Basketball

Basketball

Point after point, basketball is the quickest-scoring game. Points can rack up in a second, and you can move from losing to winning within the Quarter. Most importantly, there is a place for everyone in basketball. Basketball players rely on their ability to run up and down the court, they rely on their teammates for help, and they always keep their head on a swivel. They need to be able to trust in their teammates and communicate with each other.

The Guide To Basic Basketball 

Point Guard- Normally the shortest player and best ball handler/passer. Their position is meant to lead their teams in assists and create shots for everyone around them. They direct the plays, have good pacing, and have a high basketball IQ.

Shooting Guard- Often referred to as a wing, the player needs to know position tactics. Their shooting skills are extremely valuable, and they need to know how to get into open space to create shots.

Small Forward- They are the most versatile position. They can do just about everything, from scoring, rebounding, handling the ball, passing, and if they have the skill, also defending. They need to be quick and strong, being good long-range shorts and accurate foul shooting.

Power Forward- This person is the team’s most powerful and dependable scorer. They need to be able to score close to the basket, along with jump shots. They need to be skilled in offense and defense, but not as much as a small forward. They normally have good footwork and can draw players into bad shots.

Center- This position is reserved for the tallest player, who gains points from near-the-basket shots. Their known to be skilled at rebounds, and contesting shots. Normally their goals are trying to create possession and take opportunities to score.
