       dribbling skills

           Dribbling skills are essential in a basketball game because it can increase your level of confidence. When I was in the seventh grade, I was point guard and my job was to dribble the ball up the court. Unfortunately, by the end of the game, I had 10 turnovers. I then realized that I needed to practice my dribbling skills, so I did. Day in and day out, I would dribble the ball until it became second nature to me. Now, I am more confident dribbling up the court, no matter how intimidating the opponent is. Athletes don’t just become phenomenal ball-handlers like Derrick Rose or Chris Paul; they have to put in the effort and practice everyday. You can try different dribbling skills that will help you. If you go to the YouTube video at the bottom of this post you will see the different kinds of dribbling drills in order to improve your hand eye coordination. During practice, you will always want to try new dribbling moves before you put them to the test in any game. The last thing you want is your coach to get mad at you for trying some outrageous dribble and turning the ball over.

In the movie The Guru of Go, the character named Hank was a fantastic basketball player who died because of heart complications. Before he died, he was the best overall player in the league. He had the best dribbling skills, best shooter, etc. The reason for why he was so good was because he practiced everyday to have the best dribbling skills. Hank gave the best effort and never gave up.
