How to use dribble in a sentence?

  1. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond:

  3. Dirk Nowitzki:

Just wait until the clock was down and make a move either way, obviously, the entire league knows I usually like going left, so (Randle) was really high side on me. All I had to do was kind of rip through, take a dribble and shoot. It felt good leaving my hands, so I'm glad it went in.
