I'm from Chicago, and have heard this term for over 25 years. We called it a crip' when I was young because 'anybody' should be able to make one; even a crippled person. Hence the term crip', and in no way a shot at those persons who are handicapped.
The most common shot in basketball is a layup.
Jump shot, layup, and [slam] dunk.
Hook shot, jump shot and layup.
It depends on where you are shooting from. if its in a layup u can use both, it also depends and what size you are. my opinion is 7.5
There is no official name for that shot. It is generally considered a layup, depending on how they shoot the ball.
is a two-point shot attempt made by leaping from below, laying the ball up near the basket, and using one hand to bounce it off the backboard and into the basket. The motion and one-handed reach distinguish it from a jump shot. The layup is considered the most basic shot in basketball. When doing a layup, the player lifts the outside foot, or the foot away from the basket.
