With the Cleveland Cavaliers up eight points and under than six minutes remaining Tuesday in the fourth quarter against the Washington Wizards, Dion Waiters put the laundry in the washing machine, dropped in some detergent, and hit the spin cycle.
This incredible move to the basket resulted in a big layup that pushed the lead to 10 and the Cavs held on for the 95-90 victory, despite not having Kyrie Irving for the next few weeks. As you watch the replay of the move (especially with the first replay), check out how perfect Waiters' footwork is on the move.
As he gathers his dribble, he gives a short little step with his right foot to maintain his balance, but it doesn't count as a step because it's coming while he gathers his dribble. He then drops the right foot again before dragging it as the left foot comes down to complete the spin. A lot of players, especially young guys, would shuffle their feet during the spin. However, Waiters maintained his fundamentals on the play and glided into it.
Always keep your balance, kids, and you'll be able to make moves like Waiters.
