    With the NBA on hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, Portland Trail Blazer guard CJ McCollum had plenty of time to work on his hot footage and the effort paid off.

    Speaking on his Cheer up podcast with ESPN’s Jordan Schultz, the two discussed which players had the most unstoppable moves in their career. McCollum was methodical with his answers, but he left some of the NBA’s top players off his list. So it goes into the top five.

    The Blazer listed, in no particular order, Allen Iverson’s crossover, Michael Jordan’s fadeaway, Manu Ginobili’s Eurostep, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s hook and Hakeem Olajuwon’s Dream Shake.

    dagger Nowitzki’s turnaround jumper was left off the list. It was too Kobe BryantThe spin move and the roll of George Gervin.

    But McCollum had a solid reasoning for his choices, and considering that he tries to play like A.I. done, it’s easy to understand why it went with those moves.

    “As a guard, he changed the game with that crossover,” said McCollum of Iverson.

    And what about some players who define the game era as LeBron James, Larry Bird, Bill Russell and Magic Johnson?

    “I think some players, although they revolutionized and changed the game, they didn’t do it one way,” said McCollum. “How Bird did a little bit of everything.”
