    Nick, I can't thank you enough for spending the effort to put up these videos. They've helped me considerably in returning some lost form from my 25 year hiatus from B-ball. Over 40 league, here I come. Cheers.

    I have the worst handles on my basketball team, but the best accuracy from a distance. This gives me trouble because I can make almost any shot, but during the game I cannot get myself open to take the shot. I was just wondering how many days it would take of doing this for me to start noticing some improvement. I have a game every Saturday, so I would love to find a daily workout to quickly improve my dribbling. If this one doesn't work fast enough for my needs, do you have a recommendations of workouts for me to do? Thanks in advance!

  • MightyJ.E1999

    I'm thinking about doing this everyday in sets of 3-4 to have maximum confidence and training in my handle. Would doing these drills with the plastic bag over the ball be beneficial? And also, how long would it take to see results? How would I know it's working? What does this work on
