While we head into the playoffs, fresh off of stories like this, it’s pretty easy to get lost in the glitz and flash of the NBA. That’s not to say that the best NBA footwork isn’t glitzy or flashy—it often is. But it also tends to play second-fiddle to the high-flying dunks and thunderous alley-oops.

However, we are currently in something of a renaissance when it comes to ankle-breaking crossovers and crazy stutter-steps that haven’t been seen since the days of Tim Hardaway.  And there’s a long lineage of crazy steps and jukes in this video compilation of the best NBA footwork, featuring the likes of Jordan, Drexler, Olajuwon, and Kobe.

Take a look:

You might want to ice your ankles just after watching this.

If fancy footwork is the type of thing that really gets your motor running, we’ve got some NFL footwork for you—if you’re not married to the NBA or anything. You can check that out right here.

I guess it’s footwork Friday here at TPS. Get excited.
