Ok I currently have a basketball and a tennis ball. I saw some drills that includes a tennis ball wherein they bounce it and they snatch it mid air while doing a dribbling move.

Is this drill really effective? If yes, how do I do it? Do I run the court while dribbling both basketball and a tennis ball? Or stationary? I have no idea.

If no, are there any other dribbling drills that mainly improves your speed and explosive movements. I'm not into fancy moves.

Thanks.

There are definitely some great YouTube videos that deal with tennis balls and dribbling, just do a search on YouTube. You can work drills by yourself or with a partner. The tennis ball drills aren't really meant for improving speed or explosiveness, they're more designed to help your coordination and agility.

I would say the same for finding speed and explosiveness dribbling drills. Not trying to pawn you off on YouTube, but trust me, there's a ton of great videos that can give you practical workouts. You just need to check out a few and decide which ones work for you.

Jeff might have a few in his explosive dribbling drill bag.

Ohhh thanks. I remember someone calling those tennis ball drills as a "joke" (2 years ago), but turns out he's the joke. Thanks, I'll try it out maybe this weekend. (I can't train everyday these days)

I wouldn't make tennis ball drills a major part of your routine, but it definitely can help improve your focus and coordination.
