Being a good ball handler is not all about being able to break someone’s ankles. It is about handling the basketball and seeing the floor to find open teammates and make the right basketball play. Two ball basketball dribbling drills are great at developing your handles and making it so that you don’t have to think about dribbling and can focus on reading the defense.
This basketball drill is going to combine working on handling two basketballs at the same time, and then coming into a shot off the dribble. It will teach players to be skilled at handling the basketball and being able to shoot.
