You couldn't really overplay him either way because he was great going baseline and towards the middle.
It also doesn't surprise me Hakeem used to emulate guards like Jordan and Penny (both excellent post-up players) at all when I see him pull stuff like this.
