    Default What position do you play?

    Would be interesting to know what position you guys play in basketball.



    I play primaly as a SF and sometimes play PF, a lot like Melo, but not skillwise

    So what position do you guys play?

    PG, I'm too short for everything else at 5'11

    I'm a pass first type of PG, don't have the best jumpshot in the world, but good handle and court vision. I've also got a decent vertical.

    Funny thing is: I often make the tough shots and rim the open shots from 3 point or long 2 point range

    2 guard! Bit short at 6'2", but I weigh 198 pounds and am very dirty. The dunk has all but disappeared from my repertoire. Always wanted to play the 1, but love shooting way too much!

    Made the selection state team for Southern Australia at age 19 [11 years ago], and have become increasingly prone to hangovers and car accidents since.

    Not good for your game.

    Wow you guys are tall.

    I'm only 5'11 and can play the 4 position.
    The average height here in the Philippines is 5'6" lol, so I'm a lil bit taller than most.

    My fave move is in the post where I take one dribble left to fool the defender that I'm driving left, then I spin to the right and finish at the hoop

    PG

    5'9"

    I love to pass but my shot is nice and my handle is pretty good. Also love playing D... If u put it on the floor unsure... It's mine.

    Just sprained my ACL tho so its time to take a break.

    My nickname in HS was LJ for Larry Johnson. I am 5'10" post up player who can grab crazy boards and defend 1-5. I did not play organised ball but always banged down low in our games in the park. I have great fundamentals when it comes to defense, boxing out and setting picks. I also finish really well with both hands and prefer to do my scoring bumping off of someone while spinning to the basket or fading away for the midrange jumper.

    So I am a 240lb 5'10" PF lol. Wide, strong and quick...allows me to play above my height and box out dudes 6'4"+
