Basketball – or any sport for that matter – is not just a matter of playing, winning and losing. It is above and beyond that.
People love these sports; they want to enjoy them.
They don’t just want to see a game between two teams or to be a part of any of those teams to go home with a victory or loss.
They celebrate how different and yet equally amazing and exciting these games are.
They want to enjoy it – because to them, it does not matter whether it is basketball or football.
They love to play ball and do tricks and merrily go to their homes. This is why you’d see the best and brightest of them spinning the ball in front of media and fans.
In this blog post, you’ll learn how to learn to spin the basketball just like pros.

Now Do It
Now you’re prepared to do this. The stage is all set for the spin.
But do know that before you start spinning the ball, there comes a stage where you toss the ball in a swivel.
You choose whether you would use both your hands or do it with one hand.
While it is easier to do it with one hand – it is easy only if you know how to hold the basketball with one hand.
Now holding the ball in your strong hand (with strong finger), toss it in the air and let it land on your finger.
What you do after this is an act of balancing the ball, because it will go right and left, back and forth – you’d have to move your finger accordingly to maintain the balance.
