Ranking the NBA's Finest Eurosteppers
Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Ever since Sarunas Marciulionis brought the Eurostep to the NBA in the 1990s, the move has gained steam and developed into one of the more famous flashy techniques employed by professional basketball players.

Commonly used in the open court by players separated from the basket by a single defender, the Eurostep involves planting a foot to one side, faking hard in that direction and then exploding to the other side of the court. It's a quick move, and it's one that's nearly impossible to stay in front of when executed correctly.  

Quite a few young guards are starting to use the move, although they still can't touch the five players in these rankings. Norris Cole, James Harden, Austin Rivers, Derrick Rose, Ricky Rubio and John Wall (listed in alphabetical order) might work their way into the top five in the near future, but they aren't there yet. 

Fear not, however, because John Calipari will continue to churn out talented guards with Eurosteps in their arsenals.

This move isn't going to just die away.
