A third way to dribbling while watching TV is to sit on your butt, spread your legs a little, and dribble between your legs. This is one of my favorite drills because there’s a lot you can do with it. Try these different dribbles and make it into a routine. Dribble with both hands, then both thumbs, next both index fingers, and keep moving through all your fingers. Go as fast as you can! Once you get good at that, try to dribble with one finger at a time. When your finger gets tired, switch to the other finger on the other hand. Again, go as fast as you can!
Go ninja and karate chop the ball with both hands, use your knuckles, or use your fists to pound the ball. Try to get so fast at the two hand dribbles that it sounds like a typewriter or a drum in a marching band. Ask your parents before you start dribbling in the house!
As a side note, if anyone ever makes fun of you for dribbling or having a basketball with you, don’t worry about it. Remember you’re the one who wants to be in the newspaper. You’re the one who wants to play college ball on a scholarship. Plus, soon enough when you have sick handles in the game, they won’t be making jokes any longer.
