Weak Hand Development Drills for Basketball

Published on 02/20/2014 by

To be a great player, you can’t have a ‘weak’ hand. You need to be able to effectively pass, dribble and finish around the basket with either hand. Here are some of our favorite weak hand development drills for basketball players. .

    1. you dont need to put the other hand behind your back to do this drill -
    it serves no purpose
    2. the other guy needs to get new shoes LOL

    The problem for me is not the lay ups it's just the dribbling

    I got asked yesterday if I was left handed because I now almost exclusively
    drive left. You can't tell how happy that made me feel. I seem to be even
    more explosive using my left. I just need to work on my finishing. Not very
    confident with my left hand under pressure.

    I remember when I would always go right cause my left hand was weak. Now I
    go left more than I go right. lol. Just practice as much as possible.
