Crossover / Double change in front

Once again, and while we wait for the begining of the Finals, I bring some of the Rondo's tricks.

Now we see his crossover, right in the middle of the key, with a great change of pace and direction, to leave the defender behind (defending the ball with his body by advancing his left leg) and to force Shaq's foul after a shot fake (you'll remember this fake from my last post)

In the second half of the video, a "simple" double change in front. You should focus on his balance when he goes towards his right hand and then towards his left hand. The way he bends his legs to keep control, and to be able to change direction quickly. Let's not forget about his left hand pass for the opened player in the three point line...
