I cant beat a center on a mismatch. I have 0 confidence in my handles. nada.
I am always ready to shoot, pass, score in the post, but I just cant dribble for shit.
Even tho I can make it work magic during simple pick ups with friends, but other then that I suck. Not that I have any confidence issues during socializing or anything.
Maybe I dribble to soft. I just have to know how to make me feel superior to my opponent. To make him feel like "oh shit".
practice in game situations
go hard and fast when you work on your handles, you want to pound that ball to the point you are going to lose it
build in hesitation, change of speed, change of direction into your game
when the opponets see you are scared or inconfident of handling the ball, that's when they will press the F out of you and even trap you to cause a turn over.
for now, you have two choice, pass the damn ball to someone that can handle the rock or work on your handles
