How to Use the "hesitation dribble" to isolate the big man with Deron Williams

Deron Williams is one of the most exciting point guards in the NBA, and watching big men try to guard him is hilarious. In this video he'll teach you how to get isolated on a big man using a screen, then use his hesitation dribble move to fake their big slow butt out and clear a lane to the basket.

From the Creator:

1.
Set up the screen
Use a subtle signal to call your big man up to set the screen.
2.
Isolate the big man
When the defenders switch to cover you, take advantage of the mismatch. Clear the lane so you can use your speed to beat their big man.
3.
Crossover
Hit the slower big man with a fake in one direction then cross him over the other way. This should get your defender moving back to cover your next step.
4.
Step back and hesitate
When you have your defender on his heels, take a big step back and pause with your dribble to get him to expect a shot.
5.
Go strong to the hole
Once he goes for the shot block, make your move around him and go for the clean finish.
