Is that human? Poole’s eye-defying crossover goes viral in slo-mo originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Jordan Poole might need to start donning a cape.

The Warriors’ burgeoning star had a tricky crossover in Golden State’s forgettable 123-115 loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday that looked cool in real time.

Nice move, right? But then when you see the same move in slow motion, it seems, well, other worldly.

Now it’s “mind blown” category.

Let’s break it down. Kristaps Porzingis and Tomas Satoransky look like they’re in great position to stop Poole from driving the lane. Poole dribbles with his left hand through his legs to initially start slicing between them. Then he somehow maintains possession with his right hand, goes behind his back like a a magic trick to dribble it back between his legs with his right hand and lays it up. It happens so quickly that it almost looks like Porzingis tries to trip him, but that’s only because Poole pulls off something Houdini-esque.

And poor Porzingis. He’ll have nightmares about the Warriors since it was Steph Curry who completely fooled him with an awesome olé move a couple of weeks ago.
