Default Re: Practicing Handles

One of the best things I've done for my handles is buy/use a weighted training ball. You end up dribbling the ball much harder than you normally do, which in turn improves your handles significantly.

Going left was a little uncomfortable for me (I could still go left, just didn't like it) until I got my weighted training ball. Now it's like second nature to me.

He was fucking around man. I saw when he said that. He shouldn't because young kids will go out and do that dumb shit.

Trust me. Muscle memory is too important.

I believe that anything you do to make the drill more challenging will only make you better.

Dribble with left toss and catch with your right, switch hands. Toss and cross over, do the same while going behind your back then between your legs.

Toss and catch with your right hand standing at the 3 point line, after 5 tosses toss the ball halfway to the basket drive catch the ball with your toss hand and finish with the other

Use your finger tips to control the ball. You kind of have to cup your hand but I think this is more important when your really young and first learning to dribble to keep you from smacking the ball. As you get more comfortable you kind of just fit your hand around the ball. Another great drill is one finder dribbles. Dribble low to the ground one finger at a time. Get used to moving the ball around with each finger
