Need some help

What's up guys! So here's a little background information about myself, before I ask my question.

I'm currently 20, and started playing basketball when I was almost 17. So I didn't have years of practice growing up. When I started out, I completely sucked. If people hadn't been nice and helped me after pick-up games, I probably would have given up.
Now, I am a very strong 3 point shooter (I try to keep track of my shots when playing and I usually shoot around 40% from the 3 point line in pickup games)
As I have progressed, so has much of my game. I can dribble with my right hand, but not with my left. And I am a little chubby, and want to be able to get in shape so I can guard anybody I have to.

So what is a training regimen I could do, every day or every other day (Workout, practice shooting, dribbling drills, etc) to make my game become better than it is now. I need a workout regimen, some sort of shooting regimen I can do, and dribbling drills I can do every day or every other day.

When I say I'm chubby, I mean I'm 6 foot, 235 pounds. So I got a few extra pounds on me, which I am currently working on getting off. (I weighed 255 like 3 months ago) So I need a workout regimen to build muscle as well as endurance on the court.

And a dribbling regimen to help me progress my left hand, because right now, if I start dribbling with my left, I probably will lose the ball within a few feet.

I'm just trying to become the best player I can be, and was hoping you guys could help me out! Thanks!

Play basketball as much as possible and do cardio. Worry about the axillary stuff when the game starts to get easier.

Re: Need some help

Go jogging with a tennis ball and only dribble with your left hand. Also, make a visor that blocks your vision below your eyes. I used cardboard and shoestring for that. Go for two mile runs twice a day and dribble until you just cant stand dribbling anymore and just carry the ball. Everyday you'll be able to dribble farther out with the ball.
