Siding the Ball

Siding the Ball:
Controlling the ball from the sides is an extremely important basketball  (external link) skill to develop. Siding the ball is like “palming” a ball except from the side . Centrifugal force , rather than grip, will keep the ball in the player’s hand.

In higher-level moves, the arm can be used to pin the ball .
Siding the ball allows the player to dramatically “ sell a direction ” or “ fake ”, and then instantly move in a different direction.

This is also called “show and go” and results from an ability to contol the ball from the sides.

Spanish ~ Español - control lateral del balón
