A teardrop is a move used in basketball usually used against bigger people. A teardrop is a floater just a really high one and is really a high fingeroll. When using the teardrop you want to make sure to time it.
So the way to set up a teardrop, you should first use your crossovers and try to shift them to get an easy pathway or lane to the basket. Once you have your clear path the teardrop is now you’re lethal weapon.
When you’re doing the teardrop you want to make sure that it is a high one. If you’re teardrop is low, what good is it against a tall defender. You want to make sure to release the ball at the correct power as well as the correct distance.
The teardrop is a move made for more elite guards and is kind of like an upgrade from a floater. If you can seem to get the teardrop down you should practice the floater first as it is very easy to use.
