Ball Don't Lie - NBA

Nothing to watch tonight? Why not pull up a dissection of the Xs and Os, as brought to you by Coach Nick from BBallBreakdown, behind the 1962 NBA All-Star game. Live, from the Missouri Sports Palace!

Elgin Baylor sticks out to me, as it does for Coach Nick. A reverse lay-in, which was just unheard-of back then, to say nothing of the litany of athletic fakes and brilliant touch that made him such an imposing and sadly underrated NBA legend.

And Oscar Robertson's Dwyane Wade(notes)-esque inside-out dribble? Not bad. Not bad at all.
