There are certain situations that you want to stay out of when you are handling the basketball. For example, if you are coming off of a ball screen and see that the ball screen defender is going to trap or hedge out hard, you don't want to get caught in the trap, or if you are bringing the ball up the floor and you see that the defense is coming to trap you. To avoid the trap you need to quickly be able to retreat dribble, and then attack at a different angle to get by the defender. The push behind the back basketball dribble drill is going to help you work on retreat dribbling out of a trap situation, and also using a behind the back move.
The dribble must be quick, cover space, and you must be under control so that you can change direction quickly if you need to as well. Keep your eyes up the whole time as well so that you can see the floor and see open teammates. This basketball drill is a must for players that handle the basketball a lot during the course of a game.
