Holding the Basketball

You begin by shaping each hand as though you are about to grab an object. Hold the ball so that only the pads of your finger touch the ball. Now hold the ball with your fingertips only. This drill will give your fingers a better feel for the basketball and allow you to have more control of the ball as well. Repeat this drill everyday.
