The correct answer to this question is Pivot. This skill is used in the sport of basketball. It involves the player rotating the ball around the pivot foot. Pivoting is essential because it allows a player to avoid the defensive player. It also allows the player to find an open spot in the court so that they can take a shot. Like all basketball skills, there are rules for it.

One is that the player can rotate around the pivot foot. Another rule is that the player shouldn't lift the foot that they pivot off the floor. One of the most important ones is that the player shouldn't hold the ball for more than five seconds. If it is longer than five seconds, the defense will gain possession of the ball.
