When a defender steps up to guard you or is making a move in transition, you need to execute a basketball move without having to think about it. This combination basketball shooting drill is great because it mixes in all the different dribbling moves together and teaches your mind and muscle memory to do multiple moves without having to hesitate.
Along with working on ball handling, this basketball drill is also going to end up in a couple of shots for the ball handler. That way, you are maximizing your basketball training time and getting the most of the drill.
