INFORMATION ABOUT VIDEOS THAT TEACH PLAYING THE POINT GUARD POSITION ARE LISTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.


"The point guad is, in theory at least, a coach on the court. In an ideal world, he's the leader of the team. He runs the show. If you've got a tough-minded leader at point guard, your chances of having a good team are much improved. If you have talent at the four other positions, but a weak-minded point guard, your team will probably struggle. It's a crucial position."...Jim Calhoun (Connecticut)
 TIP TO POINT GUARDS:  The best point guards are an extension of  their coach onto the playing court. You must be a COACH ON THE FLOOR. To do this, you must learn the game thoroughly, learn WHAT YOUR COACH WANTS DONE with the offense and defense, learn what to do in special situations, and learn the strengths and weaknesses of each of your teammates. Read books on basketball, watch as many games as possible, and meet with your coach regularly to clearly understand exactly what he/she wants done on the court. You may not be the quickest point guard on your team, or the best shooting point guard, but if you have learned to be a COACH ON THE FLOOR, you will be the one your coach calls on to lead his/her team.

TIP NO. 2 TO POINT GUARDS: The number one mental aspect of point guard guard play is UNSELFISHNESS. You must always put the good of the team above your own recognition. You can never worry about the number of points you score, only about the number of points your TEAM scores. The ability to score can be a plus, but it can never be a priority for a point guard.

TIP NO. 3 TO POINT GUARDS:  Point Guards must learn to PENETRATE. They must be able to drive into traffic and then make the decision as to whether to shoot or pass to an open shooter. In the majority of penetration situations, the point guard will pass to an open shooter after he/she has drawn the defense. Practice penetration daily, and expect to make ball-handling mistakes as you progress. As you develop your dribbling and passing ability, you will get better and better at penetration.

TIP NO. 4 TO POINT GUARDS:   Since point guards are a coach on the floor, they must always know  WHO TO GET THE BALL TO. If your small forward has hit two in a row, get the ball to him the next time downcourt.  If the defender guarding your post player has picked up his second foul of the first half, get the ball inside to your post player so he can either score and draw the third foul.

TIP N0 5 TO POINT GUARDS: : Jason Kidd is probably the best point guards to ever play in the NBA. Read what Ashley Fox wrote about him after the Nets 104-97 victory over the Celtics in the first game of the 2002 NBA Eastern Conference Finals: "Kidd finished with 18 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists in 39 minutes, and so EVENLY DISTRIBUTED the basketball that six of his teammates scored in double digits." Many point guards worry about how many points they score; they would be a much better point guard if they worried about how well they distributed the basketball.
TIP NO. 6 TO POINT GUARDS: · Point guard mental skills are more important than physical skills. He/She must have knowledge of the game, confidence, unselfishness, leadership skills, and mental toughness.
TIP NO. 7 TO POINT GUARDS:  A point guard cannot reach full potential without a great deal of self-confidence. The point guard must not just lead the team, but DIRECT the team. This cannot be done without self-confidence. How does a player get this self-confidence? By not only working diligently on all fundamental skills, especially ball-handling and passing, but also by developing knowledge of the game by studying books, watching games and basketball videos, and "talking basketball" with as many coaches as possible. A point guard must really believe in himself/herself when taking the floor.
TIP NO. 8 TO POINT GUARDS: A point guard must show a significant amount of leadership. He must develop his skills and his knowledge of the game so as to earn the respect of his teammates. Even if the point guard is not a captain, he must show the same responsibility on the court as the captain does, if not more! He must have enough confidence to tell other players what to do and to make sure they are in the proper position before initiating the offense.


ELEVEN NECESSARY TOOLS FOR A POINT GUARD

1. A good knowledge of the game and what the coach wants done on the court.
2. Reasonable quickness.
3. Good court vision.
4. Decision making ability.

5. Ability to penetrate left or right and break down the defense.
6. Good shooting ability including from 3-point range and the pull-up medium range jumper.
7. Good ball-handling ability--pass and dribbling.
8. Ability to put defensive pressure on the ball.
9. Mental skills of unselfishness, confidence, and toughness.
10. Voice projection on the floor. His teammates must "hear" him direct the team in a crowded, noisy gym.
11. Leadership skills.
