While player testimonies are not the most reliable sources (e.g. many players often talk about how they move and perform particular skills in a manner which does not align with how they actually move in the game), nonetheless, this is an interesting video. Cruyff provides an introduction into the limitations behind teaching moves in basketball. When supplemented with an understanding of ecological dynamics, this accounts for the emergence of the ‘Cruyff turn’ and why Cruyff never had to practice or rehearse it in order for it to be expressed within the game.
