These videos did more for me than just pump me up, they show the way a player makes a move and the reaction of the opposition to it. Watch as Chris Paul makes 7 footers look around scared on a switch, watch Kevin Durant crossing people and launching jumpers from so deep you have no idea how to stop him. Watch, learn, practice, and bust the moves on court.
Watch. Absorb. Mimic. Imitate. Soak in the subtlety of the world class players and replicate them in practice, visualizing a defender falling down in front of you. More than half of the game is mental, you need to know what your third move is before you make your first.
Don’t imitate the bloopers though.

Top ankle breakers of the 2011-2012 NBA Season
I’m pretty sure there are more than 10 ankle breakers in this one. Can’t overstate the importance of looking ahead, visualizing. Ankle breakers are often the result of imperceptible movements which break the defender’s rhythm and throw them off guard.
