Two ball basketball dribbling drills can work on both hands at the same time. The goal is to make it so that you don’t have a weak hand and that either hand can make the same move. If you are stronger going to one side in a game, a good defender will try and force you to go to your weak side.
Along with this basketball dribbling drill working on both hands simultaneously, you will be able to work the behind the back move and your overall handles. By adding the second basketball, you will be forced to get out of your comfort zone. Basketball drills like this are great because they promote overtraining, which will help you feel even more comfortable in a game when you only have to account for one basketball.
