"I look at it in another way. I think there is a huge difference between a point guard in youth (up till about 16 years old) and older. Not only because they can stop growing or suddenly grow very fast and maybe have to play another position, but…"

"From Middle School through College, at least, the game is won by the guards.  In the NBA, probably more about the bigger players.  So, in MS thru College, the PG must be able to accomplish certain tasks.  PG is very much a…"

"Yeah, that's what they said about a 6' 9" PG who played for Michigan State called Earvin Johnson. He turned out OK, but it took more than few years for the next guy to have those same skills and that size. The Magics and the Lebrons…"

"As a coach, I believe that the Point Guard is the most important position on the floor. Most successful teams on every level has a pg who is good at doing everything good. The pg has to be smart, has to know how to orchestrate, handle, pass, shoot,…"

Steve Watkins replied to jon walker's discussion What are the specific things you look for in POINT GUARD!
"In my mind, the point guard attrributes fall into three categories: physical, mental, and character Physical: A point guard neads to get into the lane and wreak havoc on the defense. In order to do that, he needs to be quick and he kneeds a good…"

Coach Washington replied to jon walker's discussion What are the specific things you look for in POINT GUARD!
"I want my point guard to know the plays for one and know when to get in the proper offensive set. The pg does not have to be very athletic, but can get by by being a good decision maker. I love the throwback pg, tough as nails and loves to dish the…"

Kathleen Carey replied to jon walker's discussion What are the specific things you look for in POINT GUARD!
"The most important thing I look for in a PG is the ability to THINK! Think about offense/ ball movement/ when to dribble-when not and certainly when to release and get back on defense. The athleticism of players has evolved so today we see bigger…"

Karl Sorby replied to jon walker's discussion What are the specific things you look for in POINT GUARD!
