This basketball drill will work on the player’s ability to move up the floor at a high speed and then make a dribble move without having to slow down. It is great for simulating transition and attacking a defender that is out in front and already set on defense. To add to the difficulty of this ball handling basketball drill, though, you will add a second basketball. The idea behind adding a second ball is that if a player can do a move with two basketballs in a drill, then they should be able to comfortably execute the move in a game situation with only one basketball.
Two ball basketball dribbling drills are also great for eliminating a player’s weak hand. It does this so well because both hands must dribble a basketball the entire time, and the player doesn’t have the option of switching the basketball over to their strong hand once they get in trouble.
