Dirk Nowitzki discusses his one-legged fadeaway (VIDEO)

Oct 25, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

Dirk Nowitzki has become famous for his go-to move, the one-legged fadeaway shot that’s simply impossible for defenders to guard.

It’s so good that Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are among the current players who have paid the utmost respect to Nowitzki by emulating his move and implementing it as part of their own respective games.

Dirk is one of the best shooters in the game, and standing seven feet tall, it’s difficult enough for anyone to try and stop his shot in a one-on-one situation. But fading away off of one foot, it then becomes unimaginable.

    Kevin Durant can kill with that move if he perfects it. I don’t know how you guard Durant if he develops moves like that or works on Kareem’s “Sky Hook”. Durant already has the “Dream Shake” down. Scary how much more upside he has to get better!

    Bryant’s fadeaway emulates Jordan’s, who Nowitzki himself credits as the best to have shot it.
