Coach Jefferson Mason demonstrates a great and challenging ball handling progression centered around the behind the back dribble.
Using the behind the back move is challenging and is commonly used by more advanced players. However, it's a very effective way to change directions as the ball handler's body often shields the defender from getting a hand on the ball and coming up with a steal.
Check out the full breakdown below and try and do this progression alongside Coach Mason!
The beauty of this ball handling drill/workout (among many others) is that it only requires a ball and not much space at all. This can be done at home in a living room, basement, garage, kitchen, sidewalk, etc.
It's also important to push yourself and don't be afraid of making mistakes! One of the most common mistakes players make when working on ball handling IS being afraid to make mistakes.
At Dr. Dish Basketball we're committed to providing drills, workouts, and progressions that players can work on at home during these challenging times. Even if it means sharing drills without a Dr. Dish, we just want to make sure players have the proper resources to get better every day!
