This is an interesting effect... If you take the animation, and run it backwards, it looks just the same.

This trick should be done only once or twice in a routine.

This is a good move, one of my favorites. One of the ways that I use to make the illusion of the ball floating up to the hand, is to reduce the amount of movement of the tossing hand. I do this by using some wrist action and a little flick of the fingers to get a good toss with as little visible of the motion of the hand as possible. And of course as nicely illustrated here, the receiving hand shouldn't move much at all, just a little movement of the fingers as the ball is caught at the top of the arc.
