Dribbling the ball the right way needs to be done. When dribbling the basketball, use your fingertips rather than the palm of your hand. You’ll have a lot more control over the ball this way. Avoid dribbling in front of you and only dribble to the sides of your body. Keep your head up and do not look at the ground.

Look forward and hold your head up while you dribble the ball. If you have to look at the ball while dribbling, that means you need to practice more. Take the basketball around off-court wherever you are. Try dribbling even when walking to a store. If you’re trying to look at the ball then you’re not concentrating on what’s going on down the court.

To improve your game, concentrate on your strong points. Your skills may not turn you into the star player, but knowing how to make the most of your skills will make you a more valuable player. Knowing what you excel at and then practicing that can help you become perfect at it!
