>>100538015

What do you mean?
>>
>>100538015
no but i might ask her to haha
shes usually really meek and submissive but sometimes she gets into another mood so ill slip the question
>>
>>100537805
just BARELY it's frustrating. if it's a rubber-crapball i can palm it; if it's a nice, clean leather ball then i can't

i could easily grab the rim by 7th grade and still it took forever to work out how to dunk while cuppin' it

getting the ball all sweaty and then wiping it off with your shirt helps a lot of course. get more grip on it just like a pitcher in baseball

Palming balls give no tactical advantage whatsoever. Also it's not about hand size, but grip technique.
I'm 5'8 (177 cm) with a hand size of 8 (which is extra small as an adult GK) but here I am, palming a football ball easily.

Not everybody in France is white you race obsessed incel. This is not the early 20th or 19th century anymore you retard. You'd knew if you left your mom's basement that we live in a modern world where in first world western countries there are white, Asian, Jewish, Arab, Latin people etc... all over the place.

You are "Australian". You're not even native from that land because your ancestors came from Europe and therefore you have nothing to do here. So why don't you "go back" where you belong If that's what you imply?

That's not how you're supposed to palm a basketball so given the position I assume it's an undersized one. Seems a size smaller than women's basketballs.
>>100539565
>Palming balls give no tactical advantage whatsoever
That's not true. The tighter you can grip the ball, the harder it is to knock it out of your hands. See Kawhi Leonard, a great part of his scoring relies on his ability to split defenders without getting the ball knocked off his hands.

I said in my first post that I have a very small hand for adult GK standards. Size 8 (about 20-21cm wrist to middle finger). So that makes me very difficult to buy my gear unless personalize GK shops. Because most sports shops sell average adult sizes (9,5 10 or 10,5) or kids size (7 max or below). It's hard to find a middle ground in most shops. Average adult GK size is around 10-10,5.
That being said, the thing to have a good hand grip is to have a strong pinky, that will help you to block horizontally the ball with the thumb, then the three central fingers helps you block the ball vertically. It takes times, even more when your hand is smaller but it's all about technique.
You gotta be able to extend your hand to the fullest though.

The smaller hand you have the more you have to put in work but it's doable.
Buy Pic related that will help you with hand grip. Also, don't forget to stretch you hand (for example with the help of a table or a wall, but gradually, without hurting yourself of course) then eventually you take on a football ball, then basket ball.

>>100541414
I'm a GK playing for a mid tier amateur football club in my local town in activity for over 8 years now. Learned about ball grip from my GK sessions with our personal trainers.
I also train youngster GKs from my club (11-13yo) as volunteer so I have to know about training programs/workouts.

Palming makes it easier to dunk mostly. If you can’t stabilize it or hold it vertical then you have to jump an extra 2-3 or so inches to do a two hander or hit back/front rim. Just try dunking without palming and you will see what I mean

Palming a basketball is pretty easy, most anyone can do it if they try. In practice we were all able to do it and I was like 15 at the time. It's not a significant advantage, really.

People who say they can't do it are either people with really REALLLLYYY small hands or the same type of people who bitch about not being able to play barres on guitar and quit after 3 days of failing

>>
>>100547824
True, if you can't palm the ball and attempt a dunk, you really need to hammer the ball down so you have to add the size of a basketball to the distance you have to jump from the floor.

I still think it's kind of defining for picking up your dribble, if you don't need your off-hand to pick up the ball off a drive (and you have a solid enough grip to wind a shot on from this stance), it's much harder for the defense to stop you.

There's a bit of a technique to learn, either you can from scratch because you have huge hands, or you need someone to teach you. >>100541141 is a good example of how to position your fingers, while OP is a fag using an undersized ball.

Playing barre chords is kind of easy but you need not to give up because you''re not happy with the result, palming a ball is the same. It'll drop a lot before you properly get the grip with your fingertips.
