Basketball IQ??

Ok guys, I'm always hearing about 'Basketball IQ', but I have no idea what's that, and no-one talks about that in my league. Can someone please tell me what is it??

    Basketball IQ is a term to describe your basketball intelligence.  A player with a high basketball IQ is usually well positioned on defense, makes smart passes, takes uncontested shots, talks to his or her teammates, don't turn the ball over, forces players to their weaknesses.


    You develop basketball IQ by learning from your coaches, communicating with your teammates, reading about basketball, practicing basketball, watching film, and talking to other players.  Every player (even Lebron/Kobe) continue to try to improve their basketball IQ.

  is a great place to learn more about basketball, and hopefully develop your basketball IQ.  (Check out the "School of Hoops" tab).

    Agree with above. To give you a quick definition Basketball IQ is basically your knowledge of the game. Defenses, offensive systems, and other things like that.

    I agree as well. People who have great basketball IQ usually always know the right play to make at the right time, and have a good understanding of the ins and outs of the game
