The Figure-8 Place your feet more than shoulder’s with apart, slightly bend your knees and bend at the waist. Hold the ball in your right hand, down by your right knee. Pass the ball behind your left knee to your left hand. Bring the ball around your left knee to the front and then pass the ball behind your right knee to your right hand. This will make a “figure-8” around your knees as you are passing the ball continuously. Keep going around and through your knees, first going around the front of your right knee to behind your left knee to your left hand, then going around the front of your left knee to behind your right knee to your right hand. Repeat this drill 15 times going as fast as you can. Then, repeat the drill going in the opposite direction. Remember: don’t watch the ball!
In the 2006 WC competition held in Saitama, Japan, the team only managed to come in third place, winning a bronze medal. The 2004 Athens Olympics produced the same result. The 2002 WC tournament held in Indianapolis, IN, did not end well for the U.S., as a team riven by internal discord stumbled to a sixth-place finish, the worst showing in history by an American squad in an international tournament.
And most of all, the key to improve your basketball skills is to never give up. Keep practicing even though you feel fatigued or think that you have reached what you think is your top-level game. The best players always know that they still have a lot to learn about the game. There is still a long way to go if you wish to improve your basketball skills. The way to get better at it is having the determination, the proper motivation and the right amount of effort to excel at the game.
