Basketball Hesitation Dribble

Hesitation Dribble:
The hesitation dribble is a dribbling action with an intentional change of pace or, like a stutter step, intended to confuse or freeze a defender. The change makes it more difficult for the defender to predict the movement of the ball and so it is harder for him to make a steal. This basketball  (external link) move is often performed by street players.

In the professional league, players are known to use this move in order to generate an easy layup or jump shot. The hesitation dribble is most effective in open-court situations, and is usually used in half-court sets to sucker a defender closer to the ball before the dribbler blows past him.
