Default I can't spin a basketball on my finger.

am I the only one who can't do this? I've been trying to do it off and on since 6th grade. and I still can't do it.

I feel like such an inferior human being. I knew people who haven't played basketball in their lives, they come to my house, pick up the basketball, and spin it on their finger. I swear to you. they bat it around for a bit to make it spin faster. and I'm just like WTF why not me?

I'm a pretty good basketball player.. I handle the ball pretty well. anyone else not able to do this?

It's ok, I never was able to make sky hooks from halfcourt like Meadowlark.

I never practiced it, but I do it occasionally. I can get it to last about 30 seconds off one spin, can't bat it usually or I knock it off and I can switch fingers while it's spinning. I just palm the ball and spin it clockwise as I let it roll up to my fingertips

I can't do it either, and even in grade school people could do it and I couldn't but I'm a better player than them. It's frustrating, I try to do it and the ball falls off.
