Shaquille O’Neal Black Tornado Move: Basketball Moves


Only if your mothers next to me…OHHHH. Hi
I’m coach Castellaw and welcome to Shot Mechanics.com today we are going to learn the Black Tornado
post move. The Black Tornado is a great post move especially for larger posts that have
a lot of defenders really leaning on them quite a bit. Basically what you are going
to do is you are going to use your defenders own strength against them. So as you catch
in the paint and your defender is really leaning on you, you are going to feel what direction
they are pressing and all your simply going to do is spin in the oposite direction. So
if your defenders really pushing on your left shoulder you are going to spin to the right.
If your defender is really pushing on your right shoulder you are going to spin to the
left using your momentum to twist them up. Alright now let’s break down how Shaquille
O’Neal does it. Patience is what makes this move work so well for Shaq. So Shaquille begins
by dropping his pivot foot closer to the basket forcing the defender to stand their ground.
This forces them to lean on him hard so they don’t give up easy position. As they do Shaq
quickly rotates his shoulders and uses the defenders strength against them. Notice how
Shaq also times the defenders contact. On his initial drop pivot it forces separation
from the defender so as the defender gathers to push back that is when Shaq times his spin
throwing the defender out of position. Well I’m Coach Castellaw and thank you so so much

  2. I thought the black tornado move was without the ball. And he spins back door on the player tring to body him up. And catches a alley oop. Blake Griffin use that move.

  3. It is really the exact same thing, one is with the ball and one is without. Ya Blake is great at the opp but I would love to see him get better at it with the ball! Thanks for watching and I really appreciate the comment!

    Thanks again,
    Coach C.

  4. Really helpful evn more cuz im in intramurals im trying to make the team good job @shotmechanics thnk u u guys r doing a good job keep up the vids

  5. Thanks for the video Coach C. I used this move a lot in the post and one of the important point is to use your 'elbow' to spin and lock the opponent with it (including your body). Shaq is great at this move because of his massive gravity and wide body.

  6. Kobe 8 . It is a little expense but its traction is incredible compared to the KD 6 and it is a lot lighter but has less cushion then the Melo m9. Plus you can customize it. If your going for looks, then choose the KD 6. The Melo m9 is a bad choice for a PG .

  7. Hey coach c, I absolutely love your videos. Can I get a request? Could you do a tutorial on how to do a Russell Westbrook head-shoulder crossover fake? Thanks

  8. The Kobe 8's were really rough on my feet! I would go with a different shoe, but tons of people seem to like them :/… I'm interested to see what the new KD's are like!

  9. Ya! It really is a great move 🙂 And Shaq killed guys with this because the HAD to body him up as hard as they could.

  10. On the list! We are going to put together a whole international playlist in the near future!

    Thanks for the suggestion!
    Coach C.

  11. For some reason the Kobe 8's make my feet go numb… I love the Kobe 6's personally but I have never heard anyone other then me complain about the 8's.

  12. Just wondering, would you or anyone know how to get round someone on 1 on 1? Just wondering if anyone knows any good moves at all?
    Thanks

  13. hi coach ,really good video..one thing..what do you suggest to do if the defender  has the arm in the centre of your shoulders ? 

  14. Both hakeem an shaq used this move but I think this is more hekeem's move because he used it along with his others moves and so used it more

  15. Subbed. Nice vid, hate to quibble but your footwork isn't the same. Shaq does more of an aggressive front pivot, keeping his outside foot down the whole time where as you're drop stepping. Funny how commenters don't see footwork but they'll notice a typo.. Very graceful move for the big man, props to Shaq.

  16. in the example your pivot foot is used wrong and you are dribbling way too early. Hakeem and shaq dribble after they complete they're whole pivot

  17. Thanks man, just to mention the two mistakes you made in 1:00.

    1. Wrong pivot foot, if you look at Shaq / Hakeem's front pivot move, they always pivot around the foot near baseline. The way you pivot will not pass the defenders unless they are extremely slow.
    2. First dribble with the wrong hand. It's obviously better to use the hand that is further to the defender to separate the ball and the defender. Look at Shaq's tape which you have used here. Before I was dribbling with the hand at defenders side and figured out that if guys are good D player, it's easy to steal the ball.

    Like your videos, but I do need to point out because it can be quite confusing for beginners.

  18. sorry coach but the move u doing in this video is different from the Shaq one. The pivot foot you going to use in this move is the key for the W. :/

  19. Oooooh, that's really intersting. It's like a judo flip, but without the flip. It uses the same type of physics that judo does, that is using the opponent's weight against themselves
