Spinning the Ball on Your Finger
One of the classic basketball tricks is spinning the ball on your fingers. Below are instructions and a video where Joe demonstrates the best way to perform the trick.
There are 4 steps:
- Spin the ball clockwise with your right hand so that it spins on a vertical axis.
- Catch the ball using your middle finger, make the ball land directly on top.
- Balance the ball on your finger, keep your finger underneath.
- Keep the spin alive by lightly flicking it with your free hand.
As with all tricks, this takes time and patience. It may take you a few hundred tries before you get the ball to land correctly on your finger.
