Dirk's one-legged fadeaway is a classic.
Rondo's floater. Pierce's stepback. Duncan off the glass.

Or that there are so many teams and so many players that a lot of the stuff that was invented earlier and is considered "patented" by a given player has proliferated throughout the league and become mostly common-place. Jordan's signature turnaround fade wasn't a move he invented, it's just one that he made famous and used more prominently than a lot of other guys, but it was in the league long before him. Hell, WILT was using that every now and again, to say nothing of wing guys. Nique and B King, drafted a few years before MJ each, used that move as the foundation of their 80s wing post game, for example. Bird used it, too. And so many more.
A signature move and a go-to move aren't necessarily the same thing. We think of go-to moves when we think of post players (centers, as you indicated, but post-up 4s and wings/guards, too) and there aren't a ton of good post guys in the league. That leaves most guys taking a screen or otherwise dribble-penetrating to start their possession, so unless someone is rocking the UTEP Two-Step, you're not going to see a ton of really individualized moves.

As a Raptor fan I'm shocked Davis still has eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!
If he plucks his eyebrows would be harder for the opponents to localize his eyes...

Carmelo and Durants are not signature moves, they are just stop and shoot. That's something everyone does just not as well as they do. That's why I said not just somebody hoisting a shot.The Duncan bank is a signature shot and one that I definitely should have included.
you made a thread about go to moves, not signature moves. not every go to move has to be a signature move.
