Streetball Moves in the NBA
It has long been said, that to make the league, you need to leave all the flash behind from your game, and focus on the fundamentals.

However, it doesn’t always work that way. Every now and again you will see a streetball move in the NBA; a player putting on a show that makes the crowd get on their feet.

We’ve searched the archives and put together 33 of the most streetball moves you will ever see in the NBA!

Check ’em out:

1) Stephon Marbury with the Wrap Around Fake on Vlade Divac

One of the great moves ever in an all-star game – such a shame he didn’t finish it.

2) Lance Stephenson through the Legs Shovel Pass
