WATCH: Ricci and Juan GDL try to do Harden's stepback
Don't forget to dribble before gathering :D

UP Fighting Maroons teammates Juan Gomez de Liaño and Ricci Rivero took to the court and demonstrated how to properly execute the step-back jumper of reigning NBA MVP James Harden in a segment of ABS-CBN S+A's 'The Score.'

Much like the Skyhook of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the fadeaway jumpers of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Dirk Nowitzki, the Dream Shake of Hakeem Olajuwon, and the Dipper Dunk of Wilt Chamberlain, this go-to-move has tormented defenses throughout the NBA.

In fact, as of this writing, Harden has posted 30+ points in his 23 consecutive games, using this unstoppable move as a primary offensive tool, averaging to a fine tune of 36.2 points per game, the highest average since Michael Jordan's 37.1 in 1986-87, making a strong case for another Maurice Podoloff trophy in his closet. 

See how these two make use of this deceptive move so you could too! 

Don't forget to dribble before gathering.
