Use this Pro Tip from professional basketball player Trae Young to evade a defender and line up for a shot.
In basketball, every player will face off with a defender. Whether it’s a zone defense or man-to-man coverage, a defender will attempt to block your shot — and every move.
Professional basketball player Trae Young adopted his own move to evade defenders. The “Trae Young Move” serves to lead a defender in the wrong direction.
Young, a point guard, says the move can help smaller guards get shots off quickly and create space. To do so, he focuses primarily on the defender, not his dribble.
