Behind the Back Dribble

Behind the Back Dribble:
A basic move in which the ballhandler simply bounces the ball behind the back to the opposite hand, but note that the ball is not intended to go around the body as in the basic ' wraparound '.

This basketball  (external link) move is used in order to avoid an easy strip, to 'stall', or to 'pick.' It can be used to avoid an easy strip as to be an alternative to bounce the ball in front of you for a tricky crossover.

To stall means to overlook what can be setup on the court while still maintaining control over the ball. A pick is virtually the same as a stall but a pick is continuous; meaning that the ball is bounced back and forth behind the back - a pick may also be performed between the legs.

The best choice as to use this move would be in the case of unavalibility to outrun your defender and/or drive the ball closer to the hoop due to the lack of space between the ballhandler and defender.
