Even at his young age, Jayson Tatum’s a bag of moves for defenders was deep. This includes a crossover move against the Atlanta Hawks.
On this play, rookie De’Andre Hunter was playing Tatum close on defense. Jayson drove right and pulled back left to keep Hunter honest. The minimal space grew wider when Tatum hit a cross over to the right, stepping to the side before fading away. Hunter still got the contest but the ball swished through the hoop.
The sneakers Tatum rocked for this crossover was the Air Jordan XXXIV. The 34th jumpman sneaker features large Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot to give Tatum even more bounce to his step. A cored out pebax plate surrounds these units for lightweight stability. The upper is composed of a lightweight mesh for breathability, with a woven layer adding much needed durability.
Jayson rocked a multicolor “International Women’s Day” colorway for this moment, which is currently unavailable.
