There are levels. My favorite move out of Kobe’s bag which originally came from The Dream. This is a great breakdown #Repost @joerik with @get_repost
#7 Details about Kobe’s signature baseline fade
1️⃣ bump into the defender to get as close to the basket as possible and create separation.
2️⃣ Hop with both feet in the air to get into that wide base.
3️⃣ In the wide base you want to drop the shoulders and hip to make yourself lower than the defender.
4️⃣ Shoulder shimmy fake towards to middle to setup the defender.
5️⃣ Turn the baseline foot already towards the basket so you don’t have to turn the hips in the air.
6️⃣ Jump straight backwards and bring the ball up above the head.
7️⃣ Make the release as high as possible. You can kick your leg out, makes it even harder to contest the shot and gives you more balance in the fade. - 1 hour ago
