1 Hey Coach,
Why is the Shake 'N Bake called the Shake 'N Bake and which NBA player do you think can "shake it 'n bake it" the best?

Hey AI5454,
The term Shake 'N Bake originally comes from the name of a tasty coating for chicken, which was invented by the fine people at Kraft. The coating and a piece of chicken are shaken together in a plastic bag, then the coated piece of chicken is baked in the oven. In basketball, the Shake 'N Bake is a move where a player gives a body fake, usually from side to side, to get past the opponent. It's called the Shake 'N Bake because the player shakes his body, then bakes (or burns) his opponent by taking the ball to the hoop. (ex. "Iverson has the ball. He shakes 'n bakes around Stackhouse and takes it to the rack for two!") Like its chicken counterpart, the basketball Shake 'N Bake is a move that is quickly put together, and turns into something better - a nice basket.

I think the best Shake 'N Baker in the NBA is Allen Iverson. His crossover move and foot speed allow him to Shake 'N Bake his way past some of the NBA's greatest defenders. Honorable mentions go to Stephon Marbury and Tracy McGrady who also serve up very tasty Shake 'N Bakes.

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
