Now this is a nasty crossover.
Brendan Paul is a young up-and-coming basketball guard and lacrosse star at Hawken High School in Gates Mill, Ohio, which abuts the tony Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights. He’s got a good shot from the perimeter, but an even better crossover to set up that shot at times.
Case-in-point: This one-on-one take, where Paul forced a defender to literally lose his shoe before pulling up with a trey.
The de-shoeing came during a simple drill at a recent Next Up Recruits event. It was an impressive move, and an equally impressive shot. Something tells us we’ll be seeing plenty more like this from the Cleveland area in the years ahead.
