With no NBA basketball currently on the program, players are doing what they can to keep themselves entertained. In the CJ McCollum podcast, the Portland Trail Blazers star and ESPN basketball analyst and co-host Jordan Schultz discussed the most unstoppable moves in the history of the league.
Schultz and McCollum posted his opinion on Twitter: Allen Iverson crossover, Michael Jordan fadeaway, Manu Ginobili eurostep, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar skyhook and Hakeem Olajuwon dream shake.
However, according to New Orleans Pelicans goalkeeper Josh Hart, an NBA signing move was a glaring omission from McCollum’s list.

Nowitzki’s one-legged fadeaway is without a doubt one of the most famous and effective moves in NBA history. The move helped the seven-foot German player become the best foreign player the league has ever seen and lead an infallible career in the Hall of Fame.
Of course, it is difficult to remove one of these players from the established list, but for not having Dirk’s signature, there is a glaring error for many.
In 21 seasons, all with the Dallas Mavericks, Nowitzki averaged 20.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game, while shooting 47.1% from the ground and 38% since beyond the arc.
Nowitzki has also been named to the All-Star team 14 times, an All-NBA team 12 times, and was named MVP of the league in 2007. The stretch of four also helped the Mavs win their first and only championship. the history of the franchise in 2011 when he led Dallas to an upheaval on the talented bMiami Heat team.
