I want to pull my hair out every time I see it happen. We must repeat it at least 100 times a year, and still some players just can't help themselves.
Is it because all they see on Sportscenter is players dangling through defensemen and scoring beautiful goals so that's what they want to do?
That's because they don't Watch the players feet. Because they would notice that their feet are always moving during the dekes.
