These are drills that will help you build the foundational skills needed to become an elite player.

Most players overlook the fundamental basketball drills as being “too easy” and want to jump straight to the advanced basketball drills.

It’s extremely important to master the basics before you try to work on the advanced.

Now if you're an advanced player or you think you're an advanced player, don't disregard this video because a lot of times advanced players can really use the fundamentals.

When you're training your skills, it's kinda like you're building a house, right?

You have to have the foundation, the foundational skills, down before we can become an advanced player, before you can become an elite player.

Think about a big house, you can have the biggest house ever, but if it's on a weak foundation, the house is gonna fall over.

But once you have that good foundation, then your potential is limitless.

So in this video today, we are gonna be focusing on ten drills.

These ten basketball drills are gonna help you with your finishing, your scoring, your dribbling, your defense.
