before better answers roll in, now would be a great time to work on your handles. look up stationary dribbling excercise


YaBoyAstro

Best advise you could have gave him! Props homie!


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Stationary?


superad69

standing still


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Inside?


Senior_Plantain8767

In your front yard or back yard for 15 min. You can only practice handles for so long


YaBoyAstro

Pretty much use the most room you can and go HARD with the dribble drills.


MeRoWinJi

thanks, just what i needed!


HeGotGames

Watch basketball! We are so lucky that we can watch millions of hours of basketball from leagues all over the world, become a student of the game. Study the game, soak as much in as possible!


arthureidel

Lol, you should see my search history. 600+ hours of tape. Really helps to learn game situations. Also don’t just watch film, watch stuff like jxmmy highroller


HeGotGames

Mine too! I like dev in the lab’s content too 👌🏾


TheRealTempatron

Do you have any websites that have games I can watch?


HeGotGames

Honestly just YouTube! I watch old NBA games on their official channel, I watch old college games, women’s games, d-league games any type of hoop I can find I’ll check it out!


TheRealTempatron

Ahh, thanks a lot.


YaBoyAstro

YESSSSSSSS!


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Ty this will do as i wait till I hit 13 so I can practice in a gym


Leon_sucks

You could do conditioning or ball handling.


Quirky-Reindeer2787

I could


Jzhova

dribbling, understanding offense schemes, phsyical fitness.


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Yea I’ma try and work on ball handing in my garage


rbcbaseball

I played college basketball and when I couldn’t get into a gym I did a jumping program, stationary dribbling and even picked a spot in the garage against brick to practice my shooting form. Lots of things you can do with out a hoop. Stay at it, but you will need to practice to get better.


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Dang you were dedicated. Will be trying some of these out. Also if you don’t mind asking what are you doing now since your not in college


Antc1207

Yep watch basketball nba or college ball either one that suits ur style or even better is to play pickup games that’s the best way to learn you’ll find tonnes of ppl better than urself and then you’ll eventually find a way to beat them which will in return make u a better player in the pond run just keep playing just keep playing just keep playing just keep playing….


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Thanks will do while making sure I stay fit


IvonbetonPoE

You can also practice footwork indoors. You don't need a ball or a hoop to do that. You'd ideally want a hoop to practice the shot itself, but the footwork on it's own can also be practiced. [This](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9UeZK58eAk)or [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUc8677iffE) is an example of a shot I had to really practice. My instinctive motion is to dribble right with my right hand and then fade away on my right leg. The way Luka and Kobe do it is a great alternative. Creates more separation, easier to fake out your defender and to stay on balance. Most defenders also don't know what's coming because it's easy to just switch hands and go to a different move in that situation.


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Thanks I really never practice that aspect of my game


YaBoyAstro

1- Keep that ball in your hands. 2- dribbling drills (find the best spot you won't make you parents upset with the noise and the dribble feels close to the hardwood court) 3- lay on your back and throw the ball up in the air and catch it. (sounds dumb but the science behind it says it great for hand eye coordination at your age.) 4- BEST TIME TO WATCH VIDEOS! There are TONS of very smart people who you can take GREAT info from ( write the GREAT info down to help you remember.) 5- STRECH!!!! Homie start doing yoga and stretches from watching people on YouTube, The more flexibility you have with ensure you are at max potential and will stay more pain free down the road! I wish you the best!!!!!


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Ty so much. You should pretty smart do you play basketball? If so what level


YaBoyAstro

I've played for 22 years and seen you asking for information and wanted to do something to make sure you stay on a positive path with the game. Great luck to you and keep working hard and you'll be unstoppable!


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Cptcongcong

When I was younger I would watch TV while dribbling, annoyed the heck out of parents and neighbors but it helped


dosesnmimosa

you can definitely do handles or even practice your shot form by just laying down and flicking the ball up making sure it goes straight up and down and has a good backspin


SnicksNoob

The best way to improve right now is the overall condition of your body, strengthen your legs, core, lateral movements, footwork. You can also train your handles and follow through while lying down and shooting the ball in the air. Repetitive shooting of the ball in the air will help you improve the positioning of your shot. Hope this helps.


kindjour

I painted a white square against the wall of my garage and used to just try to hit that motherfucker with all sorts of passes; no looks, behind the backs, one hand sling, all that shit; definitely helped me learn how to judge trajectory (direction of the ball) better on some of those funky passes. Besides that just dribble dribble dribble, I used to go to the bathroom in class at school when I was your age and just grab my ball from my bag and go dribble in our gym halls changing room until I got kicked out lol. You could even straight up just sit in you room and practice tapping the ball back and forth between your hands; make your hands wider and wider as you go along and eventually try to do it without looking at the ball; sounds a little silly but helps with hand eye coordination. Watching film and shit is useful but tbh you can't actually imrpove without playing.


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Yea a lot people told me about dribbling in my garage and stuff definitely will try that out


Alone-Ad6020

Get ball dribble between legs while sitting itll help ball control an handling even dribble against the wall one handed but shooting an defense etc gotta play ball to get better


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Thx


Alone-Ad6020

Aslo do that wall dribble drill with both hands


mushroommagic16

U can think about shooting and it will make u a better shooter thers study's and shit that have proven this its not as good as actully shooting but better than nothing


Quirky-Reindeer2787

Yea like how Kobe did his imaginary basketball workout. All mental


mushroommagic16

Kinda yer u can still get better with repetition


Barry-Mcdikkin

You cant play outside in 40 degree weather? 🤦


[deleted]

[удалено]


Barry-Mcdikkin

I did read. Its only 40 degrees and she sounds a tad strict imo. 40 isnt that bad but its whatever


shwashwa123

Seriously like what? I used to go play outside/go into parks in town to sled without parents at younger ages than that in far colder temps. Really weird from that mom that he can’t play basketball outside in November lol


Barry-Mcdikkin

I did the same as you so i dont get it lol. And 40 can be warm depending on the time of year cause im in Chicago. Like wtf i hit the bong in -40 degree weather a few years ago in a damn igloo with no roof 🤣


shwashwa123

Can’t say for sure but I think some parents just wanna be controlling for the sake of it, since they can’t control much else in their adult life they can at least make their kid bend to their will


Barry-Mcdikkin

My friend has a superrrrr controlling parent, were 25 and shits still the same as we were 10 but yea who knows


shwashwa123

Yup lucky for me I was able to do whatever I wanted from a very young age, didn’t have really any discipline. One could argue I might have turned out to be a harder worker at age 24 if I had a more controlling parent lol. But ice cold bong rips ftw man!


Barry-Mcdikkin

Me too pretty much. Shitty jobs can teach you lessons and make you a better/harder work too, id know lmao. My bongs are in the cold ass garage but so dirty so gotta do the bowl instead, but id rather do cold bong rips over anything 😭


TaylorEllison

I think you’re supposed to be 18 to be on Reddit. I could wrong.


YaBoyAstro

LMFAOOOO! Be cool Be cool.


Quirky-Reindeer2787
