How to Spin a Basketball on Your Finger | Basketball


All right, guys. This is the part we know I love the most,
and these are the tricks. Alright? I’m going to show you the proper way to spin
a ball on your finger. Okay? Now, in order to spin a ball on your finger,
the first thing you’re going to need are some fingers. Alright? Now, normally I go with my strong hand, which
for me is my right hand, and I want to use my pointing finger. Alright? Now, I take my pointing finger, and the object
here is to balance the ball on my finger. All right, balance the ball on my finger. Now, how are we going to do that? Alright? Now science has this thing, you know you can
explain it scientifically, but the first thing you want to do is, you want to make sure you
get a nice spin on the ball. So first thing you’ve got to practice is how
to spin the ball. Watch me. All I want to do is practice getting a nice
spin on the ball. Now, as you become better, you want to try
and get your finger underneath the ball. Try to time it to get your finger underneath
the ball. Get a nice spin underneath the ball. Now, if your spin is weak, you’re not going
to be able to balance that ball on your finger. So the first thing you’ve got to do, practice
getting the spin on the ball, on your finger. Now for me, I like to use one hand. Get a nice spin. Put the ball on my finger. Some people, they use two hands. Get a nice spin. Put the ball on their finger. So you want to make sure, like I said, work
on your spin, then after that it’s all about balance, balance, balance. And that is how you spin the ball on your
finger.

  1. I am lefthanded but I throw baseballs and shoot basketball with my right hand. I box, do martial arts, play football, write, eat, skate, wank, all like a leftie. It's interesting.

  2. "to do this we will need some fingers right? yeah" please… please tell me, HOW ARE YOU SO GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. In the years of trying to this off and on. I have NEVER been able to even make the ball spin evenly like in every tutorial. You know how some people just can't clap in time to the beat? I have no rhythm when it comes to spinning the ball………..but strangely enough I can play basketball better than most people. My body is so random……..I also have stubby fingers………so maybe that does not help

  4. It took me 2 weeks to learn this and It was kinda difficult to shoe all the process of learning it but I have showed as much as I can

  5. I have never been able to do this despite playing basketball for years. My brother can do it in his sleep and does not even play basketball. Trust me if you can't do this within a short period of time , you never will be able to. A half court short is actually easier for me.
