When two players are competing face to face, one with the ball looking to score and the other defending, sometimes one simple bounce of the basketball makes all the difference.
The crossover dribble is and always has been the go-to move for offensive players on the attack.
Allen Iverson was as talented as anyone attacking the basket, but at just 6', he relied heavily on his crossover to generate space between him and his defender and create his own shot. As much as Iverson despised talking about practice, he loved breaking opponents' ankles in the game.
In today's NBA, Dwyane Wade has one of the most efficient crossovers in the game, but while Wade often uses the move to weave his way to the basket, other times he uses it to create space for a step-back jump shot.
The 2012 NBA draft is sure to produce a variety of both attackers and shooters who utilize the crossover dribble regularly. With the draft now just one day away, let's take a look at the five prospects with the most ridiculous crossovers.
