I have been playing basketball for years (I am in my late 20s now) but I have not done any serious training. Occasionally I find that I should take it seriously and start working from the basics regardless of being older. One of the aspects I focus on now is ball handling.
I have seen lots of tutorials, videos of handling drills, which consist of using two balls, using a tennis ball, doing reps of basic moves like crossover, in and out, between the legs, behind the back etc. I try to follow these drills and practice from time to time, then I found that I have a even more fundamental problem: how to do a behind the back crossover properly?
When I try to do these "basic drills", I find that I lose the ball often when I do the behind the back crossover, the ball will hit my butt or my ankle. Does that mean I should bend my shoulder to the back even more? Or should I bend my knee more? Or does it just mean that I need more practicing to get the "feel" of the move?
