Moving, To begin this basketball drill, I want to see inside movement that mirrors the perimeter movement of the ball. For instance, start the post player at one low box, moving up the side of the lane to mid-post, then to high-post elbow, center high-post, other high-post elbow, down the other side to mid-and then low-post block. I want them shuffling their feet as they move, with wide stance, bent knees and upper body upright, while always facing out at the ball and with their hands in a ready, pass-receiving look. As they move, I will emphasize lane line rules and 3-seconds. So, when they stop in a position, I want the player to be sure the feet are placed outside the lane or FT linesnot touching the lines.
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.
“So, how do I develop these crazy good dribbling skills?” is the next question you’re asking. Of course, to become skilled at dribbling a basketball, you must practice, practice, practice! Basketball dribbling is a skill that is developed by having the basketball in your hand and practicing with it as often as possible. There are basketball dribbling drills that will definitely improve your dribble, but you must be willing to put the time and work into practicing the drills in order to get better. Remember to avoid looking at the ball while you are dribbling!
