This basketball dribbling drill is going to work on a counter move. If you make a between the legs dribble move and the defender cuts you off, you need to be able to make a counter move. This will make the defender pay for jumping too far to one side to cut you off. You are going to use the defender’s gamble against themselves.
For this two ball basketball dribbling drill, you will work on the double between the legs dribbling move. Adding the extra basketball to the move will make this one of the more advanced basketball drills for ball handling. This drill is also going to work on improving both hands at the same time. The extra basketball will also make you have to complete the move quicker than you normally would.
