I am a post player who constantly works on my handles and when i play against people a little less taller than me they always steal it and its difficult to get by defenders at times
Keep the ball and your body low to the ground. Use your off hand to help protect the ball. Also, use your bigger body to help shield smaller defenders. Leverage your size here.
To be an efficient ball handler it takes time and thought filled repetition. There are lots of good drills and workouts out there to help you improve on this.
If you're looking for a routine, we design customized workouts for our players. Feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Good luck and keep working hard.

If you're a post player I'm guessing you're playing with your back to the basket. Get low and get physical with a smaller defender, hold him off with your non-dribbling hand. If he over-commits too much to either side of you take advantage. As long as you keep your body against his he shouldn't be able to get around you and steal the ball, just dribble the ball where he cant reach it.
And seriously you can practice dribbling just my walking around dribbling a basketball. Get used to the feel and you'll be able to control it how you like. How that helps man.
WAT U NEED TO DO IS GET LOW AND BANG DOWN THERE IN THE PAINT. DONT BE SCARED. THEN GO UP STRONG AND GET THE FOUL OR MAKE THE SHOT OR KICK IT OUT TO A GUARD IF THEY DOUBLE TEAM U.
make sure you dribble low
I used to use the Power Dribble. It helps you keep it low, close and build a more powerful dribble. Try it out, i beleive the info and site is just www.powerdribble.com
