The behind-the-back dribble is a popular move in basketball that can be used to create space from a defender or to change direction quickly. To perform this move, the ball is dribbled behind the back with one hand and caught with the other hand. The dribbler then switches the ball to the other hand and continues dribbling.
To execute the behind-the-back dribble effectively, it is important to maintain control of the ball and keep the dribble low to the ground. It is also important to use the move sparingly and only when necessary, as it can be risky and lead to turnovers if not executed properly.
Practicing the behind-the-back dribble can help improve ball handling skills and add variety to a player’s offensive arsenal. It is important to practice the move at game speed and in game-like situations to develop the muscle memory needed to execute it successfully in a game.
