Basics of Dribbling a Basketball
Dribbling a basketball is an essential part of the game. If you cannot dribble you will not be a very good player. Dribbling is an art form, you have to be creative and make up your moves and combinations. First you have to find your set position. Your feet should be square with your shoulders, your knees should be bent and you should be on balance. Your fingers should be spread apart on the ball so you will have better control over the basketball. Use your fingers to dribble not your palms. If you use your palms it will be very difficult to direct the ball where you want it to go. The height of the ball should not go above your waist. Once you master it at that height you then can practice dribbling lower to the ground. To become a better dribbler try not to look at the ball when you practice. Also it is important to become equally well with both hands.
