Spinning basketballs around the ankles and knees is an effective basketball drill to help improve dribbling skills. Perform this exercise by rotating the basketball in circular motions clockwise and then counterclockwise, making sure to move it around both your ankles and knees in 12 repetitions each direction. Doing this will help increase control of the basketball, allowing you to make better turns without losing your momentum when dribbling or shooting. Regular practice with this simple but effective exercise will give basketball players a competitive edge over their opponents!
