Bob Hurley - dribble routine - quick dribble at mid-thigh, inside-out twice up the sideline, spin at halfcourt, crossover to left hand, two pullback dribbles at the edge of the circle, crossover, "Magic Johnson" at the far edge of the circle (get sideways, dribbling with the ball on the right hip), fake a spin, go by, behind the back at the sideline, left-to-right between the legs at the elbow, finish. Go two minutes then switch sides.


A simplified version with two groups at each basket.

1 dribbles out with his right hand, spin dribbles at halfcourt, goes behind his back from right to left hand at the centre circle, and attacks the basket for a layup or shot.


- use a hesitation dribble out to halfcourt
- add back parts of the chill drill, e.g., a pullback dribble at the centre circle.
