Stealing the Game (Streetball Crew, #2) by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Chris Richards has always looked up to Jax, his older brother and his parents golden child. Lately, though, Jax has been full of surprises. First he dropped out of law school; then he started hanging out with some shifty-looking friends. One day Jax asks Chris to recruit his best middle school teammates for a pick-up basketball game in the park. Chris doesnt think much of it until the wrong team wins and Jax goes ballistic. It turns out that Jax bet on the game, hoping to earn enough money to repay a debt to someone who doesnt forgive easily. While Chris tries to walk a thin tightrope between helping his brother and staying out of trouble, his friend Theo does some behind-the-scenes detective work to learn what Jax has been up to. The day Chris is roped into a police investigation is the day he realizes he made the wrong play.

When you see an NBA player juke a defender out with a lightning fast between-the-legs, behind-the-back dribble, you're watching the skill of someone with many years of practice. If you're an absolute beginner at basketball, even a basic dribble can be intimidating at first. Luckily, with practice and dedication, anyone can become a better ball handler! Bounce the ball off the ground firmly and use your fingertips to catch it as it bounces up before pushing it to the ground again. To dribble as you walk, step so that one of your feet always hits the ground with the ball.

Stealing the ball in basketball is a deceptively simple move. But knowing when to try to for the steal and when to avoid the risk of a foul is difficult. Look for players who are sloppy dribblers, or who expose the ball when they pick it up. Watch players to see how their bodies move before they make certain plays. Some players telegraph what they're about to do. For example, if someone is about to turn to the right and throw the ball to a teammate, she might keep her arms still but turn her shoulders a bit.

One of the most important and underappreciated aspects of the game of basketball is defense. As it has been said, "Offense wins games, but defense wins championships.

In basketball , a steal occurs when a defensive player legally causes a turnover by his positive, aggressive action s. The defender must not touch the offensive player's hands or otherwise a foul is called. Steals are credited to the defensive player who first causes the turnover, even if he does not end up with possession of the live ball. To earn a steal, the defensive player must be the initiator of the action causing the turnover, not just the benefactor. Stealing the ball requires good anticipation, speed and fast reflexes, all common traits of good defenders.
