Hi my name is Oz Pineda, I'm a professional basketball coach here in Miami, Florida. In this clip we are going to show you some easy basketball tricks. We are going to work on stationary ball handling. The first thing we are going to do is we are going to pound two balls at the same time. Keep it low, after a few seconds we will alternate our dribbles, keeping our head up. This also although it is fun, and it is easy, and keeps you entertained it works on your ball handling. Next thing we will do, give the ball to Jeff, is now we will have a little bit of fun with it. Alright, we will have a little bit of fun. We will cross over, keep the ball low, and then we will go to one ball only, and we will do what we call a figure eight. Now we will keep it in front of us and we will do what is called a typewriter. Quick dribbles, typewriter, with our fingertips. The next thing we will do will be stationary we will go between our legs alternating stationary between our legs. Keeping our head up, and maybe we will add some scissor action where we are alternating where the legs are moving. Let's go back to the typewriter speed dribble we are going to break it down piece by piece. The ball will be on the ground low, your knees will be bent. We want to use our fingertips, and we want to go alternating our fingertips start slowly, and progressively get faster. We want to have our head up, we don't want to stay down with the ball. You notice Felipe has his fingertips on the ball, he doesn't have his hand he keeps it low. And then it is called typewriter, because it has a typewriter sound to it. You can do these dribbles right in your front yard or in your backyard using your basketball court for these types of dribbles. Again thank you for watching, I'm Oz Pineda.
