Top 5 / Top 10

Great players usually have moves that people associate with them. It may be because of its flashiness, the power involved or just the ridiculous number of times they attempt the move. Nowadays, James Harden seems to have perfected the step-back 3, Steph Curry's off-the-dribble 3 is as deadly as it gets and so on.

There are other moves, however, which have captured the imagination of fans over the years. It could be a borrowed move that they have perfected or an original, the likes of which hadn't been seen before.

Here, we rank the top 10 signature moves of all time:

#10 LeBron James' Chasedown Blocks

We kick things off with the King and his routine chase-down blocks. It's kind of ridiculous how often he manages to do it and it's not something that's started just recently. Bron's been barrelling down the court to block shots in transition since his 1st stint with the Cavs. The Cavs back then used to even keep track of how many times he did it during the season

Whenever a player is on the fast break against a team LeBron is on, they simply cannot afford to be casual laying it in. You normally wouldn't think a 6'8 guy can run down the court so quickly, but LeBron is a freak athlete and closes in before his opponents even realize it.

There have been a lot of top players who've fallen victim to that vicious chase-down block, including Curry, Iverson, Harden, Derrick Rose, Kobe and of course the most iconic one on Andre Iguodala. You'd think they'd just stop attempting some of those casual layups in transition and just dunk it in, to avoid being on LeBron's highlight reel.
