Words of wisdom for point guards (presented by Steve Nash at the Nike PG Academy):

“You should always want your coach to be critical. It gives you an opportunity to learn and to over-come 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.”
