This is a great ball handling basketball drill for improving ball control and being able to do two different things simultaneously. The broken side windshield wipers move is not a dribbling move you would use in a game, but it is still a really good two ball basketball dribbling drill because it develops your hands and touch.
It is important that the player pushes themselves during this basketball drill, and are not worried about losing the basketball. Going your hardest and potentially losing the basketball is part of the drill. This is also a great youth basketball drill to do with younger players that are just learning how to handle the basketball and need to develop better hand strength and ball control.
