How does being left handed benefit you in basketball?

I am left handed and was told that it would help me with the game of basketball.

Being left handed in basketball lets you catch your opponent off guard by dribbling to the left of him. Most right handed players go to the right.

The biggest advantage is defenders guarding you as if you were right handed, pushing you left. If they remember, defense against lefthanders is weaker because of less use.

it will be more difficult to defend the shooter then. it will be more unnatural than right handers. you normally would not see lefties play basketball. you could use your hand to protect the ball from being blocked by the defender.
