Always remember to work on your weak hand and to dribble with your head up (very important) at game speed. Some basic stuff you can do is to put your basketball or basketballs in plastic shopping bags (tie them so they stay around the ball), it makes gripping them really hard but is very effective for getting you better at gripping the ball. 2 ...
Change of pace - Ability to go from a slow dribble to a fast dribble which will help beat defenders as well as increase change of direction. In addition having a quick last dribble allows you to get your shot off quicker. Use of hips - Ability to go from a standing up stance to dropping the hips down (when in attack mode).
