Uploaded by expertvillage on 02.02.2008

Now we're going to talk about the scissor dribble as a warm up. What we want to do,
whether you're right of left handed, you're going to use both your hands. Obviously, the
best thing to do is become ambidextrous, meaning using your right and left hand equally so
that you don't have a weakness. The scissor dribble is just going to be between the legs.
What we're going to do is we're going to alternate right to left, right to left, and we're keeping
our feet about shoulder width apart. Maybe a little bit further. Wherever you're comfortable
with, but don't keep them close. That's one thing you don't want to do. I'll show you
the scissor dribble from the front and then also from the side. Alternating our feet forward.
Left, right, left, right. Here's the side shot. There's your scissor dribble.
