My Money Move: The Step-Back J

“My money move is always, you know, my isolation out by the logo. Jab-step, pull-up J. That’s what I go to all the time. What I usually do is try to get 15-feet on in by the logo. I like to catch the ball, usually with my back to the basket. If the defender is playing me close, it’s usually a quick rip through, or after I face ‘em, I try to size ‘em up and try and get a little air space and you know, pull up for the jumper. Money.”
