I'm watching this and he starts at the left side of the key above the foul line, does a jump and then turns, lifts his right foot, takes another step and then does a layup off his right foot.

So it's a
1. jump stop
2. pivot off his right foot
3. moves to his left foot
4. jump off his right foot for a layup.

Refs never seem to call it because they can't figure out what is going on.

the same reason they dont do the stomach punch and walk to the ft line move...

Isn't that the Time Warp?;)

You get 100 free men if you jump OVER the rim.

And 100 live! achievement points.

Sadly, this doesn't even seem that outrageous after some stuff I've seen in the NBA this year, people are taking 4 steps (yes, 4) without dribbling the ball. Even funnier is that it made the NBATV highlights. Pretty sure it was in the Wizard's game.

Mandatory "Diane Wade is an asshole" statement.

Someone put the quote where Phil jackson made fun of Wade's spin move pls!!

BTW, Wade made 21-23 FT last night against the jazz.

I didn't really want to bait trolls or anything. I was seriously wondering why more players don't do it. It seems that it's too quick for refs to notice if steps are taken or not. It's not that difficult a move, it's just a willingness to be out of control.

I think it is easier to be "willing" to be out of control if you know you are going to get bailed by the refs either ways...

I see that Tony Parker is picking it up and it works to perfection. Does 360, no walk called but he lost it out of bounds.
