The veteran guard Jamal Crawford explains in a new video for The Player’s Tribune, he actually made up the famed shake-and-bake on the fly during a Pro-Am All-Star Game. It’s not even a complete version of his idealized move:
“What a lot of people don’t know is, the version the NBA has seen is the reduced version. The way I made it up, I do it on command, but I don’t want to show everybody since I was waiting until I made the All-star game to pull it out.
“But after it didn’t happen, it’s just like one of those Prince records that’s in the vaults, it’s not going to ever come out.”
