There is truth to it. I played basketball through college, and one summer in high school, I had a job that improved my grip strength a lot and I didn't pick up a basketball for most of that summer. When I picked up a ball and started playing again, I had incredible control of the ball because of my improved grip strength. I can't even describe how good the ball felt in my hands with everything from dribbling, to passing, to shooting. It made a huge difference. I distinctly remember dribbling up the court on a fast break and making a great pass and thinking in the moment how much control I felt I had and how strong my fingers felt controlling the ball.

In other words, you carried, crab dribbled, and double-dribbled better

The Greatest, next to Bill Russell. Wish Russell and Chamberlain could have been in Space Jam. That would have been Monstrous.
