What is the proper way to receive the ball in half court?

Receiving the Ball In the Half Court

You begin by placing a chair on one side of the half court line and placing a basketball on top of the chair. Place a chair on the other side of the half court line. Start at the side line, run and grab the ball from the chair and run to the other sideline. Now turn around and run to the other chair and place the ball on top of it and continue running to the other sideline. Grab the ball with your fingertips. Reverse directions and repeat the drill for 10 minutes.
