Two ball basketball dribbling drills are great for improving ball handling because they work a few different things simultaneously. First, it works on your weak hand as much as your strong hand. This will be key for players who tend to always transfer the ball to their strong hand when they get uncomfortable.
Next, it makes the basketball dribbling drill more difficult than it normally would be with only one ball, which will prepare you better for gameplay. This basketball drill will work on the double between the legs dribble move, which will allow you to better master the move.
