Basketball Dribbling Tips & Tricks : How to Dribble a Basketball at High Speeds

December 4, 2019

This is Travis on behalf of Expert Village
and we want to talk about the speed dribble. The speed dribble is basically that. It’s
like your top end speed when you’re dribbling. You’re going to use that for your open court.
Let’s say you’re on defense and you’re the person that’s out at the top of the key. Your
center or forward gets rebounded. They’re going to kick it out to you. Maybe there’s
nobody in front of you, but yet there’s someone close enough to you and you think you can
beat them to the basket because you have superior foot speed or top end speed. This speed dribble
is running full force down the court top speed. Your dribble is going to be a little bit different
than your low dribble because your low dribble, your hand is on top of the ball. Your hand
is on top of the ball. With the top speed dribble, you’re really going to be almost
to a 45 degree angle pushing the ball out in front of you. Obviously, you have to keep
it in front of you when you’re running faster. What you want to also concentrate on is by
keeping the ball about waist height when you’re doing your speed dribbles. Keep the ball about
waist height and keep it out in front of you. It’s good for you to practice even line drills
using the top speed dribble because you can get quite a few practice ones in. Here’s what
it’s going to look like. We’ll give you a half court run here. Just notice how I’m pushing
the ball out in front of me and the height that I’m keeping it at. Keep your head up
so that you can see the floor. What we’ll do is we’ll start by throwing the ball out,
chasing it down, and just watch the height, the hand, the head, and score.

    did anyone actually laugh out loud at this

  • Reply DeanGl November 20, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Actually while dribbling the ball, you can take as many steps as you want. As long as you don't carry or pick up the ball, it's all good. If you can somehow manage 10-step stutter step by the time it takes you dribble the ball once without carrying, it isn't travelling.

    good info

  • Reply Krytron Cinematics June 10, 2013 at 9:52 am

    To be a basketball player all you need to know is the fundamentals of basketball (layups, dribble, crossovers, etc.) You dont need to have a 30-40 inch vertical and dunk to be a basketball player. It doesnt matter what skin color you are, we are all good at somethings.
