But Chris Paul noticed something strange about the ball after messing around. When he whipped his hand under the ball, he generate enough backspin for it to bounce easily back to him. It wasn't that difficult to control. "They were switching the balls to a different material, where I could actually throw it out away, really far from me and it can still come back," Paul said.

Thus, a new move was born. While Paul wasn't the very first human to try this unique dribble, he was the first to take what was once used by AND-1 Mixtape legend Grayson Boucher (aka "The Professor") and make it NBA-functional. "I'm not dunking over anybody, so I've got to come up with little tricks like that," Paul said. Paul's peers are now making it a part of their games, too. John Wall was so convincing in a game against the Bulls that ESPN's Mike Breen thought he lost control of the ball. SB Nation

James' elevation to First Vice President is the most significant step yet in that process.
