This ball handling basketball drill will not only work on making a specific move, but it is also going to work on the player’s overall handles and develop their hand quickness. Basketball drills like this are also great because having quick hands helps so many other areas of the game.
This is more of an advanced combo move, but it is great to use at the beginning of a workout or practice to get warmed up and work on skill development simultaneously. It doesn’t require very much space either, so it can be used as a basketball drill to do at home or pretty much anywhere you have a flat hard surface outside.
