It is not enough to just dribble the basketball; you need to be able to do it on the move while also being able to change directions quickly. This combination basketball shooting drill is great because it allows you to work on your ball handling and your footwork and change of direction quickness. It is also going to end up in a couple of shots for the player. Basketball drills that can work on more than one skill at a time are great for saving time and maximizing gym time.
