There is some physics in one of the greatest moves in basketball and in my mind the best. The ability to move the ball from left to right, right to left at 1m/s then to cross right back over at a 8m/s shows true skill for someone handling the ball. Normally the change in momentum will allow a person to easily get by the person guarding them because it will cause them to move their feet faster than they can think about at the time. From a slow cross to a fast cross forces people to be caught off guard, when someone is off guard it allows you to get your shot off for that split second or to get the half a step you need to get by the defender in order to get your #BUCKET. The greater the velocity even if it has a 1 meter distance helps most people score proving physics in the great cross-over.
