How to become a good point guard. Point guards are most well-known for their passes, their distribution of the ball, and their ball handling skills. So, becoming a good point guard, you definitely want to make sure you're taking care of the ball. And you want to make sure you're handing the ball over to your teammates in an efficient and adequate manner. So, you definitely want to work on your dribbling skills. You want to make sure your ball handle is efficient, 'cause you might have to go up against opponents, you might have to know how to cross the ball over. And you want to make sure your passing is efficient, so you want to practice passing all the time. So, say you want to pass to your teammate. No look pass. Those are things that can help you in the game. And again, as a point guard, not only do you want to make sure your skills are up to par, but you want to make sure you have a good attitude, because you're going to be working with a whole bunch of players, and they need to know that you're going to support them, and you're actually going to give them the ball. So you want to make sure you have a good attitude, and you get along with your teammates. And make sure that you know the plays, because if you don't know the plays, your teammates won't know the plays. So, good skills, knowing the plays, and good attitude, and you're on the way to being a good point guard.
