The next of the simple basketball plays is the pick and roll. Player A goes near and behind an opponent who is guarding Player B. Player A has a wide, erect stance and is not moving on the point of contact with the opponent defender. Player B dribbles quickly by the pick by almost brushing shoulders with Player A. The dribble should be toward the basket and to a place where Player B can get a makeable shot. After setting the pick, Player A \"rolls\" quickly toward the basket and while facing the basketball. Player A should make an eager hand target and be ready for a pass from Player B. The pick and roll often works because the defense tends to guard Player A or Player B, but not both.
One of the easiest drills you can start with is to just dribble your basketball everywhere you go. Whether you just go for a walk, or a jog, or are walking to the park or anywhere else, take your basketball with you and dribble the entire time you are walking or jogging (Remember: without looking at the ball!). This will help you to develop the natural feel and rhythm of dribbling the ball, so eventually it will become second nature to you. Once you are comfortable with dribbling a basketball, then you can move on to the other specific dribbles I mentioned earlier. Always remember to practice dribbling a basketball with each hand. You want to be proficient dribbling with either hand, not just one. Once you feel comfortable dribbling, here are a few simple basketball dribbling drills to get you started to improve your ball handling skills and dribbling skills.
