The Professor With The Baseline Behind-the-Back

Now, the Time Lapse is pretty nice. You have to be able to move your feet fast, and it's tougher to do on an outside court. If you notice the crossover, he's not even doing it that fast, but the speed of his feet (and his body movements) makes it seem like it's super quick.

This guy is my idol ! (after Kobe ofc)
He does the same move here at 0:34
Dude was defending him in sandals.
Professor may be a good ball handler on the street but if you stay in his chest he won't do much with you and the guy dribbles the ball so high I'm amazed no one has stolen it from him more often. But alas the era of dribbling beneath your knee is long gone and defenders don't make people pay for it anymore. I remember watching Rafer Alston trying to shake Deron Williams in a similar way, Deron stayed in his chest and Rafer couldn't do anything with him and had to pass it. Later on Deron gave him space to try to make a move but waited for the first move to do the 2 step to the right or left to catchup with his dribble, and Rafer eventually had to pass again.
But with the professor, sometimes when he dribbles low he has success and has a nice array of moves, but when he goes to the high dribble and carries it while curving his hand, how he hasn't gotten ripped more often for that shows how little defense is played on the street nowadays.
"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
