Walking Between the Legs Behind the Back Dribbling Drill
One of my favorite players to watch in the game is Jamal Crawford. It seems like he is able to pause for an unlimited amount of time before make a sharp change of direction move to make the defender look silly. It isn’t that he is that much faster, quicker, or more athletic than anyone else, it is simply because he has mastered the ability to change speeds, sell a move, and read the defender.
This dribbling drill is going to really focus on being able to sell your move and change up your speeds. The specific move that is being worked on is the between the legs behind the back combo move, but the drill is great because it really allows the player to work on these other areas of ball handling as well.
Drill Name: Walking Between the Legs Behind the Back Dribbling Drill
Similar Drills: Walking Between the Legs Crossover Dribbling Drill
Drill Goal: Work on selling the between the legs behind the back move and really changing up speeds.
Equipment Needed: 1 basketball.
Tips: Stay low in a low athletic stance the whole time. Don’t be a robot with your movements, really look to pause, sell your move, and change up speeds as you go through the drill. Keep your eyes up as you do the drill and also use your eyes to sell the move.
Directions: The player is going to start on the baseline with a basketball. The player will take a stationary dribble (the only one during the drill), pause, and then make an explosive between the legs behind the back combo move leading themselves forward with the move. Without taking any stationary dribbles in between, the player is going to pause again and then execute the same move. Continue this pattern all the way to the free throw line and then retreat dribble back to the baseline. Repeat the same action, but this time starting with your other hand.
