Im 5'10, not in highschool yet, and I play power forward/center on my team. Im strong but not the strongest guy on the court. Past few games ive been playing guard and loving it. The season ended so theres not much oppurtunities for me to practice being a guard during games. I have a pretty good mid range jumper but cant rly shoot the 3. Im a good ball handler but have to work on my cross over and off hand dribbling. any tips on how I could become a better guard (point guard preferably)?
If your not a fantastic three shooter,i wouldnt suggest playing guard, but i think youd be a Perfeft Small Forward, they usually shoot mid rangers, have good ball handling, and arent the strongest, but still strong.
But if you wanna play guard thats fine. I would practice on your speed, big time, Run suicide drills in your back yar, or whatever court you're near.
Also shoot a lot of threes, force yourselfto make like 100 a day, and that will improve it big time. Ball handeling is really the only thing i cant help you with, because i play Center.
Good Luck man and i hope you can become a nice guard.
im really fast so i dont have to worry about speed...maybe explosiveness but thats it. i play point guard when i play pick up games and stuff and its just natural but yea now that i think about it, small forward would be a good position for me. thanks ryan
