Basketball (Ball Handling Specific) -Riley

Hey guys, I know it's been so long since I've blogged, god it feels weird. haha. Anyways, thought I'd get up one quick blog before the weekend because Justin and I are going to the cabin so we won't be able to blog until Monday but we'll definitely both blog that day. Make sure to check out both posts cause there will be some interesting stuff. Anyways, today I decided to focus specifically on ball handling and how to progress and get better. Being more comfortable with the ball and all. First of all, there is a program I would DEFINITELY love to recommend if anyone is interested. It does cost a bit of $$ though so beware :).

Alright so this guy is Micah Lancaster and he's a professional basketball trainer who works side by side with a guy named Ganon Baker who in my opinion is one of the most versatile basketball players ever, just watch the goddamn videos.. Anyways, this guy has some amazing handles and tips on how to get better overall as a player. If you're serious about your game you should definitely check out his videos, they're great. The link to their website with the program is in that video as well.

ALRIGHT, now lets get down to it, what makes a great dribbler:

First of all, have you ever noticed how all those small guys usually have insane handles, the reason for that is because they are low to the ground which is KEY. You want to be low to the ground when you're dribbling it gives the ball less time to hit the ground and more time for control. Less time for defenders to react. This is probably one of the most important tips when it comes to ball handling. Remember, PRACTICE IS PERFECT. The more you practice your dribbling the better and more natural it will get. Another key when dribbling is that it IS okay to start dribbling with your head down, but you have to have the mentality of progressing and moving to keeping your head up at all times. It gives you room to give head fakes or whatever it takes to beat your defender off the dribble.

I don't really have time at the moment to go into specific drills as I'm leaving in <5 minutes, so I thought I would just link you to this guy's youtube channel it's great and he has some free drills for ball handling CHECK IT OUT:

One last thing, Justin and I will not be blogging again until Monday because we're both going to the cabin (as previously stated) but I promise that Monday we'll have some exciting stuff for you guys. Thanks for being so loyal and have a great weekend everyone :)
