This is an advanced basketball dribbling drill designed to work on the crossover move and work on the player touch and ball handling in general. The player will get a lot of repetitions at the crossover move with both hands, and having both basketballs moving at the same time will really build up hand coordination.
Two basketball dribbling drills are good because you can maximize your time and work on both hands simultaneously. Plus, it makes the drill more difficult than if you only did it with one basketball. The goal of basketball drills like this (two ball drills, tennis ball drills, etc.) is to make it more difficult than in a game. That way, when the player gets into a game situation, they can handle the basketball with ease and worry about other things like running the offense or hitting the open cutter.
