Best NBA Point Guards
A point guard is a basketball team's on-court leader, who controls the flow of a game. Kidzworld takes a look at what it takes to be a top point guard in the NBA.
The Point Guard - Team LeaderA point guard's job in the NBA, WNBA or any other basketball league is to be a team's on-court leader and control the flow of his team's offence. A point guard brings the ball upcourt and directs the offence to get the ball to other teammates who are in the best position to score. A point guard needs to decide when to run a fast-break and when to slow down and run a half-court offence. A good point-guard can completely turn a team around, as Jason Kidd did when he joined the New Jersey Nets in 2001. In 2004, point guard Steve Nash's leadership at the point guard position has helped turn the Phoenix Suns into one of the most exciting teams in the NBA.
NBA Point Guards - Quick Hands, Quick WitsA team's point guard is usually smaller, quick and the team's best ball handler. He must be able to make split-second descisions to dump the basketball to an open teammate who has a hot hand or look for an opening to take the ball to the hoop himself. A good point guard in the NBA should have a low assist to turnover ratio, which means he sets up a teammate for a basket a lot more than he loses the ball or has one of his passes picked off.
