Lavin Says Roe Uses the Crab Dribble Too

Must be a Northeast Ohio move. When Delvon Roe (St. Edwards High School) got fouled with about (9) minutes to go in yesterday's Wisconsin - MSU game, ESPN color commentator and former UCLA Head Coach Steve Lavin said the following:

"Good pass over the top by Walton, and a the pin and the seal by Roe. And then Roe uses the Crab Dribble, or the Spider Dribble, which is below the knees to maneuver, there's the good target, the catch with two hands, now the little tiny one bounce dribble to maneuver into position for jump hook on the foul."

When 'Bron 'Bron used that term a month or so ago, the NBA hater community - headed by the Washington Wizards Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison - chuckled and acted like James made the term up. Must not have haters, because it sounds like my man Lav, in between slicking his hair back every few hours, has been teaching that little one bounce maneuver for some time now.
