Every true basketball fan and player knows the crossover move “The Shammgod” but there is more history to it before God Shammgod made the move famous in the 90’s.  Here is footage showing the crossover technique originally known as “El Latigo” or “The Whip” in Spanish. The move originated over in Yugoslavia in the 80’s by  Danko “El Killer del Perimetro” Cvjeticanin, a Croatian baller.  While the “Shammgod” was not invented by God Shammgod, he took it to a different level with different combinations which you can see in the video below (around 3:00) presented by our friends over at Slam Online.
