    Copied from Jordan. No one but Kobe could ever duplicate it though.

    Sabonis show and go to me. It's beauty is that you never know what's coming next. He had multiple ways to finish it and he could pass it at every step of the way.

    I guess in that unpredictability sense, it shares it with with dream shake. But I grew up watching Sabonis, so I'm partial towards that drive.

    Also, everything that Iverson did, when it worked.

    Odd that dunks is not an option.
    For me I love to see a good spin, be it as a post move, a fast break or 1-on-1 drive.

    I have a hard time voting in this. I don't see the Dream shake as a definitive move. I see it as a combination of moves with options to change and counter. I love watching it and I love the fade away shot but on the other hand I think the poll should be including spins and crossovers.

    I found it funny when I started hearing "Euro step" and had no idea what it meant and then realized it was something that earned me the nickname "slow mo" in high school. That said I still don't find it to be a beautiful move.

    Most beautiful move in basketball?

    How can you not go with the synchronized double-flop? Let's face it, flopping takes skill, finesse and timing to pull off successfully. And that is just for one flopper. Now, take two floppers, flopping at the exact same time, and having the art down to such perfection that they fall and flail their arms and legs in the air at the exact same time, almost as if they are moving as one.

    That, my friends, could only come from years and years of practicing the flop.

    Someone should make a poll asking who does the Euro Step best:

    Harden
    Manu
    T. Evans
    Wade
    Paul

    Seriously, seriously, when will we ever see a 7 footer do a crossover starting at the 3 pt line again? (#2- Dreamshake on DRob)

    I guess it's because I coach,but my favorite move to see is a forward that establishes positions, posts up, takes one power dribble and goes with baby hook at the rim.


    Dream did this easily, especially as he got older. Still beautiful to see.

    Why would you put dream shake as an option on a Houston Rockets fan website if you really wanted to know? I voted Euro-step because the dream shake is gone.

    The Skyhook is the most beautiful moves in the NBA.

    D-Mo once had a skyhook highlight.

    Euro step is a re-name, it's the SIDE-step.

    Underrated:

    Kiki Vandeweghe step back jumper.

    I have to say the Dreamshake because it was a thing of beauty. Hakeem is my favorite player of all time. I feel privileged to have been able to watch him throughout his college and pro career.
