Mechanics of Dribbling

When dribbling the basketball: As you dribble the basketball:
Imagine your hand acting like a mechanical suction cup. It releases the basketball as you push it down to the floor. You then lower your hand (cupped shape) toward the basketball rebounding from the floor, which suck it up. When the basketball touches your hand, raise your forearm slightly to absorb the rebounding pressure, then release and push the basketball to the floor again. Repeat the sequence over and over again until it becomes automatic where you can execute it without physically looking at the basketball.

In the advance stage of stationary dribbling, you will use your peripheral vision coupled with the dribbling sound to keep tub of the basketball location.
