Words of wisdom for point guards (presented by Steve Nash at the Nike Point Guard Academy)
“You should always want your coach to be critical. It gives you an opportunity to learn and to overcome adversity.”
“You maximize your potential by being humble develop a work ethic, strive to be a good person, and to be the best teammate you can be.”
“Use your scoring ability to be a better passer, and your passing skills to become a better scorer.”
“You can’t be a point guard who gets into the lane and always passes. Capitalize on the real estate you have gained.”
“Point Guard must be able to pass with both hands equally off the dribble.”
‘”I am always thinking how can I get myself better.”
“On the fast break, after 2 or 3 hard dribbles you should see the whole floor and know where all your teammates are.”
These ideas from Steve Nash were sent to me by Coach Eric Musselman
The video below was contributed by Mason Waters. Mason is a college student and aspiring basketball coach.
The video is 11 minutes long. I know that most guards will not be able to make all of the moves, but I hope you can find an idea or two that will help your guards play better.
Please make sure that your sound is on.
