    It's a beautiful layup that only chosen ones in the world can do.

    Most of these people are very very smooth.

    This move is very special, because at your local gym, playground, ymca, or even d1 college level...the finger-rolls can't be seen.

    Only in the NBA.[​IMG]

    Are you being poetic or something? I hope so, cause a finger roll while a piece of art is notONLY found in the NBA. There are some guys out there that can do a serious finger roll and are not in the NBA.
