Ok....back to the Anaconda dribble. Another thought has crossed my mind recently. Although I can do a solid 2.25 foot dribble, I was wondering whether it was better in your opinion to have a more 'open' grip or a tighter grip (which would be similar to the card spring catching grip.) That is, an open grip = extending the fingers more, tighter grip = not as extended. What do you all think? EDIT: This thread has been bumped so many times for flaming. I think it should be stickied. Jeteye: I am a musician myself.
