Spending as much time as you can in the gym will be the key to improving your all-round skills. You should first work on your ball handling skills, your passing with a partner and your shooting.

Here are some good tips to be a great basketball player- pretend like your shooting and throw the basketball against the wall and it comes back really fast so it gives you hand eye cordination. Run to different walls back and forth. And just running laps around the gym.

Basketball is a game highly dependent on hand-eye coordination and muscle memory, so repetitive practice drills are essential. Moreover, fitness plays a key role and must be developed through time.

As you know, dribbling is a fundamental which every basketball player needs to be able to perform. A good drill that I was taught is to practice dribbling tennis balls. Start with one ball and then graduate to two balls (one in each hand).

Go out and practice whatever skills you feel are your weakest. If you feel that you need work on dribbling, go out with just a basketball and practice dribbling with both hands. Once you feel comfortable, work on crossing the ball over from right to left and left to right.

One of the best ways to improve your basketball skills is to work on your ball handling skills. A simple exercise it to walk around dribbling the basketball, allowing you to get more confident in bringing the ball up.
