The term breaking ankles launched from the floors of the NBA as countless stars showcased their supreme ball-handling skills that made other superstars at times look foolish.
In this video, the tradition continues as the Top 25 crossover and handles from last week are aggressive pieces of work that push the limits of athleticism.
Check out Kyrie Irving, Deron Williams, CJ McCollum, D’Angelo Russell, Yogi Ferrell, Nik Stauskas, Tyler Ulis, John Wall, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Goran Dragic, Al-Farouq Aminu, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker, Brian Roberts, and Delon Wright light it up on the court.
Williams in particular, looked incredible Friday night as the latest addition to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Williams flashed glimpses of old as his seven assists helped his new squad best the Atlanta Hawks in a epic 135-130 shootout.
“It’s a short time, but his veteran presence, a guy that’s run franchises,” James said when asked what stands out about Williams. “Been the head of franchises a few times in his career. Just to have someone like that, brings a basketball IQ, a professional, a guy that knows the game. We’re looking forward to having him for the long haul.”
Look for Williams to continue this style of unselfish play as Cleveland heads deep into the playoffs.
